The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets

As I am home for the summer, I have borrowed my dad's library card to take some books out for me to read. I chose a couple that I would probably not have read/bought and now that I have finished the first book, I am glad that I did.

 The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets is a book set in the 1950's following the life of Penelope Wallace, an 18 year old girl who would just like to grow up and fall in love with her favourite pop star Johnnie Ray. The story begins with how she met Charlotte, a girl her age but very different in personality to Penelope. This is definitely a very girlie book, talking about fashion, shopping, falling in love, pop stars and food. I absolutely loved the book I couldn't stop reading it at the end, as I just had to know what happened! I really connected with Penelope, she was so honest with herself and how much she admired Charlotte's confidence.
Even though this novel was set in the mid 1950's it was lovely to read and I would recommend it to everyone!
