Cecilia Ahern: The year I met you

Jasmine loves two things: her sister and her work. And when her work is taken away she has no idea who she is. Matt loves two things: his family and the booze. Without them, he hits rock bottom. One New Year’s Eve, two people’s paths collide. Both have time on their hands; both are at a crossroads. But as the year unfolds, through moonlit nights and suburban days, an unlikely friendship slowly starts to blossom. Sometimes you have to stop still in order to move on…

A lovely story about endings and new beginnings in life and how some seemingly horrible situations might actually be the beginning of something good. There are some predictable aspects to the story line but the characters were well developed and that drove the story on. A lovely Christmas story really. And it did make me cry, too.
