In Ireland, ten year old Jenny-May Butler vanished without a trace. The Garda investigated but found no clues. Her classmate Sandy Shortt wonders what happened to Jenny-May and for that matter, possessions that seem to just vanish in thin air.-------------------------- Twenty-four years later Sandy remains obsessed with things going missing as she quit being a Garda to go private in order to concentrate on finding missing people. However, this time while she was to meet a client she goes missing. This is ironic as her job is to find the vanished and she is an intimidating 6¿1¿ so cannot hide in a crowd. Sandy has no idea where she is. However, she notices plenty of junk lying around like keys, shoes, photos etc. that are those things that just seem to vanish for no logical cause. She tries to retrace her jog, but fails to return from here. She thinks of her client Jack Rutledge whose brother is missing and her first meeting at fourteen with school psychiatrist Gregory Burton who she told she just wants to know where missing things go like a sock disappearing from the washer. She begins to understand that this place is where missing things and people go, but not how to get back.-------------- This is a delightful fanciful tale in which ¿Here¿ is a fun concept. The lead character is a strong person who holds the story line together while the support cast is solid. Although there is no explanation as to why ¿Here¿ exists it just is readers will enjoy this whimsical visit to a place like no other as it just in the fertile imagination of Cecilia Ahern.-------------- Harriet Klausner

I had high hopes...

This book was such a disappointment- especially after having read and loved P.S. I love you and Love,Rosie. I kept waiting for the book to get better but it never did. I found myself skimming most of the book and still able to follow the storyline. Maybe the next boo...

    I could really relate. . .

    As a 50 plus mom who's spent years looking for lost items, I could really relate to this main character. Thankfully my losses have never been human, but I know all too well about frantically searching for wallets, keys, papers, books, rings, glasses, pets. . . my mind. I loved this book. And to my way of thinking, 'Here' might just be Heaven!

    I really liked this whimsical book

    Losing things... the bane of my life. This is a funny, offbeat sort of story that is just so different that I am not sure I could explain it! I got confused at first as to what was going on, but it soon became clearer and I could not put it down. I have always wondered where all the stuff I cannot find goes. I wonder if they now have round trip flights there...? Definately a flight of fancy sort of book! ;-)

    Beautiful!

    Cecelia Ahern has a beautiful way of leading the reader with her words. I related a lot to the main character; always losing & searching. This was one of those reads I didnt put down til the last page :)

    Love this book!

    This book was amazing, in my opinion. Mystery, missing people, psychology... I had a hard time putting it down! The chapters tend to go back in forth between the past and present as well as between Sandy's world and what's going on in the "real" world. I wanted to keep reading and find out what would happen, and was sad when it ended! The end doesn't really explain what exactly happened, it's more up to you to decide/interpret. I'm now on the search for another book to keep me interested like this one did.
