This is a SUMMER MUST READ because it has all the elements of a great summer yarn. Love, sadness, happiness and finally a coming of age story that will knock you off your feet. - "TeeKyleJacobson" adiaryofabookaddict.blogspot.co.uk

'Sarah Smiles exists within a genre of stories that I'm rarely attracted to, but regardless, I was completely enchanted and won over by this coming of age story. The author has beautifully rendered the world of young teenagers living in a foreign land, with such insight and emotion, that I honestly felt touched'

By popular demand - An extended and stand alone version of the young adult/coming of age story, from the second part of the acclaimed novel 'The Universe Doesn't Do Second Chances'

It's the late nineteen eighties and thirteen year old Liam and his family have just moved to the climatic sunshine paradise island of Cyprus.

On his first day at school he becomes completely spellbound by the pretty tomboy Sarah. Though not only because of her cute and athletic good looks. But also because of her rough and tough, jagged edged ways and her no nonsense approach to handling school bully Michael.

This incident triggers off a series of exciting and dramatic events that brings the homely, well rounded Liam and the troubled young Sarah's worlds colliding together. The two then begin an unusual and exciting yet somewhat tragic friendship, which will stay with them for the rest of their lives, as they both battle to confront their inner most fears and demons.

From the mystery of Sarah's Mother's disappearance to the trials and tribulations of growing up on the move with army parents. Sarah's domestic abuse issues living in a broken home with her alcoholic father to dealing with Liam's school bullying from the borderline psychotic Michael. There are Summertime adventures to be had, gorgeous Cypriot beaches and bondoo valley wastelands to explore. To haunted houses, dark hidden caves and first teen romances. All the while dealing with that delicate yet rough transition into becoming a teenager.

But how long can these summertime adventures last when children are forced to grow up so fast in an ever changing world, especially when unforeseen tragedies are just around the corner...

Sarah Smiles is an adventurous, romantic tale for all adults, and young adults alike to enjoy.
