Ten Birthdays 

What would you do if you lost your mom at age 15 and had a letter from her for every birthday till age 25? Would you read the letters all at once, or would you wait each birthday to read the next one? Poppy chooses the latter.

This novel goes through each year and how her mom’s letter to her corresponds with her life and what is currently happening.  Poppy has two best friends Mark and Freya. They’ve dated each other for years and Poppy doesn’t know if she’ll ever find love. Poppy’s father is a tad distant going through his own grief and life struggles. She stays best friends with Mark and Freya through their relationship ups and downs.

This story was sweet. It was filled with different British terms since it takes place in the U.K. This book shows the importance of a relationship between a mother and daughter. I highly recommend this book. It was given to me for free from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
