Review quote

Beautiful, moving and witty Cecilia Ahern, author of P.S. I Love You Completely captivating and full of emotion Lisa Williamson, author of The Art of Being Normal Witty, intriguing and heartwarming Non Pratt, author of Trouble Is one of those stories that makes you feel special, like the author is sharing a secret with you. I would highly recommend this story to YA readers but also to historical fiction readers. Actually, scratch that. I highly recommend this story to everyone. I finished this story a couple of weeks ago already and I still find myself thinking about it constantly. A beautiful novel that will move many hearts. Alba In Bookland Margot & Me is Juno Dawson's best book to date. It was emotional and moving, I was sucked into the story and unable to put the book down. I loved the diary entries, it felt like they truly transported me back in time. It explored so many issues of the time; the racism and homophobia, as well as the everyday struggles of living during a time of war.
