I too loved this book! Definitely one to be read again in the future! Here in the UK it was printed with pink edged pages which made me love it even more!

Wonderful to see someone else who loved this book. But I said all that in my review already.
I read this one before I started my blog and it had a different cover. Pingback: A challenge! Oh what a Challenge! Emily and Her Little Pink Notes. I also loved this book and sing its praises as often as I can. I found it similar in tone and subject a bright girl coming of age in England very similar to I Capture the Castle, which I love equally and recommend to those who loved this book. Search for:.

The Book Trail The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets - The Book Trail
The characters enjoy listening and dancing to records into the night, talking, telling stories and there is a lot of laughter and giggling but very little of any substance. Comparisons have been made with Enid Blyton and at times the book reads like one of her adventures — iced buns and ginger beer replaced by lavish dinner parties and champagne. The influence of American culture is strong, with references to the music, art and fashion that was becoming so popular in the s. Anyone with an interest in this era will enjoy this aspect of the book.
The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets is an easy read but we felt it was too fanciful and unimaginative. The book relies on a number of unconvincing co-incidences to connect stereotypical characters and develop the plot.
The character of Rocky, in particular, appears to be very useful in this respect. Twists and turns in the narrative were promptly untangled and any remaining loose ends, for example, the problem of Magna, were conveniently but dubiously resolved. Belonging to a book group offers the opportunity to read books you would not normally choose and invariably this results in finding some unexpected delights, surprising discoveries and occasionally, disappointment.
