    This book was absolutely charming Each character has their story to tell and their own authentic selves to share which they do through a notebook Each time a story is told the notebook is then left for someone else to find and because people are essentially good, each new person feels like they should help the person before This results in a chain of good deeds that brings them together and changes their lives Each new writer propels the plot forward as they read the previous stories and This book was absolutely charming Each character has their story to tell and their own authentic selves to share which they do through a notebook Each time a story is told the notebook is then left for someo...
