Just a little note: During the time I have not been posting at all because of my second-term exams, I read 3 books; The Echo Room by Parker Peevyhouse, One by One by Freida McFadden and The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I haven’t made any posts about those books but I’ll try afterwards. I’m afraid they won’t be as detailed as they have to be in a review but I guess I’ll do just fine. I will see if I can write those reviews after…

Jessica Rae Thomas is a single parent/mother of two kids, Nicky and Tanzie(she has a dog called Norman) who has two jobs…yes, two jobs. She is a cleaner with whom she works with her friend, Nathalie and she works at a bar during the night.
One night, she meets Ed Nichols who demands for more alcohol after eleven p.m, the time they stop serving. Finally agreeing, Jess realizes that this man won’t be able to return home. She hires a taxi to bring him home. And she finds some money that fell from Ed’s pocket…
Now Jess has a very important thing to do….drive Tanzie all the way to Scotland where she will participate into a Maths competition where she can win enough money for her to pay the fees for her new school St Anne.
The problem is that her car is not insured and she has just got into trouble with the police. Fortunately Ed comes to their rescue and offers to drive Jess and her kid and her dog to Scotland.
Will all of them be able to reach Scotland? Will Tanzie be able to win this competition?
