PS, I Love You by Cecelia Ahern

PS, I Love You

Cecelia Ahern

Truly, Madly, Deeply for the working-class girl. Karaoke replaces classical duets and Dublin cafes the National Theatre piazza. But, from laughter to tears, the emotions are the same. Enjoy a good wallow!

Extract

'Anyway, Holly, all I'm saying is that you don't have to do this if you don't want to. Nobody is forcing you ...'
'Ladies and gentlemen, let's let Holly know that she's up next!' yelled the DJ. 'Come on!'
Everybody began to stamp their feet and chant her name.
'OK, well, at least nobody who cares about you is forcing you to do this', stammered Sharon, now under pressure from the approaching mob. 'But if you don't do this, I know you will never be able to forgive yourself. Gerry wanted you to do this for a reason.'
