YOU can’t be a celebrity these days if you only have one talent. You have to be a multi-faceted variety act who can turn your hand to pretty much anything.
Carrie Hope Fletcher
Enter Carrie Hope Fletcher, the YouTube sensation and West End-star who releases her debut novel, On The Other Side this week.
This young adult romance ‘with a twist’ tells the story of Evie Snow, an 82-year-old who finds herself locked out of heaven and transported back 60 years to fix the mistakes of her past.
Along the way she relives forgotten memories, sheds long-suppressed secrets and encounters lovers she never imagined would resurface. On The Other Side is a pleasant, uplifting read with youthful optimism.
However, the language and plot are unfairly simplistic for a teenage audience, and the storyline runs away at an uncompromising pace that may leave readers questioning its believability.
However, it is a fun read and sure to make the bestseller list regardless thanks to Fletcher’s army of YouTube-fans.
