This book is so special, creative and unique! It’s about a 17-year-old girl and an 83 year-old woman who meet in art therapy class when they are both in the terminal ward of a hospital in Glasgow, Scotland and forge an unexpected strong bond and friendship. They decide to work on a project together, creating 100 pieces of art, one for each year of their collective lives. Through the stories they tell each other about the pieces of art, we learn their history and what brought them to this point in their lives. Endearing, charming, heartbreaking, surprising, beautiful, and well written… this is a story that grabs you by the heart and stays with you.
