Sounds Like Love
Sounds Like Love is a wonderful story about a young lady named Wendy. Wendy is heartbroken as her grandmother, whom she was very close to, has passed away. Wendy goes over to her grandmother’s house to collect some keepsakes that her grandmother has left her. To her surprise, her grandmother has left her not only a few material possessions such as a vase and a hundred-year-old teapot, but she has also left her her cat, also named Wendy. The problem is, Wendy (the person) really does not like cats. She spends most of the time in the book looking for a new home for the cat. She attempts to bring the cat to the local animal shelter, but they are full right now. Then, she tries to bring the cat to a neighbor’s house only the neighbor says the cat can only stay a few days because her son is allergic to cats and will be back in a few days. Wendy is very frustrated. That is until she realizes that this may not be any ordinary cat. We follow Wendy as she discovers what is truly important in life — love, companionship, and understanding among those things.
I truly enjoyed reading Sounds Like Love. The story was written so simply and was easy to follow for its young adult genre. It also taught important life lessons that all humans should learn such as giving new things a chance and if something is meant to be then it will be. Wendy’s character is cute and quirky and she is all but perfect but as we follow her in her journey to find a new home for Wendy the Cat, it is easy to feel the transition in Wendy’s heart of her feelings for the cat. I also really liked Simon, the man who works at the animal shelter. The little spark between Wendy and Simon at the shelter seems to foreshadow that Simon might show up later in the book and as I read on, I was hoping that they would meet again. Author Laura Ford does a fantastic job of creating a story that flows well and keeps the reader captivated from beginning to end. This is a sweet story that will leave its readers feeling warm and fuzzy. Overall, this book is a great read for fans of light-hearted fiction.
