    A Cat, a Hat and a Piece of String
    by Joanne Harris is a wonderful collection of interlinked short stories. They link to each other as well as to her other published works. Sometimes going as far as being a sequel other times a simple nod and cameo appearances. These short stories cover a variety of themes rather than being a collection of thrillers or love shorts, which alongside the fact that each is about 10 pages in length, maintained my interest even on my most distracted of days. From little old ladies causing mischief to train station cafés and the strong lure of the internet and social networks, this book covers a little bit of just about everything and adds an unexpected twist.

    I should put some kind of spoiler alert here as to explain my feelings about this book I will most likely end up giving away key twists and possibly the ending.

    Yours is mine is written from the perspective of the different characters, mostly the story is told by Kate, a solicitor who is taking a long home based sabbatical following the very traumatic experience of nursing her father who recently passed away. Kate’s husband, a naval officer, is currently away on deployment when Kate receives an email out of the blue inviting her to switch lives for 3 months as part of a PhD experiment.

    This book is about a young girl who was training to win Gold in the Olympics at skiing. She then had an accident on a ski lift that left her paralysed from the waist down. Whilst a tragic story, this book shows how something like this can be turned into something amazing, and touch other lives in a way you would not think possible.

    Emily is a strange girl. She spends her free time walking around the woods alone. Except one day, She is not alone. One day she finds a body. But Emily is not a normal girl she isn't scared, she doesn't tell anyone. She keeps this discovery to herself and visits more and more to learn about the body like a Science project.

    The more Emily learns the more we do. We learn about the sister who’s sister has gone missing and how it forces her to confront her other relationships. We learn about the disenchanted factory worker who realises his life has failed to accomplish anything.

    I found this book to be a story of failed dreams and missed chances but it is so well written that you are so greedy to discover more that the true nature of the book isn't apparent until after you have finished.
