The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry

by Gabrielle Zevin
£7.99   paperback  Little, Brown Book Group (Abacus) (2015)

The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin The little book with the big heart - the New York Times bestseller that has won passionate fans around the world.
 
Originally published as The Collected Works of A. J. Fikry.
 
"Who the hell are you?" A.J. asks the baby.
For no apparent reason, she stops crying and smiles at him. "Maya," she answers.
That was easy, A.J. thinks. "How old are you?" he asks.
Maya holds up two fingers.
"You're two?"
Maya smiles again and holds up her arms to him."

 
A.J. Fikry, the grumpy owner of Island Books, is going through a hard time: his bookshop is failing, he has lost his beloved wife, and a prized rare first edition has been stolen.
 
But one day A.J. finds two-year-old Maya sitting on the bookshop floor, with a note attached to her asking the owner to look after her. His life - and Maya's - is changed forever.
