2 a.m. at The Cat's Pajamas

by Marie-Helene Bertino
£7.99   paperback  Pan Macmillan (Macmillan) (2014)

2 a.m. at The Cat A sparkling, enchanting, one-of-a-kind novel about one day in the lives of three unforgettable characters
 
Madeleine Altimari is a sassy, smart-mouthed nine-year-old and an aspiring jazz singer, inwardly mourning the recent death of her mother. Little does she know that on Christmas Eve Eve she is about to have the most extraordinary day - and night - of her life.
 
After bravely facing down some mean-spirited classmates and a galling rejection at school, Madeleine doggedly searches for Philadelphia's legendary jazz club The Cat's Pajamas, where she's determined to make her on-stage debut. Meanwhile, her fifth grade teacher Sarina Greene is nervously looking forward to a dinner party that will reunite her with an old high school crush. And across town at The Cat's Pajamas, club owner Jack Lorca discovers that his beloved haunt may have to close forever . . .
 
As these three lost souls search for love, music and hope on the snow-covered streets of Philadelphia, together they will discover life's endless possibilities over the course of one magical night.
 
A vivacious, charming and moving debut, 2 a.m. at The Cat's Pajamas will swell your heart and have you laughing out loud.
