31 Dream Street Paperback
by Lisa Jewell
Leah and Toby have lived across the street from one another for years without meeting ...and Leah has been itching to peek behind the front door of Toby's eccentric house, always packed to the rafters with weird and wonderful tenants.
When fate finally lets her in, Leah finds that Toby needs her as much as she is surprised to realize she might need him.
Sometimes life needs a helping hand and with a sprinkle of romance and their own special magic, Toby and Leah's dreams show the glimmer of a chance of coming true. 31 Dream Street is a wonderfully warm and insightful novel that will capture the imagination and soothe the soul.

Review by kaddi22
I dont like it too much, because all book is about homeless, lifeless people. It speaks about lot of people, and it is tired for me.Nem nagyon tetszett a konyv, mert sok emberrol szolt, akik inkabb csak menekultek, eltemettek magukat. Igaz, ez is az elet resze, de inkabb jobban szeretek vidamabb dolgokat olvasni, a szereplok sokszor hulyen dontenek, mint a valosagban. Realis is volt, meg eltulzott. Toby es Leah, akik inkabb mellekszereplok voltak, mert talan kevesebbet irt roluk az irono, mint barki masrol. Pedig a bevezetoben ugy tunik ok a foszereplok, s vmi romantikus regeny lesz.
Review by StoryB
A warm-hearted story that glows with sincere wisdom.This book is much more than just about the comings and goings of tenants in a big, London house, which is in need of some tender loving care. It delves quite deeply into the characters' reasons for living in this particularly unique house and how along the line, each has lost a little bit of themselves or are unhappy in some way. Stuck in a rut, they have dreams and they have unspoken wisdom - it just needs an outlet and willpower and new events to set them on a brighter path. It's here that the author shines so eloquently and true, as each gives a voice to their heart and starts to communicate.
