About the book
Everyone has secrets, but no one can hide them from Cici!
As a future writer, Cici knows what questions to ask and where to find the clues she needs to unlock peoples’ hearts. Yet even though Cici is great at helping others, for a long time now she has kept a dark and painful secret hidden inside herself.
Cici’s friends and mom all want to help her heal, but she keeps pushing them away. Can a treasure hunt, a mysterious mansion, and an epic beachside fight help her to open up at last?
I’m totally in love with this comic.
This one has 3 little stories, and I love how everything comes round in this one, seriously was an experience for me.
Some of the stories if not all, always have a hearth breaking quality but also so much joy, one thing I loved about the stories too is that helps cici and her mother grow as persons and to get help when they have a problem.
I did cried with Cici’s own story but it was so wholesome at the end and it actually made me reflect on things that we as people tend to do a lot and carry the baggage when we shouldn’t and don’t ask for help when we actually need it, it made me want to get all my problems out in any way and begin to heal my hearth and mind and feel happy again and just live and be good everyday, so in a way Cici inspired me to want to be a better person and regain happiness for myself.
The illustrations are breathtaking so recommended for anyone who just want to learn how to be more happy or just read something beautiful.
