While reading When You Were Here, the main character will most certainly win your heart. He has struggled through a difficult period in his life, losing both parents and going through a break up, but he never hides his feelings. When reading about Danny, you see raw and fierce emotions. His world expands when he travels to Japan and the reader has the chance to experience his mother’s life through his eyes. You will get captured by Danny’s journey, and you will long for him to find love, life and happiness – wherever it may be. This is a must read for anyone who has held back what their true feelings are, or who feels like they may have something left to say.
