Truly, Wildy, Deeply by Jenny McLachlan – reviewed by Eva

I’m thrilled to say that fabulous book loving Eva is back with us on Tales Before Bedtime with another super review. This time she’s chatting about Truly, Wildy, Deeply by Jenny McLachlan.  This is a delightfully charming teen read with characters you can’t help but fall in love with and one that I hope Eva would enjoy.  Let’s find out what she thought…

Eva’s thoughts

This book is an incredible twisted tale. Two people come together and do the opposite of what they what they were planning to do.

Annie is starting college and has Cerebral Palsy. She could not wait for a fresh start and not to feel different from the rest. She wanted nothing to do with falling in love and to focus only on friendships and her school work.

Then there was Fab. He is tall, wild and energetic. He left his home in Poland and is willing to stand out. He wanted to have some adventures, and he thought the greatest adventure was love, unlike Annie.

Then the two people were partnered up in class.

What will happen to these people?

The characters were exciting to read about because of their different personalities. This book was a fun book to read and I only found it a little bit tricky to follow. That is why I thought this book is for 13-15 yrs as it has a mature themes that some younger readers may not understand.
I loved this book because of the humour and adventures that Fab and Annie have together. I can’t wait to see what the author has next in store for Fab and Annie.



Annie is starting college. She can’t wait. No more school, no more uniform, and no one telling her what to do. It’s the start of a new adventure and Annie’s not going to let anyone or anything get in the way of that. Freedom matters to Annie. She has cerebral palsy and she’s had to fight hard to get the world to see her for who she truly is. Then she meets Fab. He’s six foot two, Polish and a passionate believer in…well, just about everything, but most of all Annie and good old fashioned romance. The moment Fab sees Annie, he’s wildly drawn to her and declares she must be his girl. Annie’s horrified. She doesn’t want to be anyone’s anything, especially if it means losing her independence. But then Annie finds herself falling for Fab. As things go deeply wrong, Annie realises that love can make you do wild, crazy things, and so she sets out to win his heart with a romantic gesture of truly epic proportions!

Fans fell in love with the warmth, wit, romance and fierce friendships in Flirty Dancing, Love Bomb, Sunkissed and Star Struck. Jenny McLachlan writes the best kind of real-life fiction – with big themes and characters you’ll love, her books go straight to your heart.
