person she was always meant to be, as well as the one she’s meant
to be with.

and entertaining fiction to deliver chick lit which has real issues and
realistic characters at its heart. New adult audiences and chick lit
fans alike will enjoy the development of Julie, who is highly relatable
in her dreams, ideals, and naivety as the novel begins. Her journey
with Kieran opens her eyes to what the world truly has to offer, and

experience for her. The drama of the plot has plenty of ups and
downs, and the issue of true sexual awakening is dealt with in a
realistic and sensitive manner. Overall, Galway Gone is an uplifting
