One Hundred Names by Cecelia Ahern

Journalist Kitty Logan’s career has been destroyed by scandal, and she now faces losing the woman who guided her and taught her everything she knew. At her mentor’s bedside, Kitty asks her – what is the one story she always wanted to write?
The answer lies in a file buried in Constance’s office: a list of one hundred names. There is no synopsis, no explanation, nothing else to explain what the story is or who these people are. The list is simply a mystery.
But before Kitty can talk to her friend, it is too late.
With everything to prove, Kitty is assigned the most important task of her life – to write the story her mentor never had the opportunity to. Kitty has to not only track down and meet the people on the list, but find out what connects them. And, in the process of hearing ordinary people’s stories, she uncovers Constance’s – and starts to understand her own…


Kitty's life is a mess. She's made a terrible mistake at work in front of the whole country and has to pay the price. Fortunately she's got her friend Constance who understands what she's going through and who will never give up on her. She has a project for Kitty, but before she can tell her what it's all about she passes away. The only thing Kitty has is a list of one hundred names. She needs to track these people down and find out what their connection is. Kitty's healing while working on her project. At the same time she discovers which of the people who are close to her are on her side.
Kitty has some flaws and she knows about them. That makes her a great main character. I loved the people on the list and their stories. I also really liked the lesson that can be learned from this book. Even if everything in life seems to go wrong, you can turn things around by working hard and being positive. There are second chances in life. I really liked this wonderful and warm story!
