We gave it a B

Ahern, the author of sentimental chick-lit charmers like 2004?s PS, I Love You, takes a more gothic turn in her latest, The Book of Tomorrow, recasting herself as a lost Brontë sister for the Facebook set. Strangely, the supernatural diary of the title — it tells the next day?s news before it comes — is hardly necessary to her tale of a pampered Irish teen who, after the death of her father, is forced to resettle in her odd uncle?s country bungalow. Lovers of stories involving crumbling castles, nefarious family secrets, and Zac Efron references will be ecstatic. The rest? Pleasantly diverted for an afternoon. B
