In Brooklyn 1982, Oona and her boyfriend Dale are ready to celebrate New Year and her 19th birthday. But at midnight, Oona finds herself in 2015 in her 51-year-old body. The only people who know what's happening is her mother and her personal assistant, Kenzie. They explain that she experiences the years of her life out of order, a bit like a time traveller.
Over the course of the book she is winging her way around the decades, never quite knowing what sort of life she is landing in. Luckily she's rich, because of some smart investments (knowing the future helps!) and her earlier self leaves a letter each time to help her adjust to the new time period.
This was an amazing story which was even better than its intriguing premise suggested. It was so easy to get caught up in Oona's life and apart from her still-in-shock, club-hopping, drug-taking period, she's the perfect character to capture your heart.
And just like Oona, the reader has plenty of fresh, unpredictable discoveries to look forward to throughout the book. This creative storyline would make for a great movie.
