This was a joyful, fun, witty, hilarious and amusing tale of a wish come true! Seventy-five-year-old Ellie Jerome makes a wish on her birthday to be 29 again, just for one day. A day later she wakes up and ‘poof’ there she is, a stunning beauty 29 years of age!!

The only one she can trust and confide in who will believe her is her own 29-year-old granddaughter Lucy. Once Lucy gets over the shock of really realizing that the gorgeous and
strikingly beautiful woman standing before her really IS her 75-year-old Grandmother, the two sit down and make a list of all the things Ellie wants to experience in one day that she had not experienced the first time she was 29.

Not wanting to involve Ellie’s daughter and Lucy’s mother, Barbra nor Ellie’s best friend Frida, Ellie and Lucy quickly gather what they need and set out on their day of adventure. In the meantime, Barbara and Frida are on their own adventure because they think Ellie has been kidnapped because they can’t find her and no one seems to have seen her. What poor Barbara and Frida go through is truly exhausting at the same time, for the reader, a giggling, sniggering, hooting laugh all the way through!

This is a fairy tale book that should become a classic!!
