Imagine if one day, you had the opportunity to meet your younger self? What would you tell this person? Would you have any specific advice for them?

This is exactly what happened to Charlotte Merryweather, a successful public relations executive in London. At age 31, she has her own PR firm, a stylish wardrobe, a personal trainer and what would seem like the perfect boyfriend for the perfect life. Underneath it all, is a stressed out executive who at the bottom of her heart, wonders if she's made the right choices in life? Is she truly happy? One day, she catches a glimpse of a young women driving the exact car she drove at age 21. Out of curiosity, she follows the car into some sort of space-time continuum that leads her to meet up with her younger self. As it slowly dawns on her what has happened, she comes up with a plan to keep her younger self from making the same mistakes that she did. Of course, the plan backfires, but Miss Charlotte ends up learning a lot about herself in the process, and finds true happiness afterall, in a place she would have least expected!

This is a wonderful story that makes one wonder what they would do if they could go back and make different choices? How would that change your current situation? I highly recommend this as a fun and engaging summer read.
