I thought this book about a peppy grandma who wants to be 29 again for one day would be a fun, lighthearted read. I had to put it down and move on. One of the characters (Barbara; the grandma's daughter) is portrayed as such a one dimensional hag for no apparent reason. There's no real understanding of who she is or why she's such a crabby person. The author has one of the other characters mention that she should never anger Barbara so many times I almost threw this book out the window. We get the point!
I thougth this seemed like a fun light read but it's just pointless. I gave up on page 134.. maybe it gets better but I've invested enough time. Oh well.
