The Year We Turned Forty examines what life would be like if you could go back in time and relive a year. It has been getting some terrific reviews. The New York Times calls it “at once poignant and light-hearted…a spot-on, delightful read.” Kirkus says it is “A lighthearted novel—touched with magical elements—exploring the emotional high jinks that ensue when three best friends are given the chance to travel 10 years back in time.’’ Library Journal writes that it is “A quick, lively, and stimulating tale with highly likable main characters, this book addresses the what-if moments in life. An entertaining read for fans of Emily Giffin and Jennifer Weiner.’’
We hope to see you there!
