Summary

As her best friend, Tashy, cuts into her wedding cake, 32-year-old Flora realises she is disillusioned with life. Suddenly her well-paid job, cosy flat and stable relationship with sensible Olly don't amount to a whole lot. Flora wants to be 16 again. She closes her eyes and wishes. Her wish has come true.

Waking up the next morning is a shock. But now Flora has the chance to right some wrongs. Trading crow's feet for pimples, love handles for a torso Britney Spears would kill for and dull dinner parties for house parties where White Lightning and snogging are the order of the day, Flora revels in a life where things are far less complicated and just much more...fun.

It's not all laughs, though. Will what she does change the future? How can she get back to the present and her ordinary life? And does she even want to?

Bloody silly and far fetched

This book had potential. Thought it was silly and far fetched.
Without giving to much away I found it silly. Some people remember her some don't/ doesn't make sense.
Ending was nonsense

I love Jenny... but...

This was awful!!! teenage strops all the way through, and don't get me started on the fact that in some ways it's morally wrong (don't want to spoil it by being specific) but I felt very uncomfortable, wish I'd not dismissed the reviews so easily...
