Summary

Jenny discovers her days are numbered at the same time she discovers her husband is having an affair...as is her life wasn't tough enough already. Two tricky teenagers, her mother's constant complaints, friends who aren't up to the job and a career which has been spiralling downwards. And now a cheating husband and a death sentence.

Jenny vows to keep both catastrophes a secret. She takes her life - and death - into her own hands and decides to live as she did when she was happiest...in 1996. She plans a spectacular 1990s themed party in place of a wake that she will attend. But will she be able to keep her secrets for long enough?

different and I loved it

I cried...won't lie, absolutely loved it. A hard thing to write about and even read but it was wonderful and the emotions were incredibly raw and real.

Amazing book

What an amazing book. It made me laugh, cry and really think about life. It was a joy to read even though at times it was so sad. But as I say some parts were funny, I recommend this book as one of the best I've ever read/listened to.

Great

A bit of a departure from Tracy’s usual stuff .. but nonetheless unputdownable. A great unsight into the dilemma of being terminally ill.

it was a great read but wee bit disappointed with the ending could have said what happened with the kids and all that. But over all a good read! 😊

Loved the book but hated the narration.

Wish I'd read as an actual book instead of listening to it.
Such a shame as it was well written.

Super book! Thought provoking!!

When I realised the book involved a terminal illness I almost sent it back as it is not really the kind of book i prefer! However I am so glad I continued to listen as it was just a very beautiful thought provoking book! It is also inspiring to live, laugh and love in the moment!
