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.

I laughed and I cried

At first I was worried it was going to upset me to listen to this story being menopausal and emotional!
But it has the right balance of sorrow and laughter. I enjoyed listening to it and will listen to more Tracy Bloom books! Especially as she's from my home town and hearing familiar places made me smile!

Easy to listen to

Easy to listen to whilst doing jobs in the house. Was a nice book that I was enjoying but the ending was just so abrupt and honestly made me annoyed haha.

Glad I picked this book.

Strange to say but it had quite a bit of fun in it despite the overall theme.
Made you think about how you would react in the same situation.
very good narrator.
