Summary

What would you do if you woke up 30 years older than you were yesterday?

Brooklyn, 1982. Oona Lockhart and her boyfriend are about to ring in the New Year and Oona's 19th birthday. 

But seconds after the New Year begins, Oona is torn from her life and everyone she loves, finding herself in her 51-year-old body 33 years into the future. The life she had is gone, and all she is a letter from herself from the previous year to guide her.  

Each year on the stroke of midnight she finds herself resurfacing in a different year of her own adulthood. Still a young woman on the inside, but ever changing on the outside, who will she be next year? Wealthy philanthropist? Club kid? World traveller? Wife to a man she's never met? The Rearranged Life of Oona Lockhart is an uplifting joyride through an ever-changing world that shows us what it means to accept your fate and truly live in the moment.

I wanted to love it.

It was a really smart concept. However I personally found the beginning too slow and the end to sudden. It felt that all the potential for interesting revelations was completely missed. In the end I was left slightly unsatisfied.
