Fast Forward is about an aspiring model, Kelli. The story starts on the eve of her 25th birthday. Her friend thinks that her boyfriend is going to propose and it seems like her life is perfect. That is until she goes to sleep and wakes up and is FIFTY! Somehow she fast forwards 25 years to her 50th birthday instead of her 25th. She is so confused, she has no idea where she is, why she is married to the high school nerd or how to work all of the new technology that has come along. She is surprised to find out that she has a son, Ryan, after she had said she was never going to have kids and later finds out she also has a daughter, Diora, and she is about to be a grandmother!
Spending just one day in her future, she realizes that everything she is striving for at 25 is not what will truly make her happy and she realizes that the life she has at 50 is what she really wants. But, how can she get back to herself at 25 and fix things? Or will she be stuck in the future forever with no memory of the past 25 years?
This was a super cute book and a fast read. I really enjoyed it because I liked how much Kelli matured and realized what was really important to her in just one day. So much so even her friends realized it. With a big birthday of my own having just passed, it definitely makes me think. Am I on the right path to what I will want in the future? How should I change what I’m doing to make sure I’m doing what is truly making me happy, regardless of what others may think?
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
