29 could have been clichéd, but is instead fresh and intriguing because of great characters and unexpected plotlines. Humor, an accurate portrait of a modern, active older woman and a family that is all too real make this book great.
Widow Ellie Jerome hates to admit it, but she envies her granddaughter Lucy’s life with all the possibilities of jobs and education she can pursue. Ellie makes a birthday wish to be Lucy’s age again for just for a day and her dream comes true, changing her life and those of her family and friends in unexpected ways. (TOUCHSTONE, Jul., 288 pp., $14.99)
