Sometimes the hardest lesson you have to learn is that you can’t control everything. Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith and trust that it will all be okay in the end.
Camilla Valentini is a planner. Ever since she could write, she would sit down and compose lists of her daily to do’s, her goals, and her dreams. These lists have taken her through most of her life and served her well. She is living in the city that she loves, has a job that pays the bills or at least most of them, and has the best group of friends a girl can ask for.
However when her life gets turned upside down by a fire in her apartment building, she is left with no place to live, piles of burnt manuscripts, and more importantly only one pair of shoes! As far as she is concerned, things couldn’t get worse. Until she gets fired from her job as a copy editor. Apparently, it was a big mistake to not go on that date with the boss’s son.
Faced with some difficult decisions to make, Cami will have to take a close look at who she is and if she even likes that person. Because when it hits the fan, that is when things really start to get interesting and you can become who you were always meant to be.
I cannot tell you how much I loved this book. The characters are amazing, and you can relate to all of them. I mean, I think we all have a Sophia in our life. I know I do, and that would be the bestie. But this group of friends is eclectic, and make the perfect crazy bunch.
I enjoyed reading about Cami, and what she has to do when her world turns upside down. She doesn’t know what she’s going to do, and I’ve felt that way in my life. (See, I can relate.) I could understand how she views life, and how that shapes her into the person she is and the choices she makes.
I think the thing I enjoyed the most in this book were the friendships. You know they have Cami’s back, but they also give her a reality check, and that’s something we could all use sometimes.
Sometimes when everything crashes down on you, you have to pick up your feet and do things a little differently.
