Twenty-two year old Roxie Golightly is a fun and carefree spirit...until she marries a wealthy man and her role as a trophy wife leaves her isolated in a condo with an ironing board and an obsessive desire to impress people. When her marriage ends after seven years, Roxie's identity is buried under layers of furniture polish and piles of designer shoes. She doubts she can ever be the person she once was. But when Roxie's charmed life is turned upside down, her best-friend creates The Good Life List to help turn it back around. The instructions are simple: Complete each task on the Good Life List by the end of the summer. With list in hand and the help of a sexy and charismatic guy from her past, Roxie is only a few check marks away from living the good life, even if it means getting thrown out of a bar or skinny-dipping in the neighbor's pool at 3am.
Narrator's voice certainly matched the protagonist's personality in a 20-something presentation.
The angst of the heroine was a little over the top at times, making me want to choke her for being so insecure, but her repeated self-doubt definitely got the point across.
The hero was a little too perfect. A minor flaw or two might have made his character more dimensional & real.
Overall, a fun story that will hold the reader's attention. Definitely recommended for young adults who can relate to someone just starting out in life on their own.
