“You need a plan B,” said Alicia’s mother when at five years old she told her what she wanted to be when she grew up. Thirty odd years later, Alicia is on plan D: sharing a flat, no tangible savings, and working for hateful Julia, whose sole purpose in life is to make her existence utterly miserable. Good thing she has Oscar and the girls to make the long hours at work bearable. But when a series of events tears the close-knit group apart, putting friendships and motives under suspicion, will Alicia be able to restore balance and set things right? More importantly, will she ever be able to upgrade her life to at least plan C?
Rating: 5 stars
When I Grow Up…by Patricia Asedegbega is a fascinating read. Readers will be instantly pulled in by this writer’s words. Her characters and scenes come to life. I absolutely loved reading this. The suspense and interesting characters kept me hooked until the last page. Readers will find this read full of humor, mystery, and excitement. The ending was super good…Readers will be kept guessing as the plot unfolds. Fast-paced, brilliantly well-written, and the characters are so real. I look forward to reading more by this writer in the future. Her charaters are fun people that if they were real, I would love to meet them. Overall, I highly recommend this novel to readers everywhere.
