It’s always tough to describe what I’m writing. The most difficult question anyone can ask me is, “What’s your book about?” I always tend to give them a one sentence log line, but then I always end that sentence with, “but it’s about more than that.”

So what am I writing now?

The book I’m writing now is a love story . . . but it’s about more than that.

is set in Philadelphia and features many of the city’s major attractions, from cheesesteaks to the Liberty Bell. Ask one or two members of the group to do a little research and present what they find most interesting about Philadelphia to the rest of the group. Other members could bring in food, drinks, or snacks inspired by the city.

2. The photo of Lucy and Ellie at twenty-five and twenty-nine becomes very important to Ellie, once she returns to her seventy-five-year-old self. Have each member of the book club bring in a picture of themselves at their favorite age, and discuss what they liked best about that time in their lives.

3. Ellie is thrilled to be able to wear the dress that Lucy designed in her honor. Ask members to design/describe/find a picture of their own “perfect” dress!

4. Many movies have been made exploring the theme of going back (or forward) in age—
Big, 13 Going on 30, Freaky Friday, Vice Versa,
etc. Have a movie marathon of your favorites after discussing the book.
