I thought this was pretty meh at first, but things changed about halfway through and it got better. This ended up being a lovely book, and even gave me a few things to think about.

The setting makes the book. The story itself is disappointing. The main character, Katy, is selfish and immature. She is grieving the loss of her mother- her great love- her sibling and best friend. Her mother was also an expert on everything and had a clear opinion on "the right way to do things", Katy relied on her to make any decision..clothes, "roads to take", having a family, and therefore losing her is devastating because Katy is completely unprepared to live or function without her.
(“When you’re just a reflection, what happens when the image vanishes?” p. 201)
The point is finding herself in her mother's youth. Katy should learn to become more herself. Great lesson through an annoying, name-dropping, and whining character!
What Katy does learn is that her mother was not the perfect person Katy imagined her to be. She does learn to be "present"... and appreciate her life as is now.
Although I rated it 3 out of 5 stars, members of our book club gave it either ranged between 3 and 4 stars. We had a lively discussion about parenting, "adulting", and change. Several members chose the same quote to discuss:
“What got you here won’t get you there… the same set of circumstances, beliefs, actions that got you to a moment won't get you to what comes next. ..if you want a different outcome, you have to behave differently.” p. 116
I also found myself referring to this quote in a conversation with my own family!

Interesting book which seemed like a love story with a bit of fantasy. Then it changed and became much more serious. The friendships were more fun than the love story which was predictable.
