Rose is deep in the “sweatpant years” raising three children, but every night, she returns to the same empowering island of adventure she has visited since she was six years old, where she’s a heroine and she’s always with her dream friend, Hugo. Then she meets Hugo in real life.
Foley’s writing zings with vivid details in both worlds and stretches reality in a most natural way. I found this absolutely delightful, and it helped me appreciate the magic of the everyday.
