Thirty Days to Thirty by Courtney Psak is a humorous but thought provoking story about how success can so easily be stripped away. Jill is one month away from her 30th birthday and she thinks she has it all. Working all the hours she can to make partner at the law firm and with a boyfriend that she thinks she loves, she is happy with her life. Until the day she gets fired and finds her boyfriend cheating on her. In one fell swoop it’s all gone and Jill is forced to go back to her parents with her tail between her legs. While she slumps around her old bedroom, a room that doesn’t seem to have changed since she left it, she finds a list that she wrote when she was in high school – a list of thirty things that she wanted to accomplish before she turned thirty. With a month to go, she finds that there is actually very little on the list that she has done so, with the help of her best friend Liz and her old high school boyfriend Chris, she sets about crossing them off. This is more than just crossing a few things off a list though; this is a journey of self-discovery, one that Jill wishes she had taken years ago.

Thirty Days to Thirty by Courtney Psak is a wonderful story. As well as being exceedingly well written, it contains a lot of life stories that so many of us can identify with. It has everything – the upset, the pain, the humour and the romance – as well as the joys of living with your parents again! It is a fast paced story and it never lets up. There are no dead spaces in it, every page has something going on, some drama, piece of useful advice or discovery. This is a book that so many people will be able to identify with and I feel that the ending has been left open for another story – or at least I hope so! This is one of the best books I have read in this genre and I recommend it to any 20-something who doesn’t seem to have any real direction in life – this will give you some.
