Carla D'Agostino is not your typical heroine. Stuck in a seemingly dead-end job, single, and still living with her overbearing Italian-American parents, Carla is thrown for a loop when she realizes her ten-year high school reunion is fast approaching. True love, a career as a sports radio talk show host, the perfect body--every dream remains frustratingly out of reach no matter how Carla strives and schemes. Out of reach, that is, until unexpected events lead her right back to where she started, and Carla discovers that all she ever wanted was right in front of her the whole time. "Ten Years Later" is a witty, unpredictable tale of one ordinary young woman's race for the top as she throws caution to the wind and decides to go for her dreams.

Book Review

This book is about a woman in her late twenties, who is stuck in her dead-end job and still living with her parents when everyone else has moved out and found their perfect path in life.  Meet Carla, an ordinary woman who thrives to complete her dreams and is always there to help other by going out of the way.
Carla’s journey from the low self confidence to the person who is the top celebrity in the sports broadcasting world is immensely funny, adorable and entertaining. This book is about how she discovers her true self while stuck in the middle of some egoistic and self proclaimed stars in the radio station she works. This journey gets a kick start when she receives a invitation for her school reunion and this is her motivation to achieve everything that she ever wanted, coz all her friends and school mates are either settled with their life or are at better end than her. Thus journey leads to numerous changes in her life and the life of her three best friends Dante, Katie and Andrea. Katie is a successful Baker, while Andrea is married to a rich doctor; Dante is the only option who Carla sees when she thinks she is doing worst in life.

 Her journey is one hell of a roller coaster ride. The story is simple and yet wonderful.

Rating : 3/5 *
