Hi, there! Would YOU like to take a peek in my diary?
Wait, we haven't been introduced. My name is Fern, and by some wonderful stroke of good luck, I live in the beautiful, tropical Florida Keys.
My life is wacky, often wild, and always entertaining. From my love-hate relationship with the book, The Secret, to my encounters with cursing parrots and skittering crabs, the summations of my offbeat life will make you laugh right along with me.
It is a particularly exciting year because I finally meet the man of my dreams! Or is he?
This fast-paced story is an intimate look inside my life as I go all-in and hand over the keys to my diary. Go ahead...Take a PEEK!

NOTE: THIS IS NOT A STORY; IT'S A DIARY OF A WOMAN'S LIFE.
What young girl hasn't kept a diary or at least wanted to where she could write the "secrets" of her daily exploits away from the prying eyes of her friends, parents and especially a possible brother. While some used an old-fashioned school notebook, others had a real one with which locked. In Fern Mabel Burns' case, it had been a sequined one she got from her grandmother for her 12th birthday. It began became a true, loyal confident who would always be there to help her recall any event in the past.
Ms. Omata allows her readers to gain access to this wonderful journey of a middle-aged woman who has just discovered the worst sign of aging any she could have possibly gotten--that first gray hair. For Fern, it couldn't have happened on any other day, but on her 42nd birthday, the day she begins every year to start writing a new diary. And in this one she begins by reminiscing her younger days as well as introducing herself.
I found this book to be a comedic contemporary romance novel of a woman experiencing all facets of life: love, dating, a guy never seeming to have time for her when she wants/needs it, secrets being kept, etc.
As you read this book, you must remember it's not the kind of storyline you've become used in reading; it's a diary. And like a diary it's not just about the actual events Fern has experienced, but also how she actually felt about them, including her dreams, fears and ideas at various stages in her life.
At times as I read a dated entry, I, as you will, remember having the same experience some time in my life; which is why I giving this book 5 STARS.
