About the Author
JEMMA FORTE grew up wanting to write for Cosmopolitan magazine or be a famous actress. Her parents didn t really want her to go to stage school because, according to them, she was precocious enough already. However, they actively encouraged her obsession with reading and writing, so she wrote her first book Mizzy the germ when she was eight. Years later, due to The Kids from Fame, (and she blames them entirely) her desire to perform hadn t abated. Many hundreds of letters, showreels and auditions later she finally became a Disney Channel presenter in 1998 where she remained for five years. After Disney Jemma went on to present shows for ITV, BBC1, BBC2 and C4. She is now an author, actor and presenter, and this is Jemma s third novel

Jennifer has an accident and she is transported to a kind of afterlife waiting room in the form of the famous tunnel. Each door she picks leads her to another "what if" scenario.
To be honest, I found all of the jumping around from past to present to present past all very confusing at first. It took a lot of getting used to and I think it distracted me from the story because I had to keep turning back pages to figure out the time-line in my head.
After five weeks in a coma, Jennifer wakes up. Having lived multiple "what if" lives, she is now blessed with gift of hindsight. If there is a moral to the story, I would have to say this: it is nice revisiting the past but you can never wish away your children. In theory, any choice that is made - that results in children, by default is the right one.
The ending is slightly inconclusive, but so is life. Sometimes you end up exactly where you are meant to be. It was a very enjoyable book that will lead to you being thought provoked and take you to the land of "What if's".
It's a good story about missed chances and regrets but not really the lighthearted read I hoped for.
I actually REALLY loved this! It reminded me a lot of Ali Harris' Written in the Stars that I read in 2014, yet it was different enough to not feel as though you were reading the same story.
It was original, and kept me on the edge of my seat for the 3 days it took me to devour it because simply put, I couldn't put it down!
Jennifer is basically having a mid life crisis, one of those moments in life where you wake up and suddenly wonder if you made the right choices in life, if this is ALL there is, and what if.... you'd done things differently.
We've all had those WHAT IF moments, and I couldn't help nodding along as Jennifer's story unfolded. We always wonder what if...about out exes, we do it ladies, and maybe only our closest girlfriends know, but in this book, it's OK to admit to Jennifer that you know exactly what she's going through.
It starts with Jen running away from Max, her husband in a rather Bridget Jones styled way, and before you know it she's been hit, and is being taken to hospital where she is in a coma.
Whilst she's in her comatose state she gets the chance to go tunnel travelling to all the possibilities that could have been. She gets to see what life would have been like had she gone to Australia with Aiden (who is more laid back than an ozzie) rather than University, or marry Tim, creator of reUNIon... the super rich guy who at first looks amazing, but, i don't know about you, but when I read about life with him, I had to verbally declare that Jennifer, in my opinion should absolutely stay clear of him, and lastly there is Max, her husband.Read more ›
I was soon drawn into the story and loved how each of the ex boyfriends would have offered Jennifer a very different lifestyle to the one she is living now. I particularly liked the way that Jennifer herself seems to be a slightly different person in each of her different lives, adapting to the circumstances she finds herself in.
I was hooked, wanting to know how everything would work out, not only in her alternative lives, but also in real life. I have to say I was very disappointed with the ending. It is a book that, for me, needed to be wrapped up with a bow at the end, to give me some feeling of conclusion, but it is very open ended and just left me feeling a little dissatisfied.
