The plot, in brief: A woman named Audrey Novak travels back in time, leaving the future and her septuagenarian body and returning to her seven year-old form. She has several reasons for doing this, but it would be giving away too much of the plot to enumerate those reasons. Audrey is accompanied by her coworker from the future, Bobby, a blithe little sociopath with few qualms about killing anyone or anything that interferes with his mission.
The pacing of the book is brisk, and, as with all of Sheppard's work, the humor is always spot-on and surprising. Indeed, Sheppard gets in more than a few pointed swipes at the much-vaunted "Pirates of Silicone Valley" throughout the course of the book. It should also be said that the period detail is spot-on, and whether one was alive during the seventies or not, Sheppard's attentive, deft touch will be appreciated.
The book is also written in such a way that a sequel seems almost like a foregone conclusion. Additionally it should be said that women, regardless of whether they are feminists or not, will dig the hell out Audrey, the book's kick-ass protagonist.
Audrey Novak is A VERY old lady who sends her mind back to inhabit her 7 year old body. As an Old Lady - Audrey is intrigued by bell bottom jeans, vinyl records and all kinds of other things. But the think that he likes best is having her Daddy back. Audrey is accompanied by her ex-husband Bobby. I don't write spoilers but I can say that this book took a little for me to get into it but once I did I could hardly put it down and stop reading!!!

Audrey Novak...A VERY old lady sends her mind back to inhabit her 7 year old body and Old lady Audrey is delight by bell bottom jeans, vinyl records, and having her Daddy back! She's accompanied by her ex-husband Bobby...Bobby is homicidal and freakishly weird! the two jump back in time to (wait for it) SAVE the world from evil aliens. They invent many "NEW" items and make millions by manipulating "HAPPY KITTY" computers,HK aerospace and many people along the way including Ronald Regan and Spiro Agnew!
