Readers debated whether Allison Pearson's debut I Don't Know How She Does It was a more nuanced Bridget Jones or something wonderfully different, but there will be no dispute that this UK-based novelist proves her worth in this fiction. Its catalyst is an undelivered letter that 13-year-old Petra's mother intercepted in the mid-seventies. Unbeknownst to her, this star-struck teenager had won a prize to fly to America to meet her idol, singer David Cassidy. When, twenty-five years later, she discovers the notification in a closet, she seizes the opportunity to claim her long overdue reward. I Think I Love You can be read as a telling look on how much we change and, at the same time, how far we can go forward by looking back.
