    hoisted herself up on the counter

    “Isn’t that a bit much for strolling through the vil¬lage?” I asked, eyeing her hot pink go-go boots.

    She shut the door behind her and hoisted herself up on the counter. ?? “We’re not going to the village,” Jenna replied. “I asked Daisy. They’re taking us to London.”

    I don't think they meant she literally used some sort of mechanical device, but they do mean that she lifted herself up and sat on the counter.
