A little more estrogen-laden drama than my typical read, but interesting for the insight into a trio of Southern women coming to grips with the relationship between their adult lives and their teen dreams. Enjoyed the Sewanee references, even if the author occasionally conflated Sewanee and Monteagle and obviously knew Shenanigans from the troubled award Cammack years.
Worth a read for Sewanee grads, Nashvillians, and women approaching their 40s with still lingering issues from their adolescence.

A rare good read despite the fact that there's nothing particularly new or original in the story. It's difficult to find a book in the "light yet still has enough substance to keep you listening" category, a book where the "bad" isn't bad enough to make you want to open a vein, a book that doesn't have graphic violence and sex, etc.
As the book went on, I was a little surprised at the turn it took with an increasing emphasis on Sarah's longing for her high school days, despite the fact that at 38, she's successful and still young. I didn't relate much. At my age, I certainly long for the "youth" aspect, that sense of invincibility, the feeling that the world is still wide open, still full of undiscovered adventures, but I can't imagine wanting to be the person I was at 18. Who would want to erase all the personal growth and wisdom gained in the subsequent years?
Still, enough personal growth, fun characters, good dialogue, good writing, great audio performer.
I got it free with Kindle Unlimited, but it would have been worth a credit to me.
