The second novel from the New York Times best-selling author of If You Were Here takes us back to the hair metal '80's.
Twenty years after ruling the halls of her suburban Chicago high school, Lissy Ryder doesn't understand why her glory days ended. Back then, she was worshipped...beloved...feared. Present day, not so much. She's been pink-slipped from her high-paying job, dumped by her husband and kicked out of her condo. Now, at 37, she's struggling to start a business out of her parents' garage and sleeping under the hair-band posters in her old bedroom.
Lissy finally realizes karma is the only bitch bigger than she was. Her present is miserable because of her past. But it's not like she can go back in time and change who she was...or can she?

Love Jen... but please, please don't narrate
Maybe it is a good story, maybe not... unless I buy the print version I will never really know as I couldn't listen to you Jen.
Maybe it is because the narrator of your other books was good, maybe it was you were only bad in comparison.
Hey, I have always liked your writing in the past. Maybe just spend the bucks and get a good narrator.

Only for Lancaster Fans
Probably. I love Jen Lancaster's spunk and I always get a kick out of how her snarky commentary comes through her characters.
Her non-fiction and personal stories are way better. They're much more snappy and often make me laugh aloud when listening to them.
It was a silly, lighthearted plot that was fun to listen to when I had an entire floor to tile. It was easy to follow, and I enjoyed myself. I would read this again on a rainy day for sure.
Think of this book like a made-for-tv movie: don't watch an ABC Family movie if you're looking for an A-List epic. It's got that teenage John Hughes / It's a Wonderful Life thing going on which is great if, like me, you love those random movies on the Disney Channel.
