Publisher's Summary

When Glamour Day comes to the Klip-N-Kurl beauty parlor in tiny Lovettsville, Virginia, Tallie Brock sees her ticket to Hollywood and stardom. As her mother - who was the spitting image of Natalie Wood - used to say, "The sky's the limit."While jotting down observations in her Rulebook for Living (such as "Women with fat faces shouldn't wear bangs" and "Beetles signify change"), Tallie finds herself changing in unexpected ways - as she tests the limits of trust, explores her growing attraction to a boy from a family as rich as her imagination, and reaches for the sky like she has never done before.By turns funny and tender, joyous and poignant, best-selling author Anne LeClaire has written a winning, stylish novel of small-town Southern life - and what it means to be a mother, daughter, best friend, wife, and lover.


What the Critics Say

"Saturated with death and loss yet bursting with life, [this is] a beautiful, reflective meditation on friendship in its many guises." (Booklist)
"Reader Pamela Steele hits the mark, bringing such life and believability to her portrayals of characters and their emotions that each soon becomes someone we all know." (AudioFile)
