Kristan gives you lots of giggles and laughs through the book. I enjoy it and recommend it.

Nora Stuart escaped Scupper Island, Maine with a prized full-ride scholarship when she graduated from high school. She also left behind the fat, unhappy, smart girl and transformed herself into an educated, accomplished woman with a great job, doctor boyfriend, and loyal friends. When she's hit by the Beantown Bug Killer van crossing a street, she returns to Main to recuperate and is suddenly 17 and miserable again. Higgins creates a fast-moving plot, memorable characters, and uses both quirky and snarky humor to write a story that illustrates we can overcome our high school selves. Laugh-out-loud scenes include an ill-fated matchmaking dinner party that Nora throws for her mother, the portrayal of her high school nemeses, the Cheetos, and masquerading as her mother on an online dating site.

Good story line but not her best book. i still read it in a couple days since you do want to see
what happens to Nora.
She's one of my favorite authors.

A good story but this isn't like Higgins' usual stories. This book is a bit darker and moodier than her others. Still a great read!

Good read,a little long with some heart ache but ends well. I enjoyed the feeling you get when someone works hard and reaps the benefits even though they weren't part of the in crowd in high school.

I've been on a Kristan Higgins binge, and this wasn't her best effort. Although I like the ending, it felt like work getting there.

Highly entertaining book that includes the life of a teenager that doesn't fit in with her classmates. After becoming a successful doctor she returns home for a respite after several life changing incidents in her somewhat perfect life. She begins to question many things in her life and how she got to where she is in life. Interesting characters that keep you interested in finding out the outcome in her life and those around her.

This was a highly entertaining tale of self-discovery. Higgins continually offers entertaining reads with lots of meat on them.
