The second novel from the "New York Times "bestselling 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 thirty-seven, 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?

Reviews

Turns out Jen Lancaster, who was already a master of memoir, is a genius at fiction. Beth Harbison, "New York Times" Bestselling Author of "Shoe Addicts Anonymous" Jen Lancaster has the kind of scathing wit that makes you wish she was your best friend but thankful she s not your new neighbor. Carrie Ryan, "New York Times "Bestselling Author of the Forest of Hands and Teeth Series"

Occasionally hilarious, Lancaster's second novel chronicles the metamorphosis of Lissy Ryder, former high school cheerleader and ruler of the mean girls. Initially assured of her own greatness, it is only after being snubbed, told off, and even pushed at her 20th high school reunion that Lissy recognizes the consequences of her lifelong cruelty. One of the classmates she tormented, now a practitioner of mysticism, sends the former queen bee back in time for a do-over. Lissy sets out to be nicer this time around but is surprised to find that she must also deal with a changing present. This book is narrated by the author, but its somewhat predictable plot might have been better served by a more expressive narrator with a larger repertoire of voices; often it is the author's word choice, rather than the way she speaks lines of dialog, that differentiates the novel's characters. VERDICT Replete with pop culture references and peppered with coarse language, this title is recommended for larger fiction collections.--Nicole -Williams, Rochelle Park P.L., NJ (c) Copyright 2013.
