Description:

Priscilla Slater goes to her ten-year high school reunion with equal parts dread and eager anticipation. Even though she s a successful owner of a chain of hair salons and no longer has the mousy brown hair, crooked teeth, and discount-store wardrobe, she still feels like the ugly duckling. But when she arrives at the reunion, Priscilla soon realizes that her old classmates aren t exactly as she remembers them. With humor and a just a touch of sassiness, Priscilla finds herself facing her own truth and she may be surprised at what she discovers.

My Thoughts: 

This was an interesting story that follows the story of four people.  Priscilla Slater who is the main character voted Most Likely to Succeed,  Tim Pucket who has a huge crush on Priscilla, and ends up her date to the reunion, Laura Moss who is running the reunion and preparty and in way over head, then there is Trudy Baynard who is beauty queen pagenant winner and prom queen who's fallin apart after her divorce to Michael Baynard who is dating whatever flavor comes along.

What we learn in this book is that everyone is not what Priscilla remembers she tries to be nice, but her classmates are a class unto themselves.  They all seem to have issues of some sort to jealousy all the way to alcoholic issues.  It's a great look into reunions and how they aren't always what they appear to be.  That people sometimes lie to make themselves look better than they really are!
