Book Review: Here I Go Again

I've been a Jen Lancaster fan for quite some time now.  I laughed out loud at her memoirs and can completely relate to her 80's references.  If I didn't know better, I'd think she is my long lost sister and we were separated at birth!

I've enjoyed Jen's foray into fiction writing and I think she outdid herself on this one.  Here I Go Again is about Lissy Ryder.  She was THE popular girl in high school but she was also THE mean girl.  Classmates of Lissy were terrorized, shamed and hurt deeply.  Even her boyfriend was a target.

She thinks she was loved by every one but the truth is that she was feared.  She does go on to lead a pretty good life, but it all falls apart one day when her bad karma comes back to bite her in the butt.  Lissy has a run in with every classmate that she's wronged at their high school reunion and after sleeping with a yak pelt, is given the opportunity to right the wrongs.

If you've ever wanted to go back in time and re-do some part of your life, you'll enjoy this book!  If you grew up in the 80's and you love Whitesnake, you'll love this book. If you already love Jen Lancaster’s writing style and wit, you probably already bought this book and are staying up late at night to read it.
