Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

A high school reunion and all of its attendant dramas is the backdrop of Berg's rose-tinted latest (after Home Safe). For Dorothy Shauman, her 40th reunion is the chance to finally hook up with her high school crush. She prepares weeks in advance for the big night, strange as that may seem, preening in front of the mirror. As Berg surveys the gamut of emotions felt by Dorothy and some of her classmates, she zeroes in on an array of stereotypes-the hot girls, the jocks, the in crowd, the out crowd-and considers what makes each one tick, offering the vanilla revelation that the person on the inside doesn't always match the person on the outside. It's cleanly plotted, ably written, and sure to appeal to boomers staring down the barrel of their own 40th reunions. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Berg (Home Safe) returns with another light and enjoyable read starring a variable cast. Everyone is preparing for their 40th high school reunion-the last one-and we hear from each character from their point of view. The usual high school suspects include Dorothy, the gossipy popular girl and member of an inseparable trio. Dorothy's dream is to rekindle the flames with handsome jock Pete Decker. But Pete's life is a mess; he thought that leaving his high school sweetheart and wife, Nora, for an incredibly young, incredibly hot woman was smart-until he learned that Sandy was also incredibly vacant. Nora attending the reunion with her new boyfriend isn't making things easier. And what about the golden girl, the beautiful Candy Sullivan-will she still be as beautiful? And that complete weirdo who everyone teased mercilessly, Mary Alice-is she still such a disaster? And Lester, the geeky smart guy? The geek has morphed into a catch-a single one to boot. What happens when this group finally walk through the hotel ballroom doors? Verdict Berg fans will enjoy the ride finding out.
