Here I Go Again

by Jen Lancaster

I so enjoy Jen Lancaster’s non-fiction books that I couldn’t wait to read her second novel. (I somehow missed the first one. Must rectify that.)

Lissy Ryder is the girl that everyone hates: pretty, super-popular in high school, great husband and high-paying cushy job as an adult. Then the unthinkable happens. She loses her job, her husband, all of her assets and is forced to move back in with her parents. At first she can only focus on the unfairness of it all, but then realizes that karma has returned to remind her of all the bridges she burned in the past. 

What follows could easily be the premise of a cheesy movie: a magic potion gives Lissy the chance to go back in time to high school and make up for being the bitch that she was. Lancaster’s hilarious writing, however, counters the cheesiness as Lissy struggles to learn the lessons that will make her a better adult going forward. Having read most of her memoirs, this novel really did work for me, as I could see some funny parallels between Lissy and Lancaster, herself.
