Ever wonder what happened to that ultimate mean girl from high school(or maybe junior high- junior high make me think of mean girls more than high school, but that might just be my own personal experience)?
In “Here I Go Again” Jen Lancaster offers up Lissy Ryder- ultimate mean girl… but 20 years later at high school reunion time. And her life is a mess. (Hello, karma! Thanks for showing up!)
But thanks to a concocotion a former classmate(one she tortured, of course) gives her to drink, Lissy has the chance to go back to high school and change everything. But being a mean girl at heart, it doesn’t come so easily at first. And those changes aren’t all they are cracked up to be anyway.
There is enough early 90s nostalgia to keep me laughing since I remember those from my own high school days. “Mean Girls” and “Heathers” references kept me giggling as well. Lissy thinking she could actually make fetch happen. And I totally want some of Deva’s potion to go back in time and fix some things. Though I don’t want to go back to high school.
“Here I Go Again” is a cute and funny story. I would definitely read more from Jen Lancaster.
