A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "Good story with some laugh-out-loud parts."

This is a light and enjoyable read. I loved that the main character, Melanie, is a metal sculptor. The descriptions of her sculptures and her ideas of what to do with the various things she comes across in her life -- these are my favourite parts of the novel. Best friend themes are also present in Claire Cook's books, and she portrays them well. A very pleasant read.

High school reunions are like a test for personal success and I’ll slide right off the bell curve. I’m not famous, I didn’t turn into a knockout, my husband left me.

Whenever I reached for our shared popcorn, Finn reached in, too, and our hands brushed. When he put his arm around me, all I could think of was that if he got butter on my sister’s sweater, she’d know I’d borrowed it while she was away at college, and she’d kill me.
