Years ago, Melanie followed her husband, Kurt, from New England where their two young sons were thriving to the suburbs of Atlanta. She's made a life as a metal sculptor, but when Kurt leaves her, having the tools to cut up their marriage bed is small consolation. Then her best friend makes her buy a ticket to their high school reunion, and an old flame gets in touch to see if she's going. Melanie fantasizes that returning to her past might help her find her future . . . until her driving phobia resurfaces to threaten the adventure.

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.
