Throughout our lives, every decision and action leads us down a certain path. Sometimes we’re on that same path for a while and other times the path is constantly changing. Either way, the impact is not always clear until we’ve arrived at our next choice, which is sometimes too late. In Jen Lancaster’s latest book HereI Go Again, the main character, Lissy Ryder, has the chance to undo some of her wrongs in hopes that it might make everyone’s lives a little better.
In high school, Lissy was the “mean girl” that everyone hated, but wanted to be. While she was beautiful on the outside, inside she didn’t care about anyone but herself and therefore pointed out everyone else's flaws to make herself feel better. And at her 20 year reunion, her actions finally caught up to her and her life was not turning out how she expected it to.
Through the help of an unexpected ally (and a magic concoction), Lissy is able to go back in time to make right all of her past wrongs. It might take a few tries to find out what’s most important, but in the end, Lissy finds that being happy doesn’t have to come at everyone else’s expense.
As a previous fan of Jen Lancaster’s work, I would encourage you to check out the BlogHer Book Club page for more reviews on Here I Go Again and join in on some of discussions, because I’m sure most of us can relate to some part of this book.
