My Review

This was a fun read. I really liked Piper and admired her positive outlook on life. I loved Matt, her BFF and flatmate, he was brilliant and such fantastic person to have around, encouraging her whenever she needed it.

I loved the main storyline about the school reunion. Having avoided every school reunion myself, I completely understood Piper’s reluctance to attend. Unless you were one of the popular kids, why go back and socialise with all those people you’ve managed to live without for years? I admired her decision to go and just loved how she prepared herself, I especially that ‘Power Pose’!

I also really enjoyed Piper’s work storyline with her involvement with the girl band. I especially thought the names that the company kept coming up with were eye rollingly cringey!

And what about Rob, the one that got away? Was he for real or just messing with Piper’s  head? Well, you’ll have to read the book to find out what happens!

    Enjoyed this review 🙂 The book sounds like total fun…
    Strangely enough, I’ve always thought of reunions as … a novelty and nostalgic and cool but over the past 10 years I haven’t managed to go to any reunions 😀 I guess, it’s better I didn’t… sheesh… defo some troubles to be stirred up 😀 hahaha…
