Book Blurb: “When Piper James unexpectedly gets a message from her insanely hot teenage crush Rob Kingsford, inviting her to their school reunion, her heart flips. She hasn’t seen Rob in eight years – and he’s always been the one who got away.
Throw in some old friends (and frenemies), a sister on the edge of a meltdown and a few too many cosmos and you have all the ingredients for a real night to remember… Will Piper and Rob finally get together, the second time around?
A hilarious and uplifting story about conquering your demons and being true to who you are – perfect for fans of Mhairi McFarlane, Colleen Coleman and Joanna Bolouri.”

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!
