Of the Elmwood Springs books, this is my least favorite. It does have some good moments, but in general it doesn't hold up to the other books in the series. But, it's Fannie Flagg and she still manages to entertain enough to get me to the end of the book.

She does an okay job of describing life in small town America, but when does the story start? This is the second book I read from the Elmwood Series (probably should be read before "Welcome to the World, Baby Girl") I gave up 1/4 of the way through (even after skipping to future chapters and reading a few pages of each). I'm done with Fannie Flagg.

Read this twice. This one has to do with the lives of the residents of Elmwood. Their lives from childhood to adulthood. Highly recommend.

The characters in this book come alive and you really do care about them. For anyone who grew up in a small town, or anyone who didn't! Great vacation reading.
