PRETTY IS AS PRETTY DOES
In this fun start to the new Class Reunions series, Mayne manages to keep the story light while delving into issues of family, friendship, identity and beauty. It’s a delightful tale that will leave readers anxious for the next installment.
Priscilla Slater has made something from her life after high school: She is a successful hairdresser with a chain of three salons. Yet, in the eyes of her mother and former classmates, she has definitely not lived up to her “most likely to succeed” title. With their 10th reunion approaching, Priscilla is called upon to extend friendship, makeover skills and a bit of diplomacy to help things come together for all. (ABINGDON, Jun., 306 pp., $14.99)
