Hope in A JarBook - 2009 | 1st ed.
Twenty years ago, Allie Denty was the pretty one and her best friend Olivia Pelham was the smart one . Throughout high school, they were inseparable... until a vicious rumor about Olivia- a rumor too close to the truth-ended their friendship.Now, on the eve of their twentieth high school reunion, Allie, a temp worker, finds herself suddenly single, a little chubby, and feeling old. Olivia, a cool and successful magazine beauty editor in New York, realizes she's lonely, and is finally ready to face her demons.Sometimes hope lives in the future; sometimes it comes from the past; and sometimes, when every stupid thing goes wrong, it comes from a prettily packaged jar filled with scented cream and promises.Beth Harbison has done it again. A hilarious and touching novel about friendship, Love's Baby Soft perfume, Watermelon Lip Smackers, bad run-ins with Sun-In, and the healing power of "Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific." Hope in a Jar : we all need it.
