The Last Time I Saw You by Elizabeth Berg
Elizabeth Berg is always entertaining. This book is about a 40th high school reunion and it follows four main characters. We hear what they are anticipating, what happens leading up to the reunion and then the actual reunion itself. It was interesting that it was a 40th reunion. People are way past the anxities of high school (or should be). There is a scene where they all sit down and actually discuss their real feelings from high school. During this scene the following was said...
"So many people go to reunions thinking they can change what happened to them. That the person you've become might erase the person you were then. But of course that doesn't happen. In some respects this reunion has shown me that it's not that you can't go home again; it's that you can never leave."
4 Stars (Rated R for brief sex talk and a sprinkling of f-bombs)
