Time Flies When Your Having Fun!

Would you go to your twentieth high school reunion?  Claire Cook in Time Flies explores it in this novel.  What do you remember about high school?  Are you still friends with anyone from high school?


Melanie is watching her life fall apart around her.  Kurt her husband has left her for a younger woman Crissy.  Her sons are still talking to her one is in California and the other is in Georgia.   The pluses her metal working business is going great!  She just sold her latest to a new restaurant owner in Atlanta.  Could there possibly be more to their relationship?  Or could it be that guy from high school that got away?  Her best friend Bj makes everything worth the trip.  Would you want to join them for the journey?

My Thoughts:

I liked this novel!  A great topic for a novel a high school class reunion.  The characters were the best part of this novel!  The characters are crafted with great wit and psychology.  A much of this novel is concerns coping with phobias.  Both Melanie and Bj have one.  These phobias create great conflict for this story that is great entertainment for the reader.

I have my twentieth high school reunion coming up.  I don’t know if I will go.  When I read this novel and it was also about twentieth high school reunion.  Claire often discusses how her protagonists are ageless.  The story could be about a twenty year old or a fifty year old.  The references to the play list were not any songs that were popular when I was in high school.   The references to Led Zeppelin and Black Satin didn’t really jive with me.

This is a great read!  What would be on your play list?
