Friday Books: The All-Girl Filling Station

The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion by Fannie Flagg

A 60 year-old woman discovers a secret about herself that rocks her world. She takes a look at herself from childhood on up and re-discovers herself. Meanwhile it switches between the past and present with a parallel story (of course, the stories merge in the end). It is quite humorous; I giggled often. The ending dragged a little; otherwise it was a good read and an interesting look at women's lives from the 40s to present day.

Went straight to Goodreads to put it on my wish list.

I remember Fannie Flagg from her "Candid Camera" days ( THAT really dates me, doesn't it?). When she first began to write novels I was pleasantly surprised to find it was the same person! Love, love, love her books.
