Twenty years after ruling the halls of her suburban Chicago high school, Lissy Ryder doesn t understand why her glory days ended. Back then, she was worshipped beloved feared. Present day, not so much. She's been pink-slipped from her high-paying job, dumped by her husband, and kicked out of her condo. Now, at thirty-seven, she's struggling to start a business from her parents garage and sleeping under the hair-band posters in her old bedroom.
Lissy finally realizes karma is the only bitch bigger than she was. Her present is miserable because of her past. But it's not like she can go back in time and change who she was...or can she?
