When Ada Howard receives an announcement of her twenty-five-year college reunion, signed with a wink by an old flame, she starts taking stock of her life, her marriage, and the hundred or so pounds she's gained since her college days, and decides it's high time for a health and beauty revival. So she starts laying down some rules. The first rule: Don't Keep Doing What You've Always Been Doing. And so begins a long journey toward a new look and a new perspective-on what Ada wants, and on what she's always had.
