In this illuminating character study, two women, best friends and polar opposites, are "looking at 40 in the rearview mirror." Narrator Susan Denaker sounds believably horrified when hearing Madonna on the "oldies" station, flabbergasted when tantric sex is suggested, and nearly speechless when asked to welcome the needle at a B&C (Botox & collagen) party. Her timing with non sequiturs could cause new laugh lines to erupt. This book is lighter than cotton candy, and just as sticky in places, but tart enough to observe that "no amount of lasering could possibly peel off the years more effectively than seeing yourself through an old lover's eyes."
