The second novel from the New York Times bestselling author of If You Were Here takes us back to the hair metal 80s.

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 out of 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?

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Courtney | 2/20/2014

    " Don't read this assuming you are in for an intellectual masterpiece; instead, read it for the fluffy mindless goodness that it is. It has everything I enjoy - humor, time travel, and the 90's. It also has things I hate, such as cardboard cutout characters, cliches, characters you love to hate, and even some abhorrently bad writing, but it is what it intended to be - light, fun read. I enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany Warner | 2/20/2014

    " I loved this book! funny, inspiring and brilliant. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gail Williams | 1/21/2014

    " i would not recommend this book unless you are a big fan of disney movies gone bad for tweens. It is a predictable story which a woman that goes through a time warp in the hopes of changing her life outcome in the present/future....ever heard of this story before? or something similar to it? PASS...............not a good read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keena | 1/11/2014

    " Fun and frivilous. Complete escape. Not as predictable as thought it would be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 1/10/2014

    " As light and frothy as an eighties bubblegum pop song and just as fun. Would I want to go back to high school? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine Grant | 1/5/2014

    " I loved this book. I love most of Jen Lancaster's books. I didn't like her first novel as much as her memoirs and was afraid that this would disappoint as well. I couldn't have been more wrong. "Here I Go Again" is entertaining, funny, and a real page turner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 1/4/2014

    " This was an unexpected novel from Jen Lancaster and it feels like it involves a bit of a break from her real life personality, which tends to infiltrate her fiction. I really enjoyed it and found myself fascinated with the time travel principles without rolling my eyes. Which rarely happens with me and time travel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kris Patrick | 12/20/2013

    " I decided to give Jen Lancaster a second chance after reading multiple positive reviews on this title. I'm not a fan of her humor essay writing. I read that genre ad nauseum so it wasn't as if I had no one to compare her to... Fiction writing suits J. Lancaster much better. Wasn't thrilled to encounter a time travel element shortly after getting sucked into the first couple chapters because I typically can't stand anything with a fantastical element (though I did very much like Time Traveler's Wife, but I digress). Read a like a margarita... tasted delicious, provided a short period of escape, left you wanting more :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 chrisa | 12/7/2013

    " I enjoyed this book even if the main character's thought processes at times remained a mystery, even after she was 'good'. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 12/6/2013

    " This was funny but not Lancaster's best "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shana | 12/3/2013

    " Lord knows I love Jen Lancaster and would totally stalk her in Whole Foods if I happened to also live in the Chicago suburbs. Here I go again was a good, entertaining, light read - just not one of my favorites of hers. Her memoirs hit a more personal note for me ... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lorraine | 12/2/2013

    " A fun fast read. A sweet story that has good moral to the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kara | 11/25/2013

    " Loved every second of it! And it takes place in Chicago and makes suburbian references which I loved! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda Smith | 11/15/2013

    " Jen Lancaster is one of my favorite authors, but I must say I prefer her memoirs to her fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lyndsay | 11/13/2013

    " Much closer to a 2.5 but I love Jen Lancaster so I gave it a 3. I wanted to punch the main character a lot and didn't empathize with her at all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Connie Pollock | 10/14/2013

    " All hail the queen of snark! Great story, love Jen's memoirs but so happy that she's started writing fiction. Can't wait for the next book. Love the premise - understanding that sometimes the best in life is seeing other people's happiness when you know they deserved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 9/23/2013

    " I thought this book was fun and entertaining to read. It moved along at a good pace without getting stale. I would recommend it to others "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/17/2013

    " very quick read which i enjoyed tremendously..it reminded me of one of my favorite movies...13 going on 30!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana M. | 9/2/2013

    " Her memoirs are better than her fiction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Millyha | 8/25/2013

    " Fun, cute chick lit. Bubblegum for the brain. Exactly what the doctor ordered. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Heather Fox | 7/31/2013

    " On page 33 and not sure I can stomach another page. I am either totally done with high school ( okay yes done with high school) or it is not a good time for me to read this book. Calling it quits. I'm sure it is a good book, but I will take your word for it and move on to something else... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Klossner | 6/4/2013

    " Lived, loved, loved it! Thank you Jen for reminding me again why you are my favorite author! "

    " Fun, light and quick read. Perfect summer beach book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 3/4/2013

    " If you're looking for an easy read without much depth, this is a great book for that. I prefer Jenn Lancaster's memoirs much more then her forays into novels, but this one was much better then her first ("If You Were Here.") "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 2/3/2013

    " Okay, I finished. I have to say that I liked the book but I never really warmed up to Lissy. I liked the fact that she grew from the mean girl she was in high school, but still not my favorite character ever. "
