Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke have been best friends for twenty-five years and survived high school and college together. Liz lives in San Diego with her husband and two children. Lisa, a former talk show producer, now lives in Chicago with her husband, daughter, and two bonus children.
Kate is a 35-year-old social media obsessed woman, who, after being jilted at her rehearsal dinner, discovers she can change her life by what she writes in her Facebook status. Heartbroken and confused over why she was left, she wishes to go back in time--to before her fiance Max, broke things off-- so she can try to save their relationship. Because it turns out, the reason Max ended their engagement has a lot to do with Kate's close friend and co-worker, Courtney. Kate, with all of the power at her finger tips, continuously writes status updates to try keep them apart, but for reasons she doesn't understand, she ends up pushing them together over and over again. And she starts to wonder if it's even possible to literally re-write fate.
There will be a book signing following the program with books provided by Lake Forest Book Store.
