The Perfect Comeback of Caroline Jacobs/Matthew Dicks/216 pgs.
Caroline Jacobs is a self described wimp--she doesn't make waves, likes to remain invisible,and is highly non-confrontational. She and her tattooed, teenage daughter, Polly, hardly communicate until an action by Caroline has Polly react at school that is certain to get her suspended. Caroline's action is so out of character, that she realizes much of her behavior centers around an event that took place when she was in high school. She takes Polly with her to confront her past, which speaks to anyone who would like to right a wrong that was done to her/him in the past. It's a very fast, insightful, often humorous read. Very enjoyable!
