"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Debby works wonders in creating multiple characters that we can all recognize. The first person viewpoint for each main character could have created problems, but doesn't. And it was fun getting inside different character's heads. I liked Tim from the start, so Priscilla miffed me some. After all, can't she tell when a guy is hot and has a heart of gold? Laura and Pete intrigued me, too, because I know people just like them. Both can be a pain, but inside they mean well. Everyone's knows a Celeste--a woman that goes from frump to beauty--just as we all know a Trudy--the beauty queen who seems to have it all in high school but whose life now is in shatters. Numerous other characters fill out the story, intertwining like a well-woven carpet.
Yet, it's the insights into life and into our souls that blessed me. Debby has a way of step-by-step showing us these insights and then wrapping them up in a one sentence summary where you go, "Oh, yeah, I know that." Then she puts in a couple of surprises just so we'll come back for more.
Suspense? Some, but not in the classic way. The romance stuff? Some, but not in the classic way. :) We'll all have to read that second book to find out more about that.
To sum this up in three words, I liked it! I rarely give 5's, but I'm giving one today because this was a class reunion that I actually went to! :-D Debby creates well-developed characters, a well-developed plot, and those moments when we grin and go "Aha!" If you're a chick-lit person, you'll love it.
The characters were just quirky enough to be believable. I cannot wait to read the next 2 in this series.
This series includes three books. The first book, Pretty is as Pretty Does, focuses on Priscilla, Judy, and Laura and their 10 year class reunion. It was so easy to relate to her simply because I dreaded my reunions just as much as her...which is why I never went! So much has happened to these girls (and everyone else) and they were a little embarrassed to tell others that they didn't quite live up to the expectations people had set on them in high school. They are all struggling with knowing and believing that they are more than their past.
The second book in the series, Bless Her Heart, finds Priscilla wanting to find success around the time time of her 15 year reunion. When she tries to step out in her attempts at success, she finds out that some former classmates are pulling pranks on her. Add to that a man who may be interested in her and that's enough to make her head spin!
The third book, Tickled Pink, meets up with Priscilla as she has found success and is a national celebrity. That celebrity business hasn't come without problems, though, especially when it comes to her mother.
I really enjoyed the writing of Debby Mayne. She kept me interested in each book and I didn't want to just stop at reading one of the books in the series (so I didn't)! I can't wait to see what else she decides to write in the future!
