The one and only Fannie Flagg, beloved author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, Cant Wait to Get to Heaven, and I Still Dream About You, is at her hilarious and superb best in this new comic mystery novel about two women who are forced to reimagine who they are.
Mrs. Sookie Poole of Point Clear, Alabama, has just married off the last of her daughters and is looking forward to relaxing and perhaps traveling with her husband, Earle. The only thing left to contend with is her mother, the formidable Lenore Simmons Krackenberry. Lenore may be a lot of fun for other people, but is, for the most part, an overbearing presence for her daughter. Then one day, quite by accident, Sookie discovers a secret about her mothers past that knocks her for a loop and suddenly calls into question everything she ever thought she knew about herself, her family, and her future.
Sookie begins a search for answers that takes her to California, the Midwest, and back in time, to the 1940s, when an irrepressible woman named Fritzi takes on the job of running her familys filling station. Soon truck drivers are changing their routes to fill up at the All-Girl Filling Station. Then, Fritzi sees an opportunity for an even more groundbreaking adventure. As Sookie learns about the adventures of the girls at the All-Girl Filling Station, she finds herself with new inspiration for her own life.
Fabulous, fun-filled, spanning decades and generations, and centered on a little-known aspect of Americas twentieth-century story, The All-Girl Filling Stations Last Reunion is another irresistible novel by the remarkable Fannie Flagg.

I finished and there were parts I really enjoyed, all related to the WASPs and the Wisconsin family. But I found the main character, Sookie, so very annoying, I almost couldn't get through. She was a grown up, ungrateful, sniveling brat. And while I know Lenore was to be painted as a narcissist, this was also a bit over the top. Then there were people and topics introduced that had potential to be meaningful, but left me wondering why it was even the story: the therapist, the gay topic in the last 4 pages, the patented business. Most importantly missing for me was more about the other sisters. I think the quick representation and ever so brief discussion of them was a disservice to the story line. ( )

This is a fantastic book - history, relationships, suspense, pain, hilarity, tear-duct-bursting feelings - amazing. ( )

This book was the light and somewhat funny account of a woman discovering her true background. It was an easy read, and I learned a little something. Perfect for me right now! ( )

The "all-girls filling station" turns out not to be the main point of this big-hearted novel, which is actually two stories in one -- discovering who you are and what it means, juxtaposed with a loving tribute to the WASP flyers of WWII. ( )

Listened to this one on audiobook. Fannie Flagg narrates and goodness is she ever a delight! Such a fun book. I had a great time with this one. I can't wait to listen to more of her novels! ( )
