The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion by Fannie Flagg

Imagine one day waking up thinking you are who you seem to be, that you are 60 years old, that your mom is your mom, that you have a really WOW family background, and then with just the answering of the phone, and then opening a registered letter, YOUR whole life changes.  You are NOT who you were 60 seconds ago, you are not 60 years old, why the day you have always celebrated your birthday isn't your real birthday, and throw out the family tree you thought you were descended from.

This is what happens to Sookie, of Point Clear, Alabama.
So begins a journey of who Sookie really is, and the family she really came from - not even from Alabama, if you can believe that.

WASPS were a group of women that flew planes from one place to another during WWII, the historic value of this story is TRUE and highly interesting.

Fanny, you did a GREAT job with this one, I couldn't put it down, and when the story was over, I wanted to start it again.  Thanks!

Oh, I loved this book!  Hope you will give it a try.

PS.  PBS program American Experience has a DVD out entitled  "Fly Girls" just about the WASPS history.
