Abbey Garner has a plan: to earn a million dollars by the time she's thirty-five. Financial independence will allow her to break the cycle of unhappiness endured by the women in her family. Determined to fulfill her dream, Abbey works at Granny Po's struggling beauty shop, where the feisty Gray Widows go to primp, polish, perm . . . and, of course, gossip. There, among the hair dryers and perm rods--and with the help of a new friend--Abbey finds the courage to open her heart and take risks required for her to live life to its fullest.Debut author Laura Bowers creates a funny and touching first novel about family--both the one we are born to and the one we create ourselves.

Review quote

* "It's the multigenerational friendships-the feisty, sniping conversation with Granny Po and her close circle of friends, The Widows, ' brim with humor-that make Bowers's first novel a delight." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
