The All-Girls Filling Station's Last Reunion

My book group chose a novel by Fannie Flagg for last month: The All-Girls Filling Station's Last Reunion.  The title gave me pause and I wasn't sure what to think.  

Here's my Goodreads review:

When my book group chose this Southern novel by Fannie Flagg, I was a little apprehensive, having never heard of Flagg. This book, however, was a joy to read! I loved learning about the WASPs and the Jurdabralinski sisters. 

My only complaint is this rather consistent stereotype of dumb Southern women. It may be a reality but I'm Southern and haven't met any dumb Southern women! At least Sookie doesn't let the stereotype stop her and her journey of self-discovery is refreshing and lovely to behold.
