About this book

Book Summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling humorist Jill Conner Browne comes a hilarious life maintenance program designed to help women navigate our hyper-visual society's obsessions with body image, clothing, and personal appearance. Getting and keeping that Queenly Look is no small feat – a good portion of our lives is devoted to our hair, our skin tone, our figure flaws, and our clothes. Now that the first official Baby Boomer has started collecting Social Security, the Sweet Potato Queen comes to the rescue as we pursue that elusive Fountain of Youth.
