Dear Abby on Ann, from the book: "Eppie wanted to be the first violin in the school orchestra, but I was...She swore she'd marry a millionaire, but I did...in Eau Claire, she was always known as Popo's sister."
Ann on Abby: "She's just like a kid who beats a dog until somebody looks, and then starts petting it."
Jeez. The book implies that they ended their feud just in time to attend their 40th high school reunion as a huge publicity stunt. And Abby was always jealous of Ann's nose job. I am only about halfway through the book, so further scandal is forthcoming, I'm sure.
