Publisher's Summary

The one and only Fannie Flagg, beloved author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café, Can't Wait to Get to Heaven, and I Still Dream About You, is at her hilarious and superb best in this new comic mystery novel about two women who are forced to reimagine who they are.

Mrs. Sookie Poole of Point Clear, Alabama, has just married off the last of her daughters and is looking forward to relaxing and perhaps traveling with her husband, Earle. The only thing left to contend with is her mother, the formidable Lenore Simmons Krackenberry. Lenore may be a lot of fun for other people, but is, for the most part, an overbearing presence for her daughter. Then one day, quite by accident, Sookie discovers a secret about her mother's past that knocks her for a loop and suddenly calls into question everything she ever thought she knew about herself, her family, and her future.

Sookie begins a search for answers that takes her to California, the Midwest, and back in time, to the 1940s, when an irrepressible woman named Fritzi takes on the job of running her family's filling station. Soon truck drivers are changing their routes to fill up at the All-Girl Filling Station. Then, Fritzi sees an opportunity for an even more groundbreaking adventure. As Sookie learns about the adventures of the girls at the All-Girl Filling Station, she finds herself with new inspiration for her own life.

Fabulous, fun-filled, spanning decades and generations, and centered on a little-known aspect of America's 20th-century story, The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion is another irresistible audiobook by the remarkable Fannie Flagg.

    "Looking for Light Reading?"

    Great Picture of the South and it's women. While it is light reading we get a look at the women of the South today and and the women who stood strong in WWII. I did think the use of the words 'gal' and 'pal' were way over done but that's a minor thing. I enjoyed Sookie and her journey to find her 'real self''. Normally I have found that an author doing their own narrating to be boring or grating on the ears but Miss Fannie was outstanding! So if you are going on vacation this is a great one to take with you.

    Story
    "Too slanted"

    It was a little bit too glowing, especially on Ted Kennedy. More emphasis should've been put on the destruction left in his wake. I thought it was a little odd to put Ted Kennedy's last wife in so much, as she has nothing to do with what The Americans today consider the Kennedy mystique. That all centered around the fact that JFK was president and RFK was assassinated Ted Kennedy was a disappointment and Victoria is insignificant. You added quite a bit about her. I found that part boring.
    The first half of the book was very good the rest not so much

    "I just love this book"

    I first found out about the WASPs about 20 years ago from a customer of our print shop who WAS ONE!. These women were something and I think Fannie really captured their spirit in this wonderful book.

    "This was an amazing book!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved all of the characters, the storyline, and the simple southern charm. Parts of it were laugh out loud funny. I read the book and listened to it within a short period of time. I had a hard time putting the book down & that’s saying a lot since I don’t normally like to read. The narration was excellent. Fannie Flagg quickly became one of my favorite authors.

    "Fun!"

    This was my first Fanny Flagg and I must say I am now a fan! Great story and performance. I laughed out loud several times and I particularly enjoyed the way Flagg presented Eleanor. I also loved the accents and phrases, especially the southern ones. I also appreciated the historical aspect and learning about the WASPS. My only qualm was there was too much taking the Lord's name in vain. I'm not usually bothered by it but there was just so much of it here that it got to me. Overall a great, fun read.

    "Fannie’s Fantastic! "

    Thank you Fannie Flagg for reading your books! No one could do it better! We all need to be reminded that the history of the USA is tough and far from perfect but it includes wonderful times when Americans came together united with pride behind a common purpose. Thank you for including the story of the women of the Wasps. Completely entertaining and inspirational!

    "Too delightful. Rejoice in being southern."

    Fannie Flag's novel is a wonderful laugh-out-loud narrative. Heart warming, historically accurate, and such an enjoyable read. Being a southerner, I relished in the dialogue and attitudes, so true to form. "Gosh dern, why does it have to be over, Fannie"??!!! And God bless the Polish.

    "Wonderful!"

    This book was so good that I dropped everything to finish listening to it. As usual, Fannie Flagg was spot on with the narration, making all of her characters come to life. The book was funny and entertaining and incredibly sad. I was happy/sad bawling under the covers with my headphones on, trying not to wake my husband by the end. The WASPs were an incredibly heroic group of ladies that you never hear about. After finishing the book I was moved to find out as much as I could about them.
