Peggy Sue Bodell is a pretty, buoyant mother of two recently separated from her husband. Attending her 25th high school reunion alone, she faints and wakes up to find herself once again a senior in high school in 1959. Although she appears to her classmates as a 17-year-old bobby-soxer, Peggy Sue has her adult memory and perspective, from which she is able to enjoy the delicious, if at times heartbreaking, ability to revisit the past while knowing what the future holds. Able to take chances she never took, Peggy Sue does her best to right a few wrongs, but it’s the insight she gains into her relationship with her husband-to-be that may actually do her some good-once she gets back to the present.
