9780590335799: High School Reunion
From Publishers Weekly:

Five good friends meet for a high school reunion a year after graduation, and find that their lives and dreams are drastically altered. Jordan, an actress, returns from New York, unemployed and on speed; her best friend Sue is pregnant by Jordan's ex-boyfriend, Graham; Leigh discovers that she isn't the dumb bumbler her parents have made her out to be, and has a new dream in college; and Scooter, a would-be rock star, drives a delivery truck. In a soap opera round of events, Jordan tries to get Graham back, unaware that he plans to marry Sue; Leigh and Scooter fall in love; and Jordan overdoses on drugs. But the friends stick together, pull Jordan out of her slump, and the reunion ends on a high note. This is light readingthe characters are limited by each other, since there is almost no interaction outside the group. None of them have met any new friends, or grown up in any way, or shed new (deeper) light on the relationships. Still, the book is involving, if a little melodramatic, and Stanley handles the characterizations well.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-9 Five high-school friends return home for their first-year class reunion. Jordan has spent the year (unsuccessfuly) trying to become an actress in New York City. Before she left, she ditched her high-school boyfriend, Graham. Now Graham has come to the reunion paired up with Sue, another old classmate. Jordan spends the reunion week trying to win back Graham, and when she finds out that Sue is pregnant with Graham's child, she takes an overdose of pills. She recovers, but doesn't accept the fact that Graham isn't coming back to her. The plot is shallow and predictable. Characters are stereotypes; minor characters aren't developed; and adults are not characterized at all. This is definitely ``sub-literature.''Bonnie L. Raasch, C. B.
