"Can't Wait to Get to Heaven," like all of Fannie Flagg's books, gets the characters of small-town life just right. This is the story of the last day in the life of Elner Shimfissle, resident "auntie" and eccentric old lady of Elmwood Springs, Missouri. I loved the chapters that describe what happens when she gets to heaven and meets her maker--makers, actually, as there are two! She even gets and answer to her lifelong burning question: which came first, the chicken or the egg? Not a must-read, but a sweet book that I'll come back to when I need a little reminder about what's really important in life.
