Is there a career track that will rid my apartment of my competitive brothers, and a father who's exploring his metrosexuality? Or present my old college crush from marrying the mistake of his life? Or get me through a year of flash mobs, karaoke bars, and Greek weddings? Of maybe, just maybe, help me attract the attention of the department store heir of my dreams?
Nan's career as a "Cheer Facilitator" for Seasonal Staffers, Inc., leaves something to be desired. Her previous boyfriend turned out to be a self-centered lothario, and the man she has worshiped from afar since college just announced his "pre-engagement" to another woman. Then Nan's friends and fellow members of the Elizabethan Failures Society, who have been listening to her for years, tell her to stop whining and do something about her unhappiness. So when Colm Iverson, artist and department-store heir, walks into her life, Nan realizes it really is up to her to keep him from walking back out.
Neale's addictively acerbic writing style and endearing heroine make for a deliciously humorous book that is a natural for Bridget Jones fans. Yet Nan's realistically complicated relationships with her family and friends add emotional depth, granting Neale's novel an appeal that reaches beyond the chick-lit crowd.
I really liked this. Will probably look for more by her.
Claims to be like Bridget Jones, but it isn't the same.
I love this book. It is one of the few that actually makes me laugh out loud. I think I have read it about a hundred times. I highly suggest you read this book too!
Hip,sassy, and filled with offbeat characters who will steal your heart.
