Jennifer Ammoscato's debut novel is the story of thirty-six year old Avery Fowler (love the name Avery!) who has just discovered that her husband doesn't love her anymore and is leaving her for his secretary - a plot kick-off that never gets old, does it?
Avery is an internet obsessed journalist, with (as in all good chick lit novels) a couple of super-supportive best girlfriends and a gay guy friend who dispense drinks and advice. Sound familiar? Yes, this book is Extreme Chick Lit very much in the Bridget Jones mould, but Avery is a twenty-first century girl, who also has an internet life coach called Clementine and doesn't sit around waiting for Mr Darcy to appear on her doorstep with red roses. If you loved the Bridget Jones books, though, I think you will adore Avery!
Ms Ammoscato's style is very sharp and witty, with SO many great lines:
"Online dating! Of course! It's like shopping on Amazon.com, but for guys. In my pyjamas. What's not to love?"
