- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2012 September #1
*Starred Review* Visibly scarred from a childhood car accident that killed her parents, smart and solitary Ruth has decided that she can't depend on anyone but herself and her young-at-heart grandmother, Rae. After a potential workplace romance goes sour, Ruth, an L.A. screenwriter, leaves her television gig and freelances for a while, helping teens write college-entrance essays and ghostwriting online dating profiles. When her pitch for a sitcom gets picked up, she ventures back to the world of television only to find that her visionâa comedy featuring a quirky Everygal and her sassy grandmaâgets derailed at every turn, from bad casting to bawdy rewrites. Weiner herself has recent experience in sitcom-land, lending realism to the plot. Ruth is a multidimensional heroine, and Weiner gives her real heart and soul (and some nifty sex scenes to boot). Ruth's relationships with her grandmother and her new studio bosses ring true, and readers will root for Ruth to get everything she ever wantedânot to settle for the next best thing. This is contemporary women's fiction at its finest. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
Jennifer Weiner is the author of ten novels, including In Her Shoes, which was made into a major motion picture, and was the co-creator and executive producer of the ABC Family sitcom State of Georgia, which ran during the summer of 2011. She lives with her family in Philadelphia.
