2 journalers for this copy...
When Sunny Langstein decides to pack up Florida life and move in with her boyfriend inManhattan, her big sister isn't thrilled. What modern-day twenty-four-year-old leaves her promising career, fabulous friends and perfect underground parking spot with accompanying convertible for . . . a guy?
Only, Sunny has an additional incentive: the chance to star on Party Girls, the latest reality-television show. True, she might become a national laughingstock and it pays nothing, BUT it's a job -- a job in Manhattan. She'll get to be with her boyfriend, Steve. Okay, so she can't tell anyone she isn't single -- but with freebie designer clothes, alpha-beta peels and coconut-cream pedicures to make her transformation into a made-for-TV single girl complete . . . she can't lose!
But when the show's premier plunges Sunny into a media frenzy of talk shows, tampon endorsements, TV heartthrobs and S&M toys, how long will it take for Sunny to lose track of where she ends and her alter ego, Sunny Lang the uber Fashionista Single Superstar, begins?
I just started reading this book...and I was all set to hate it - from the very first few pages. I wasn't liking the characters and I wasn't finding anything about it engaging...but I am now halfway through the book, and I'm starting to find the premise interesting, if not the characters. I think I'm going to keep on plugging through!
A great chick-lit read. One thing though, the character of the boyfriend "Steve", was very annoying...I was surprised when the author decided to have the main character, Sunny reconcile with him - he was a real tool.
I think I'll read more of this author's work!
Thanks for sending, I have enjoyed Mlynowski's previous two books. I look forward to reading this one too!
Since this has been on my shelves for over four years now, it's unlikely I'll ever get to it. I'm clearing off the shelves and listing on Bookmooch.
