Publisher Comments:

In a smart, sexy, wickedly funny new novel, the acclaimed author of Right Before Your Eyes introduces an unforgettable and irresistibly real heroine: Michaela“Mike” Edwards, a woman who is forced to reinvent herself— and discovers that the biggest risk is not taking one at all….

Fiercely independent and seriously lacking in social graces, Mike Edwards doesn’t do sugar and spice. Instead she writes great copy and stays above the fray—until mishandled office politics get her unexpectedly fired. Suddenly the young ad hotshot finds herself doing the unimaginable: moving back in with her widowed father, hiding from her lecherous mentor, rethinking her entire career—and trying to unravel complex feelings for her best guy pal, an Aussie journalist named Gunther.

For Mike, a few wrenching twists of fate are leading to a job she never expected: teaching “life skills” to seventh-grade girls. But sometimes the best makeovers are the ones you never see coming. Because with a classroom full of kids who need her, a best friend who’s fast becoming something more, and a family she’s only just discovering, Mike has a few surprises in store…and she’s about to discover that going places in life doesn’t have to mean going it on your own.

Synopsis:

Unexpectedly fired from her job as an ad copy writer thanks to office politics, fiercely independent Michaela "Mike" Edwards is forced to move back in with her widowed father, hide from a lecherous mentor, reassess her entire career, and come to terms with her feelings for her best guy pal, an Australian journalist. Simultaneous. 60,000 first printing.

Synopsis:

Ellen Shanman is a graduate of Northwestern University. She lives and writes in Brooklyn, New York.
