Girl meets boy. Girl loses boy. Girl loses mind.
Sophie Klein walks into a bar one Friday night and her life changes. She meets James Stephens: charismatic, elusive, and with a hosiery model ex who casts a long, thin shadow over their burgeoning relationship. He’s clever, funny and shares her greatest pleasure in life – to eat and drink slightly too much and then have a little lie down. Sophie’s instinct tells her James is too good to be true – and he is.
An exploration of love, heartbreak, self-image, self-deception and lots of food. Pear-Shaped is in turns smart, laugh-out-loud funny and above all, recognizable to women everywhere.
I love these type of “girly reads” and Avon, of course, so it’s only natural I’m looking forward to this one. 🙂 The US publication date may differ from the one indicated above: the Canadian pub date is in March 2012, that’s for sure. Anyway, what’s your “waiting on” pick this week? xxx
