I'd bought this book a long time ago, and just now gotten around to reading it. Once I picked it up, I finished it in the same day. It was very engrossing and funny.

Parker Grey is very relatable, for a habitual liar. She's having an existential crisis, and has given up playing the guitar. She's in love with a TV actor whom she's never met, but that's a minor detail. If I had a dollar for every fan of "The Office" in love with John Krasinski, I'd be a rich girl. She's just searching for inspirati

I absolutely fell into this book. I picked it up yesterday and read the whole book yesterday. It was only 230+ pages but it captured me. It is a very light hearted read with a typical story book ending. It was nice to read something that was light and not very deep.

All I can say is that, PARKER GREY is I think a perfect description of me.haha! that's right she's like someone that I can relate to myself. I mean we all lie, we all fantasies Celebrities, we all dreamed of being rich, like we slip fingers trough drawers. but what's weirder is that I don't know but Oh God at first I thought I am the only person on earth whose referring or engaging real life happenings to TV series like what she did when she had that situation of Lil being kidnap and she kinda r ...more

Bought this for two bucks at Half Priced Books solely for the reference to the TV show "La Femme Nikita". Got cheated out of $1.99.

Self absorbed woman who "loses herself" and steps away from her life as a musician to live a shallow life in New York City with shallow friends who live rent-free in massive lofts and giggle as they rip off a plasma screen from their equally shallow neighbor. Even the references to La Femme Nikita are shallow.

Problem solved at the end when our heroine discovers her

im not new to books like these. but there is something about this book that got me feeling as if im not really well informed about how ugly the wold can get. i was "bitch slapped". i cant find another term to exactly express what i felt while reading it. anyway, the narrator was so vulgar. not that im not used to profanity or anything, because i am used to it. its just that there is something off about the narrator. she actually feels like a psycho to me.but setting that aside, it was good.

This one gets three stars only because it was the right book at the right time. Otherwise, definitely two (possibly two and a half)stars. It wasn't a literary masterpiece by any means, the plot was somewhat tired, and you could guess what would happen next with every page. That being said, I was in a place where I needed a "sitcom" style book, one that I didn't really have to think about much and this fit the bill perfectly. There were some humorous points and the main character was interesting ...more

Everytime I read this book I see it as a movie in my head. A great story about someone losing herself and then finding her way back, quite simple really, but when told by the right person it's fabulous. Like a Bonnie Cashin pocket skirt!

I grew up on the mean streets of Upper Saddle River, New Jersey. I was the oldest of four siblings, the younger three all adopted from Korea (and incidentally, all three were terrible at math thus debunking the 'brilliant Asian' stereotype). My other siblings included my older, Jackson Browne loving step-sister, Stacie and Becky the Runaway, who sought refuge after nearly being sexually assaulted ...more
