When Moxie Brecker chose her kicky nickname back in college, it suited her perfectly. But now she feels it's one big misnomer. After graduation, she set out to command her own seventh-grade science class and was stunned to find the job too challenging. She didn't have the energy necessary to get a roomful of pre-teens excited about atoms, and she never felt like herself, s ...more

When I picked up this novel I expected it to be some light, chick lit reading. It was light, it was quick, but there was an underlying plot that the author did not want to giveaway and therefore the mystery of what the point of the novel was remained a mystery until about 80% through, though the reader (me) knew there was something going on.

Plot: Former teacher Moxie leaves because she’s depressed and starts peddling panties, hence the title of the book. She really could have worked anywhere, bu

This book is a snooze-fest. The first ever book that took me so long to finish.

It was really, really boring (no offense to the author). INCREDIBLY BOOOOORING! It is the kind of book that will make you sleep and when you wake up, you will not be able to remember what's it about. Although the cover and the chapter names are cute but it doesn't make up for the dull story. It is pointless. There is not even a climactic part. It is not even a comedy or a humorous book. I don't really get the point of

Rebecca Brecker alias Becky alias Bex memang suka gonta-ganti nama. Tapi saat melihat iklan minuman Moxie, ia tahu itulah nama yang tepat. "Moxie" mengesankan sosok yang energik dan percaya diri persis seperti yang Moxie butuhkan. Hidup pun berjalan lancar, atau setidaknya begitu untuk sementara. Lalu segalanya berantakan.

Tanpa alasan, Moxie tiba-tiba merasa cepat lelah dan mudah sedih. Ia pun memutuskan berganti pekerjaan, menjadi pramuniaga toko lingerie. Di antara tugas menyortir dan melipat

Moxie Brecker semula seorang guru, tapi ngerasa ga mampu membimbing muridnya, karena dy jadi sering capek, ngerasa tertekan, lemah lesu dll.
Akhirnya memutuskan bekerja di tempat yang ga butuh "otak", sebagai asisten manajer di toko lingerie.
Meskipun begitu, tetep aja dy ga merasa bahagia, dan konsultasi ke psikiater tetep ga membantu.
Makin lama kondisi Moxie tambah parah, sendinya sering sakit, jari2 bengkak, sering demam. Psikiaternya nganggap Moxie depresi berat dan meminta meminum obat2an yan

This is not chick lit. This is almost chick lit, but not a tale about a woman working in the publishing world or a woman in New York trying to find love. Instead, this book takes a piece of the retail industry and a piece of medical malady and combines it for a fun and sometimes serious story, woven together skillfully and interestingly.

The story was entertaining, but the writing style was difficult for me to appreciate at times. Particularly at the beginning, it seemed like the author was going overboard describing everything with tons of adjectives and other qualifiers, but I think it got better by the end. Either that, or I just got used to it.

A litle different than normal chick lit - I liked the fact that the heroine's issues were a bit uncommon and not all guy related. Plus it is always interesting to see Boston captured in fiction.

i really didn't like this book. the pacing was too slow and the romance part was what i was waiting for, and it didn't come until the last chapters of the book.
Jami
Cute and girly read a friend picked up on a discount shelf. Definitely not the best book I ever read but easy to get through.
Santy
The story is about disease and how to survive through it.
Fawn
Very slow read, and not that entertaining.
