I have adored Sarah Bird since I read _The Boyfriend School_ wayyyy back when I was in college. In this NOT-A-ROMANCE, bullshit artist, caterer, and taken-to-the-cleaners-by-her-rich-ex-inlaws divorcee Blythe Young is hitting bottom. After she intentionally drugs her socialite "friends" at a party she is catering for, she finds herself on the run--from them, her creditors, the employees she's stiffed, and the IRS. Her last refuge is the hippie boarding house she lived in during her college days at UT-Austin. Her one true friend is there--as are, as it turns out, the employees she's stiffed. Blythe works hard toward her unlikely redemption with many setbacks on the way, and without totally losing the con artist center of her character. This book was, like most Bird offerings, hilarious in parts and touching in others. Two thumbs up.
