Bet Me tells the story of Min Dobbs and Calvin Morrisey. What do you do when the man of your dreams is not the man of your dreams at all? What do you do if you learn that he only went out with you to win a bet, and has a hit-and-run history of girlfriends? Hilarity, wonderful shoes, and fairy tale romance all mix with families-from-hell and ill-chosen diets in this Crusie book.

Bet Me was a bit of a refreshing read, as it takes on the self-conscious challenge of being a zaftig girl in a world that isn't quite fond of people of that shape. Furthermore, it detailed the funny parts of beginning courtship, poked fun at the psychology profession, and the different sorts of lifestyles that people choose to live with.

Oh, yes: it also highlighted the genius that is Elvis Presley and Elvis Costello.

All in all? Great fun.
