Description


In a smart, sexy, wickedly funny new novel, the acclaimed author of Right Before Your Eyes introduces an unforgettable and irresistibly real heroine: Michaela"Mike" Edwards, a woman who is forced to reinvent herself-- and discovers that the biggest risk is not taking one at all....
"
"Fiercely independent and seriously lacking in social graces, Mike Edwards doesn't do sugar and spice. Instead she writes great copy and stays above the fray--until mishandled office politics get her unexpectedly fired. Suddenly the young ad hotshot finds herself doing the unimaginable: moving back in with her widowed father, hiding from her lecherous mentor, rethinking her entire career--and trying to unravel complex feelings for her best guy pal, an Aussie journalist named Gunther.
For Mike, a few wrenching twists of fate are leading to a job she never expected: teaching "life skills" to seventh-grade girls. But sometimes the best makeovers are the ones you never see coming. Because with a classroom full of kids who need her, a best friend who's fast becoming something more, and a family she's only just discovering, Mike has a few surprises in store...and she's about to discover that going places in life doesn't have to mean going it on your own.
