Product description

Review

"Weiner is coming off a year in Hollywood, and she puts the experience to excellent use in this utterly engaging story of a showrunner who, after six years of slogging, finally gets a series on the air, only to discover that her troubles are only beginning—meddling studio execs, egomaniacal actors and one crushable but unobtainable boss." — Time

"Spares no bon mot in exposing Hollywood’s sexism, ageism and incurable penchant for extravagant silliness." — Kirkus

"Full of warm and interesting characters as well as a wealth of insider industry detail (Weiner was a cocreator of an ABC Family sitcom), this is a must-read for Weiner’s many fans and anyone who enjoys smart, funny fiction." — Library Journal



"An entertaining story about the dream-crushing compromises on the road from page to screen." —People


“A knockout. Perfect comic timing meets effortless dialogue and an engaging plot…. Enjoy your place on top of the lit world, Jennifer Weiner. You've more than made it.” —The Miami Herald

"Jennifer Weiner is funny and dead-on when it comes to building a satisfying summer read.” —New York Daily News


"A fun romp that casts a sharp eye on how this town treats women." —The Hollywood Reporter

“A fascinating glimpse into the television industry…Weiner’s strong sense of comedy comes through in her characters’ witty banter and Ruth’s writing. You will cheer her on in her quest to find success and love.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“Weiner’s snappy new novel showcases her humor and style." — The Washington Post

“Ruth is a multidimensional heroine, and Weiner gives her real heart and soul. Readers will root for her to get everything she ever wanted—not to settle for the next best thing. This is contemporary women’s fiction at its finest.” —Booklist (starred review)

“Weiner is a chick-lit writer with chops—and she puts them to expert use in this funny, feel-good tale.” —Better Homes & Gardens

“A juicy fictional account of life behind the scenes for a female TV showrunner.” (New York Post)
