Overview

Mara Brennan is about to unravel. Three days after 28th birthday, her boyfriend dumps her, leaving her with nothing but a basement apartment, a futon, and a pile of unpaid bills. On top of that, her job, working as a receptionist at a cosmetic surgery clinic, is a nightmare, her boss is a tyrant, and her friends have gotten ahead of her in the game of life. She realizes it's time for an identity makeover and devises the OM List, a personal pathway to perfection inspired by her best friends, Olivia and Mitz. Mara hilariously tries and fails at all the things she thinks will make her the sophisticated grown-up she wants to be. Navigating the dueling worlds of yoga and cosmetic surgery, gourmet dinners and Frankenberry cereal, etiquette handbooks and too-helpful loved ones, this is an unforgettable comic debut about how to get unstuck when caught in a rut.

Ԓefreshingly realistic . . . as good as having Sunday brunch with a girlfriend.Ԡ צamp;lt;I>Winnipeg Free Press

"The National Post called author Chantel Simmons one to watch in 2007, and with warmth, humour and heart, her debut novel doesn't disappoint." - Chatelaine on the previous edition
