Kate Hollis' ex-boyfriend's face plasters newsstands and TV, the Internet, and the multiplex. Jake Sharpe is one of the biggest recording stars on the planet, and every song he's famous for is about Kate. For over a decade his soundtrack has chased her - from the gym to the supermarket, from the dentist's office to the bars.

Now, 30-year-old Kate gets the call that Jake has finally landed back in their Vermont hometown for an MTV special. The moment she has been waiting for has arrived.

On the eve of their prom, Jake Sharpe vanished, resurfacing when his song Losing - about his and Kate's first sexual experience - shot to the top of the Billboard charts. And the hits kept coming, each more personal than the one before.

Now Kate gets her chance to confront Jake and reclaim her past. But after 11 years of enduring protracted and far-from-private heartbreak, everyone in Kate's life has a stake in how this plays out. Kate must risk betraying the friends Jake abandoned, the bandmates whose songs he plundered, and her own parents, who fear this will dredge up a shared past more painful than any of them want to acknowledge. But after getting the call in the dead of night and jumping on a plane, can she turn back now?

Newsweek dubbed The Nanny Diaries a national phenomenon and the New Republic proclaimed, Thank God for Citizen Girl. Now McLaughlin and Kraus have written a poignant, humorous tale about modern celebrity obsession and coming of age during the divorce boom. With flawless depictions of the 1980s, a charismatic heroine, and their signature biting wit, the authors offer up another lively and hilarious tale of a smart young woman looking for satisfaction in the chaos of contemporary culture.

    " I stuck it out through the end, but I just couldn't respect the character. Dreadful. "

    " Well, I have to say that I really liked this book. Maybe because I grew up in VT and that is where it is set, or maybe because I amcurrently obsessed with books taking place during highschool- you will have to read it and find out for yourself! "

    " This was bad, man. I thought the whole thing was so farfetched, and I just wanted all these people to get over freakin' high school! As a funny aside, Saadia said this book was a good argument in favor of homeschooling (lol, Miriam) because of these adults' ridiculous obsession with people and events from high school. Don't people move on? Weren't there any college sweethearts? Friends? Basically, the whole thing was just so unbelievable, the characterization and dialogue mediocre, etc. These chicks should have stopped after "The Nanny Diaries." "
