Graciela "Ace" Jones is mad-mad at her best friend Lilly who cancels their annual trip to Panama City for mysterious reasons; at her boss Catherine for "riding her ass like a fat lady on a Rascal scooter;" at her friend Chloe's abusive husband; and especially at Mason McKenzie, the love of her life, who has shown up with a marriage proposal three years too late. Ace is never mad, though, at her near-constant companion, an adorable chiweenie dog named Buster Loo. Ace's anger begins to dissipate as she takes matters into her own hands to take down Chloe's philandering husband-and to get to the bottom of a multitude of other scandals plaguing Bugtussle, Mississippi. Then, she starts to realize that maybe Mason deserves a second chance after all. With a sharp and distinctive voice, Stephanie McAfee delivers a hilarious and fast-paced tale about Ace Jones and her two best friends-thick as thieves and tough as nails-navigating Southern small-town politics and prejudices, finding love, and standing up for each other all the way.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Carrie O'Maley | 2/18/2014

    " Really terrible chicklit. I kept reading because I wanted to know how this woman was able to successfully sell a self-published book. The answer appears to be that the masses like books written by sixth-graders. There isn't a "diary" in this book and the fact that the main character is "mad" and "fat" is hardly mentioned. The plot rambles all over the place. Horrible. DO NOT READ THIS BOOK. "
