When her husband is offered a post at a small northwestern university, Maye Roberts is only too happy to pack up and leave the relentless Phoenix heat for the lush green quietude of Spaulding, Washington. While she loves the odd little town, there is one thing she didn't anticipate: just how heartbreaking it would be to leave her Phoenix friends behind. And when you're a childless 30-something freelance writer who works at home, making new friends can be quite a challenge.

After a series of false starts nearly gets her banished from the town, Maye decides that her last chance to connect with her new neighbors is to enter the annual Sewer Pipe Queen Pageant, a kooky but dead-serious local tradition open to contestants of all ages and genders. Aided by a deranged former pageant queen with one eyebrow, Maye doesn't just make a splash; she uncovers a sinister mystery that has haunted the town for decades. Download and start listening now!

    " ngee disappointing. soobrang haba ng similes leche. may spontaneous combustion pa ewan. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jackie | 2/1/2014

    " I got this book thinking it would be a funny, funny time. It may well be...if i could have gotten past the over done humor in the first chapter. It seemed to me the author was trying too hard, too often to make me laugh. I did not finish it and gave it away. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kerry | 1/25/2014

    " Very light read. This was the July read for my new bookclub. Sorry to say it was one I voted to read cause I probably would not have finished it if I hadn't committed. The story of a woman trying to make friends in a new city...it does have a some redeeming value in the friendship she gives to an older woman. Read this only if you have nothing better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ramani | 1/23/2014

    " Totally hilarious. A quick and fun read. I laughed and cried. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allyson | 1/17/2014

    " I don't know why I liked this book so much. The story was kinda dorky, the characters were so-so and it was an easy read. I think because I didn't have to think to read it, or figure anything out, it was enjoyable. Can't wait to read another one of hers! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jayanne | 1/1/2014

    " Very funny. I enjoy her non-fiction, but this is my favorite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kylie | 12/17/2013

    " Good book. Light and funny. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kari Sweeney | 11/23/2013

    " It was a funny little read but I like her other books better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jonnell Simpson | 11/8/2013

    " I've read everything by Laurie Notaro and I love her. This is her first fiction novel and I'm really looking forward to reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tessa49 | 9/12/2013

    " Loved this book! I wasn't sure at first, but it made me laugh a lot!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Montrudd | 9/2/2013

    " This is one of the funniest books ever! I was hesitant to read fiction by her (her other books are so funny! why fiction?) but was not disappointed when I read this. The title alone was a big draw. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 8/6/2013

    " The story was a little contrived but Notaro's descriptions are long on adjectives and leave little to the imagination. This is the first book that I've read of hers but I'll probably read at least one more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon Giesfeldt | 7/29/2013

    " If you think her imagination runs wild in her real life- read her fictional books- but do it in private- People tend to look at you like you're crazy when you laugh at loud while reading a book... My favorite humor author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherri Milless | 7/12/2013

    " Loved this book. She's very funny! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynette | 1/27/2013

    " I also agree with one review I read about the title being great, but the story doesn't quite live up to it. I had higher expectations, but it was still enjoyable and had one or two laugh out loud moments. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cameronne | 11/15/2012

    " This was an enjoyable read...I really like it and would recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tayla | 11/5/2012

    " I definitely enjoyed this book quite a bit. It's a story about a quirky woman living in a kooky small town. Characters are colorful and inetresting. The premise would seem much more contrived and extreme if it weren't for the skill level of the writing. Definitely a good summer read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shellylindsey16 | 10/27/2012

    " her memoirs are funny, but her novel sucked "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Christina | 9/13/2012

    " I gave up on this one. I really like Laurie Notaro, but don't think I like her in the novel format. I think she's a short doses kind of author. :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Katie | 1/9/2012

    " Seeing as I really loved "Idiot Girls' Action Adeventure Club," i was super-excited to read this. However, I actually hated it from the start. I don't think I got more than a chapter or two into it before I had to stop. Bummer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacy | 11/25/2011

    " This is Laurie Notaro's first attempt at a fiction novel. Cant say I loved it..It was cute, but not something I would normally read, which is a bummer, I am finding my summer reading to be quite disappointing.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelly | 11/12/2011

    " What a funny book. I found myself laughing out loud in some parts. The ending was a little weak, but ok. I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amey | 8/18/2011

    " The beginning of this book seemed to be pretty heavy on simile. Some of them were funny, but it was starting to get tiresome and i'm glad the second half of the book used it less. The story was funny, the ending was alright. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexis | 8/5/2011

    " A tale of making friends and living what really matters. Though the story was predictable, it lived up to it's title. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Annie | 5/12/2011

    " This was a funny, light-hearted read. In fact, I laughed out loud many times. But I did feel that the author went over the top and tried too hard to be funny. It was hard to get through the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie | 5/7/2011

    " A flippant little mystery...there were some funny moments but the comedic timing seemed off, perhaps I needed to read it more slowly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marjorie | 3/7/2011

    " She is a very good writer - delivery of humor is impeccable! The ending seemed a little rushed but it was a good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 3/3/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. I even laughed out loud a few times. A fun quick read about getting comfortable with who you are, even if you're in a place you didn't think you could ever feel comfortable! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 2/8/2011

    " I loved this book. Maybe it was just the time in which I was reading it (on a much needed vacation), but I really thoroughly enjoyed it. It was quick and funny and had me laughing out loud. The ending was kind of disappointing, though, so I have to give it just four stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tessa49 | 1/6/2011

    " Loved this book! I wasn't sure at first, but it made me laugh a lot!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kara | 12/26/2010

    " I didn't realize this book was a novel rather than an essay collection like the other books of hers that I have read, but I still loved it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hendo | 12/18/2010

    " Cute--not as interesting as some of her other non fiction, but it got better toward the end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jackie | 11/29/2010

About the Author
Author Laurie Notaro

Laurie Notaro was born in Brooklyn, then spent the remainder of her formative years in Phoenix, where she created something of a checkered past. She is the New York Times bestselling author of humorous memoirs, including The Idiot Girls Action Adventure Club and It Looked Different on the Model. She is a terrible typist, doesn’t suffer big Ikes very well, and lives under an assumed name in Eugene, Oregon, where her neighbors believe she is writing about them, but she is not. She has a cute dog, a nice husband, and misses Mexican food like a limb lost to diabetes.
