Summary
"Abbi Waxman is both irreverent and thoughtful."--#1 New York Times bestselling author Emily Giffin

A young woman arrives in Los Angeles determined to start over and discovers she doesn't need to leave everything behind after all, from Abbi Waxman, USA Today bestselling author of The Bookish Life of Nina Hill

When Laura Costello moves to Los Angeles, trying to escape an overprotective family and the haunting memories of a terrible accident, she doesn't expect to be homeless after a week. (She's pretty sure she didn't start that fire -- right?) She also doesn't expect to find herself adopted by a rogue bookseller, installed in a lovely but completely illegal boardinghouse, or challenged to save a losing trivia team from ignominy...but that's what happens. Add a regretful landlady, a gorgeous housemate and an ex-boyfriend determined to put himself back in the running and you'll see why Laura isn't really sure she's cut out for this adulting thing. Luckily for her, her new friends Nina, Polly and Impossibly Handsome Bob aren't sure either, but maybe if they put their heads (and hearts) together they'll be able to make it work.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Waxman (I Was Told It Would Get Easier, 2020) has a talent for creating familiar characters who are flawed in all the ways many of us are but didn't know anyone else was. Her latest takes place in the same L.A. neighborhood where readers met Waxman's previous protagonists, a few of whom, including Nina Hill, make cameos here. Laura, who recently moved across the country to attend grad school, suffers anxiety, ramped up after a car accident a few years prior. She's ashamed for anyone to know about it, but she soon discovers that her new friends love her because of her flaws, not in spite of them. And naturally, there's romance to be had. A subplot involving Laura's new landlord distracts a little from Laura's journey of self-discovery, and the multiple points of view jar slightly and minimize opportunities for deep characterization (likely setups for future novels). Yet Waxman nimbly describes the normality of anxiety, and readers can count on her to provide comfort and feel-good smiles. Readers of Emily Henry, Linda Holmes, and Beth O'Leary will be delighted."
