Summary
  • "A heartening and uproariously funny novel of high hopes, bad choices, book love, and one woman's best--and worst--intentions. Through emails, journal entries, combative online reviews, texts, and tweets, Fawn plans her next move to reclaim her beloved business--and her life"--
  • Fawn Birchill knows that her used bookstore is the heart of West Philadelphia, a cornerstone of culture for a community that for twenty years has found the quirkiness absolutely charming. When an amicable young indie bookseller invades her block, Fawn is convinced that his cushy couches, impressive selection, coffee bar, and knowledgeable staff are a neighborhood blight. As she wages her war, Fawn is forced to reflect on a few unavoidable truths: the tribulations of online dating, a strained relationship with her family, and a devoted if not always law-abiding intern-- not to mention what to do about a pen pal with whom she hasn't been entirely honest and the litany of repairs her aging store requires. -- adapted from back cover
