More About This Book

Overview

Clarissa Schneckberg wasn't ready to leave her Silicon Valley job, get dumped by her boyfriend, or move back in with her parents. She's officially pathetic. And her prospects are dim. At least that's how they look from under the covers of her childhood bed.

But just when her life seems to be heading south, Clarissa decides to head really south-to Antarctica, to be exact. After all, the male-to-female ratio at the South Pole is something like four-to-one. With her friends, Delilah and Kate, she's ready to make the trek and sign up for some equal-opportunity jobs...even though none of them has yet to live through a winter without fuzzy slippers.

It's an amorous adventure Clarissa would be insane to pass up. But for this snow angel, sanity has outlived its usefulness.

Author Biography: Liz Maverick is a writer and adventurer whose travels have taken her as far as Ross Island, Antarctica. A former CPA with an MBA, she once worked as a tax accountant in corporate America and then as a website developer in Silicon Valley. She is currently living on the West Coast.

    This Book Blew

    This book was way overstretched. The humor was nonexistent and dry at many places. I normally like this author, that's why this book is receiving 2 stars.

    Readable, but disappointing

    Trade PB/I've read Maverick's futuristic fantasy & fantasy books and I really enjoyed most of them. This one did not have any guts to it. There was no real plot: somewhat competent woman is jilted and joins her two laid-off friends to an adventure to the Antarctic where she loses all her backbone. She doesn't really grow as a person; her friends do. Her exploits and mistakes would have gotten her thrown off the continent.

    A delightful chick-lit

    Clarissa has lived with Kieran for eight years and thinks he is about to propose. Her best friends Delilah and Kate agree and even throw an engagement party, but Kier fails to give her a ring. Instead he breaks up with her after she quits her job to become a housewife to him. She returns to her mom¿s place with her tail dragging.............................. While Clarissa mopes, her friends try to cheer her up without success. Her mom wanting her daughter back on her feet and happy gives a brochure on Antarctica to Kate. Before Clarissa knows what is happening she is on her way to Antarctica for employment accompanied by her two buddies. There the male to female ratio is 4:1 with most of the men being single.............................. Though the heroine is in her late twenties-early thirties this is a coming of age chick lit tale. Readers will have to adjust to decisions that flaky Clarissa makes but will find the time worth doing. Antarctica serves as a terrific backdrop even if plunging into the icy water seems cold for even a polar bear. Chick lit fans will appreciate this fine tale of a woman trying to find herself in the frozen Antarctic tundra......................... Harriet Klausner
