Overview

The next big book from the author of The Next Big Thing. Now in paperback!

After shedding over seventy pounds and hiding her nerdy side, Kylie Chase has reinvented herself as a savvy trendsetter. Her classes on How to Be Cool— which promise to transform students from geek to chic—have become Chicago's hottest ticket.

But things start to unravel when Kylie's apartment burns downs and she's forced to move back in with her parents. With a sexy journalist shadowing her every move, Kylie fears her private embarrassment may become public knowledge. The stress is driving Kylie nuts—and the weight she fought so hard to lose is starting to creep back on. But with the help of her best friend Ruby, a confident plus-sized model, Kylie's starting to learn that appearances aren't everything. And that morphing from an “ugly duckling” into the queen of cool isn't all it's cracked up to be…

Editorial Reviews

BookPage
Kylie may not be the coolest girl on the block, but her flaws are precisely the reason readers will love her.
Publishers Weekly

Returning from Your Big Breakand The Next Big Thing, Edwards tracks Chicago-based image consultant Kylie Chase. Having been an overweight outcast in high school, Kylie works to save others from her younger self's fate: she talks one client out of wearing a Star Wars costume on a first date and keeps another from starring in a porno. But Kylie's deep dark secret is that she still imagines herself as a high school pudgette, and when hunky journalist Ty Benedict is assigned to cover her career, Kylie has to face the real person behind the carefully constructed image. Lame affirmations ("You are exactly who you think you are") and corny one-liners are less than cool, but Edwards makes Kylie's voice immediate and winning as she puts her through her success-doubt-success paces.

    Good buy

    I picked this book up from the summer table a few weeks ago and then forgot about it. I'm sorry I did. When I finally got round to reading it I was very happily surprised. The story showed real heart and real problems and I didn't want to see it end. I laughed so many times, out loud and to myself, while reading. The insecurities of the character are all on the page and you really get to know her. I felt like I was reading about myself at times. I recommend this a lot!

    A superior tale

    Nearly thirty years old, Kylie Chase feels she has come a long way since high school in Chicago. In her teens, she was reticent and obese. Now she dropped a ton of weight and kept it off, and provides in her seminar helping those like she was 'How to Be Cool.' However, when Kylie inadvertently overhears some high school peers deride her, she realizes her self esteem remains in negative numbers just like it was over a decade ago.--------------- Reporter Ty Benedict thinks otherwise as he sees her as a great success he is doing a story on her butterfly metamorphosis. He asks to escort her to her high school reunion, which she agrees because she is attracted to the handsome journalist. However, how will she react when she learns he is not quite the altruistic reporter he pretends to be?----------------- As with the insightful THE NEXT BIG THING, HOW TO BE COOL is a superb look at a plus size person, who in this case is no longer a plus size, but her psyche is imprinted with the belief that she still remains too big in spite of the statistical evidence (waistline and weight, etc) and anecdotal proof (male second looks) to the contrary. The character driven tale focuses on the likable Kyle who though successful still struggles to convince herself that she is cool inside. Her uncool words of wisdom aside, this is delightful tale of the importance of believing in oneself especially when your history is otherwise.-------------- Harriet Klausner
