Pajama Game

Overview

When Moxie Brecker chose her kicky nickname back in college, it suited her perfectly. But now she feels it's one big misnomer. After graduation, she set out to command her own seventh-grade science class and was stunned to find the job too challenging.

Overview

When Moxie Brecker chose her kicky nickname back in college, it suited her perfectly. But now she feels it's one big misnomer. After graduation, she set out to command her own seventh-grade science class and was stunned to find the job too challenging. She didn't have the energy necessary to get a roomful of pre-teens excited about atoms, and she never felt like herself, so she handed in her chalk and lesson plans. Stumped about where to turn next, she followed the advice of her best friend Gerard and took a job folding underthings at the chain lingerie store in the mall.

She's got plenty at home to distract her, including her neighbor, Steven Tyler (no, not that Stephen Tyler) and the kindly septuagenarian Joe, who runs the joke shop downstairs, but she spends her days languishing in the store. Though she feels tired and just out of it physically, she still gets bored steaming peignoir sets, protecting the thong table from shoplifters, and readjusting bras straps for hours on end. Maybe that's why, when a handsome guy named Allan starts hanging around the store for little chats, Moxie sees hope on the horizon. Maybe, just maybe, her employee discount won't go to waste for much longer…

    A very humorous chick lit Bostonian joyride

    Rebecca ¿Moxie¿ Brecker tried teaching science to middle school students, but while she remained in a state of rest her pupils seem to be in a perpetual state that proves sexual energy never vanishes only changes form. Unable to deal with the fifth state of matter (teenagers), Moxie quits the classroom to work at the local lingerie chain store. She still feels tired............ Moxie is attracted to her new Combat Zone neighbor Steven Tyler who receives a lot of packages from fans confusing him with that singer-father of the actresses. Though he is friendly he never seems to move beyond showing her his latest ¿gift¿; Moxie wonders if he sells drugs. Moxie is dragging from dealing with cups and serial underwear thieves so is unable to follow up with the ringless hunk that came in to buy lingerie. Her shrink insists her fatigue is psychosomatic, but when Moxie finally gets tested, she learns that she must deal with a physical disease not mental burnout. While her only friend Gerald freaks out over James Spader, Steven tries to persuade Moxie that she is his foxy............... Although the story line contains a serious subplot involving health, the well being of this story line centers on the heroine¿s amusing asides. Steven is a delightful support character trying to convince Moxie that he is not a dealer and that he wants her; Gerald enables the audience to see deeper inside Moxie. Although the numerous subplots tie together, they can leave a reader weary trying to follow yet Eugenie Seifer Olson provides a very humorous chick lit Bostonian joyride........... Harriet Klausner
