HILARIOUS. The characters are well developed, witty and relatable. I found this at the store and asked an employee if it was available on the Nook - I was excited to hear an affirmative and bought it when I got home. I haven't finished it yet but I am glad I came across it. It deserves more than 5 stars. The plot is well established and original, the dialogue humorous and memorable. I will definitely be coming back to this author. Wickedly well done!

Funny, simple (sometimes too simple) story with a unique premise.
