"It" girl Ellen Gregory has it all: a brilliant career in stand-up comedy, a smash-hit sitcom, the obligatory celebrity mansion in LA, and the publicists, manager, and studio executives that come with it. She is, simply, America's Favorite Girl Next Door. But after a violent encounter with a stalker, Ellen flees Hollywood and finds herself on a journey made for the big screen. From LA to New York to her childhood home in Iowa to the bedroom of a brilliant scientist who defies fate, Ellen Gregory rewrites the script of her life as she never imagined it. A sexy, romantic, literary page-turner, The Final Appearance of America's Favorite Girl Next Door explores the collision of predestination, technology, love, and loss.
