My first reaction to this book was to write a short, snarky review along the lines of "Read better writings on a bathroom wall" and call it a day. But then I decided to sleep on it.
Tossed the pros and cons back and forth for a few days. Took a closer look at the things that bugged me and came to the realization it wasn't really all that bad.

If I can still remember the heroine's name a week later a true problem for me , and the author evoked certain strong emotions, then the book had to be a success of some sort. Portia Fallon is living in Syracuse, working on her PhD when she is dumped by her live-in boyfriend.
He moves out on Valentine's Day and leaves her a note. On the title page of his newly published book. Propped open by an itty bitty book light.
On their bed. Rat bastard! Portia barricades herself in her apartment, wearing the classic "I've been dumped" uniform of fuzzy robe, slippers and cheetohs in her gnarly pony-tail. Her pity party continues for weeks until she is lured home to Truly, Georgia by Mags her mother and the Miz Fallons. The Miz Fallons are three generations of unmarried women - Portia's mother Mags , her aunt Vera and her grandmother Bev. There are no familial titles in this family. They are all stubborn, strong women who suffer from what Portia calls the "Penis Teflon Effect".
Dumbest name ever! Turns out the Miz Fallons have lured Portia home because they have found a Flyer for her. However, the Flyer is a sexy, British writer and Portia finds herself highly attracted to him. Unfortunately, Portia's D-bag ex-boyfriend shows up with an engagement ring just as things start to heat up with Ian.
And BIG bonus - the deadbeat ex-boyfriend is there because the meddling Miz Fallons have summoned him to fix things with Portia after her one-night stand. To ensure he hangs around, they give him a job as manager of their bookstore.
What did I say? The Miz Fallons are funny, over-the-top characters who create unbelievable amounts of mayhem and chaos ie.
Their characters are definitely the reason why I stayed interested in this book! I think the author attempted to build suspense by creating a family who will NOT talk about their pasts.
Little tidbits about their pasts were dropped here and there - just enough to keep the reader wondering. And it has to be said - these people are dysfunctional with a capital "D". A good portion of the book is spent with Portia searching for the reason why her father left Mags because Mags refused to talk about it. The resolution was too rushed and not satisfactory to me.
Then there was Portia's best friend. A pregnant woman who could turn the air blue with her mouth. She could out-cuss a sailor on any given day and make him come back for rounds 2 and 3.
She was funny at times and tenacious at other times. She proved to be the biggest meddler in Portia's life when she power-walked to Ian's front door 9-months-pregnant! And herein lies my bigger issue with this book - Portia sleeps with the ex-boyfriend in a moment of horny weakness.
The way things went down really irritated me, but in hindsight Ian did tell her he wanted to be friends and nothing more. He was finished writing his book and was headed back to London.
Still, Portia knew she loved him and wanted to be with him. I'm not quite sure how I would handle the situation were I in the same position. Judge not lest ye be judged and all that crap! Finally, the ending was a HFN happy for now ending. No declaration of love from the hero. Just a "let's try things out and see how it works" kind of ending with warm, fuzzy feelings.
The book had lots of potential. But it fell short for me. The author's writing style is what drew me in that and Victoria Dahl's comments on the Smart Bitches website. Her style is quirky and easy to read. Just wish she'd try a little harder with her endings! View all 9 comments. The whole thing disappointed me. The grandmother Bev and two adult daughters Mags and Vera supposedly have bad luck with men.
They live together in Georgia and run a book store. Mags daughter Portia lives in New York. Her boyfriend Peter left her. She thinks the women in her family are cursed.
She goes to Georgia for the summer. She asks the three women for details about why there are no men in their lives. No one will tell her anything.
Baby, 17 months, who has spent her ENTIRE life in hospital is finally home in time for Christmas

This groundbreaking anthology gave me the language, courage and sense of community I needed as a young queer woman. This groundbreaking book helped catalyze a national movement for bisexual identity, justice and equality. A Mandarin translation was published in Taiwan. The new introduction of this book updates readers to the enormous changes the past quarter century has brought — for bi people, the larger society and the sexual rights and liberation movement of which we are a part.

Once upon a time, there was a king and a queen who desperately wanted a child. It seemed like an eternity, but then one perfect day, the queen became pregnant. Do kings and queens have neighbors? Never you mind that for now. The neighbor was an old lady or a witch which is pretty much the same thing.

This book of interdisciplinary essays explores how youth has been represented in American culture. The book focuses on familiar literary, film and television texts set within a framework of ideas drawn from cultural and social theory, presenting innovative and challenging analyses of new and classic texts from the s to the s. The collection contributes to the necessary and important debate over the meanings of youth representation within American culture, emphasising the ideological nature of youth and its centrality to a complex reading of popular culture. In particular, the book examines issues of gender, race and sexuality as central to the construction of youth identity and to the other significant relationships between youth and authority. It deliberately asserts the contradictions in youth representations and denies any easy definitions that might serve to compound stereotypes or sustain vested interests.
No eBook available Amazon. I was just re-reading this book. I'm a lot older now than I was when I first read it, and the book definitely made me think more than the last time I read it.
What gets the girls at Real Life Style through the summer? Most sane people would not go to such lengths so Kyle discovered a few sellers on Etsy that sell block printed clothing, sheets, and pillow cases. Have I told you lately how much I love that girl?
