"A sharply drawn debut about a tart-tongued Gen-Xer trying to make it in Manhattan. May remind you of HBO’s Girls."
"Thoroughly entertaining and surprisingly thought-provoking . . . Readers will start it on the beach under an umbrella, finding themselves laughing loudly at the narrator’s clever split-second comebacks, and keep coming back to see the drama unfold. . . A perfect summer book."
"A crackling debut [with]…surprising emotional heft."
"Witty, assured, and surprising. . . A hilarious roller coaster of a ride."
"Satisfying and unexpected. . . Readers will root for this deeply flawed but ultimately appealing heroine."
"Claudia Silver is an utterly lovable heroine with a voice—and a journey—that had me hooked. It's a very funny book with a deeply compassionate heart. I rooted for Claudia, I felt for her, and I didn't want to say goodbye."
—Lauren Graham, author of Someday Someday Maybe
"Kathy Ebel is a writer of razor-sharp insight and uncommon wit, with an extraordinary ability to capture the textures of life—the language and sensibilities and fashions that define a place and time. Claudia Silver to the Rescue will transport you to New York City in the early 90s, and offers a richly detailed portrail of conflicted youth. This hugely enjoyable story manages to be funny, tense, and wise, all at once."
—Chris Pavone, author of The Expats

I am sorry but Kathy Ebel completely dropped the ball here. While Claudia Silver (the main character) is not someone I would normally like, better writing can make such a character... Read morePublished 6 months ago by William Hardin
