Review

Crane shows a growing depth. The humor we enjoyed in Crane's debut bubbles up here, too. -- Library Journal Library Journal

About the Author

MEGAN CRANE lives in Los Angeles, California

More About the Author

Megan Crane is a New Jersey native who had great plans to star on Broadway, preferably in Evita, just like Patti LuPone. Sadly, her inability to wow audiences with her singing voice required a back up plan. Accordingly, she graduated from Vassar College and got her MA and PhD in literature from the University of York in England. She wrote her doctoral dissertation on AIDS literature, mostly so she could wallow in her obsession with the remarkable multi-media artist David Wojnarowicz and her idol, the bitter and hilarious David Feinberg. After many years in the rain and subject to the whim of seasons, she followed the sun to Los Angeles, where she lives with a dog, a cat, two crazy kittens, and an artist named Jeff. She is still plotting her Broadway debut.

Customer Reviews

It really brings out the true personality Meredith has for some reason hidden.
Amber Lane
Ms. Crane really brings out the characters and fleshes out the story more in the this one, they are far more believable and less part of the background.
LaMonita
Meredith cannot wait to get out of Dodge until she meets sexy Scott Sheridan, whom she and her crowd tormented in high school as befitting nerd status.

I read this one before her debut novel, English as a Second Language, and though both are good, this one surpasses her first. Ms. Crane really brings out the characters and fleshes out the story more in the this one, they are far more believable and less part of the background. Both of her heroines have been flawed (aren't we all), but I found Merediths voice to be more substantial, and her family is a riot. Having gone through the similar experience of moving home after college, I can say that I empathized with everything she was going through trying to fit back into a life she had mostly outgrown, and in the end, accepts in a new way. I think Ms. Crane's writing will just get better and better, her sense of humor is fantastic, laugh out loud funny, and her stories are deeper than what is seen on surface. Her grasp of the trials and tribulations of friendship is very sharp. Looking forward to Frenemies.

Megan Crane is a great novelist. I found this book to be an unexpectedly compelling read (unexpectedly because I'd never heard of Megan Crane and wasn't expecting much.) The character development here is exquisite and--in a departure from most chick lit--100% organic. These aren't prepackaged stereotypes for your absent-minded pool-side consumption. The first person narration skillfully weaves a tale from the slightly flawed, somewhat narrow viewpoint of the heroine while the reader has the delight (and the trauma) of watching her grow. The events are satisfying but realistic--no perfect, candy-coated solutions here--and so much better for it. This book is funny and wry and very observant. Certain lines, universal truths that I'm not sure anyone has ever put into words before, will never leave me. And The Guy is INCREDIBLY HOT!

I became a fan of Megan Crane's " Frenemies" and promptly bought this book on my Kindle.

I now wish I had just passed on it.

SPOILERS SPOILER SPOILERS

The main character Meredith McKay has created a lifestyle for herself with her boyfriend of many years away from her crazy family.

When her father has a car accident that happens the same day that her mother has planned her vacation her family talks her into staying and taking care of him (apparently getting a nurse was out of the question and also the mother kind of a jerk for still going on vacation but there are some issues between the parents that Crane just glosses over).

Meredith back at home finally confronts her former best friend about to be sister in law about how mean she was in high school but then Meredith gets an eye opener when she gets confronted about the fact that she wasn't nice either and was also a jerk to everyone since then in several ways (seriously this is why she did not speak to her best friend for 10 years so so dumb).

Also while home Meredith just has to have an affair with the boy she used to torture and falls in love with him while ignoring the fact she has a boyfriend (also dont see what was so appealing about the new guy).

I think that is where Meredith lost me you don't get a good reason for why she threw away her best friend, her new boyfriend and then she moves back home to become a wedding planner. Yes you read that right.

Really wish I had passed on this novel, really not that great.

Format: Paperback
I like chick lit, but sometimes grow frustrated with the rich, spoiled main characters. While the main character in this book is no angel, she is firmly grounded in something like middle-class reality. It's refreshing to read and interesting to discuss. Nice choice for a book club that wants something less than "The Grapes of Wrath" but something with enough "meat" to discuss.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book about a thirty something girl named Meredith, who had to leave her home, job, and boyfriend in the south, to go back to her hometown in New Jersey. She hated her life there and tried to get away from it, only to realize, it is where her heart is truly is.

I thought that this was a great book all around, because of so many reasons. Meredith is such a believable character, because so many people are able to identify with her. I know of so many people who think that they had to leave the place where they were, to "find themselves," only to end up where they were in the first place. While her family helps her realize how perfect she never was, she also realizes how much she appreciates them. This novel is a story that has been done many times, but I really loved it.

I don't know which character I enjoyed the most in Megan's newest novel. Hot Scotty's nasty sarcasm, evil little Hope's hysterical antics, or for that matter all of the characters had me rolling on the floor. (Mind you, we still haven't discussed the story) Which was so funny you just have to read it for yourself to see! I love her and all her books. Buy this right now you won't regret it!

Format: Paperback
Several years ago twenty-eight years old Meredith McKay fled the Hoboken area to escape her pain in the butt family and feels good about her life as she likes her job and her boyfriend. When her brother Christian calls demanding she come home to help care for their father while he heals from a broken leg he received in a car accident, she wants to say no as their dad has three adult children with two living nearby. However, being the responsible one she arranges time off from work to come home so that her mother can continue her tour of Europe without knowing of her spouse's accident.

Girl code insures that Meredith behaves when she sees her former best friend from high school Jeannie though she would prefer to slap her once pal, but she is Christian's fiancée. She keeps her sister Hope and Christian from killing one another while tending to her father's needs. Meredith cannot wait to get out of Dodge until she meets sexy Scott Sheridan, whom she and her crowd tormented in high school as befitting nerd status. They share torrid sex, which she finds divine and he finds as retribution for what Meredith and her merrymakers did to him a decade ago.

This chick lit contemporary romance is refreshed by Meredith's reassessment of her seemingly dysfunctional family as she draws different conclusions the second time around by living with them as she grows from scorn to understanding. The cast is solid as her siblings, her future sister-in-law, her lover, and her dad turn Meredith's cushy world upside down. Meredith's maturation is handled with humor and pathos so that the sub-genre fans receive a wonderful tale.
