Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

ncCarter's debut sucks the reader into the hyper-neurotic world of struggling actress cum talented kleptomaniac Melanie Zeitgar, for whom the guilty thrill of a good theft can take the sting out of boyfriend mishaps, job failures and dysfunctional family affairs. But stealing stops being a palliative for this 20-something New Yorker when the habit veers out of control and jeopardizes her shot at a relationship with a man who demands nothing more than honesty. With incisive, funny writing, Carter reveals a highly troubled but very likeable woman lost in the big city. Though the conclusion disintegrates into pat psychobabble that explains Melanie's need to steal, the novel adds the twist of deep-seeded pathology to the basic chick lit formula, and, in so doing, contains an element of frantic desperation that is as sad as it is amusing.

Review

"Move over Shopaholic. With perfect comic sleight of hand. She'll Take It chronicles the adventure of the most neurotic public enemy ever to hit the Big Apple. It should be a crime to have this much fun reading a book."

Format: Paperback
As the author of "Something for Nothing: Shoplifting Addiction and Recovery" I was eager to read Mary Carter's book about a shoplifting addict/kleptomaniac. While our books are certainly different, I enjoyed the story and found that Ms. Carter's heroine's "secret life" of angst rang true with the many people who also suffer from this baffling behavioral disorder. I know many more people shoplift than we think and this book may help readers get a glimpse into this behavior as well as into themselves. The feelings and themes in the book are universal.

I wanted this nutty, funny and vulnerable character to stop stealing, but I also couldn't help relishing it every time she did. I loved this character and rooted for her all the way. Didn't want it to end.

I have a confession to make, I am a thief! Every chance I get I steal a moment to read Mary Carters book "She'll Take It!". Twenty minutes hear, forty-five minutes there, (if I am really lucky and don't get caught) an hour here. I can't help myself, I have to read this book! I wish I could just sit down and finish the whole thing in one sitting - its a page turner! Its rare I laugh out loud from a book, but I constantly found myself doing so at every cafe', every bus ride, every morning before the kids get up. Whenever (and wherever) I can find a quiet moment to steal, I take it!

Melanie Zeitgar is a completely real and likable character. The book made me feel like I was eavesdropping on a handful of girlfriends in some outta the way cafe' in New York City. It felt like a real life version of "Sex and the City" (where people actually worry about their next paycheck). On top of that you get to do something that has eluded single men everywhere for ages - you get a rare look into the mind of a real women and hear how she thinks! The f/x network would have a goldmine of good programming if they green lit this authors property!

sure the heroine is not perfect, just like becky bloomwood in shopaholic series. but the similarity ends there. while becky come across as a very annoying, neurotic yet selfish shopaholic, melanie understands her condition perfectly and tried to maturely albeit hilariously solve her problem. she also has a self depreciating characteristics that make us love her even more.
