About the Author
Aleesa Sutton has an A.R.C.T. from the Royal Conservatory of Music and a B.A. in Music from Brigham Young University. These have opened up countless opportunities such as legal secretary, double-decker tour bus guide and ice cream scooper. Once, she also played the piano at a crazy Mexican couple's dinner party, where they tied a bib around her neck and spoon-fed her soup.
She starved artfully for a few years in Toronto before becoming a Cambridge-certified ESL teacher and teaching abroad. When her backpacking trip across Europe surprisingly did not produce the husband she’d always dreamed of, she came home and decided to write a book about it all.
Aleesa lives in Vancouver, BC, where she continues to teach English and dreams of sharing the fridge with someone, someday.

After reading through the first few pages, it became evident that I was going to have a hard time putting the book down. With enormous humour, witty charm and pause for self-reflection, the author courageously shares deeply personal experiences and excerpts from her diary, which revolve around dating and friendships and how her discovery of both eventually lead back to her religious beliefs. Females will relate and be delighted in finding relief, sadness and sheer laughter as they realize that the dating scenarios from the author's preserved teenage to adulthood perspective, is right on the money! Males: PAY ATTENTION! This book reminded me of the Mel Gibson movie "What Woman Want" minus the part about boys being able to hear and know what the girl is thinking. Boys: if you want to know what women think, a good start would be to pick up this book and see for yourselves.
Now, if her silent knight in shining armour would hurry up already!
Sutton's "authorial" commentary on the diary entries is definitely my favourite writing; her dry wit is a great counterpoint to the confessional tone of the diary entries. As she matures from naive teen to worldly, questioning and discerning adult, the diary entries shift accordingly in tone and become more introspective, and themselves deal with some of the issues at the heart of Sutton's situation.
I certainly learned a great deal about Mormonism and the social pressures that are placed on female Mormons; the appendix offers some ideas from Sutton as to how the LDS community might be more supportive to those female members who remain unmarried, and it's here where I think the book goes beyond its own ends to something bigger and very important.
It's great beach/pool/travel reading -- fun, easy to read, but not light in subject matter, relatively quick. I couldn't stop once I started. Pick it up!
