Franny is a young 20-something who is two and a half years into her 3-year deadline for “making it” as an actress in New York. Some of her thoughts are dizzying at points because Franny processes a lot in her head before verbalizing to those around her. As someone with a penchant for overthinking, I appreciate this; however, because Franny is young and still building her confidence in who she is as a person, her moments of self doubt (and some of the embarrassing moments that occur as a result) can be overwhelming at points. As the story progressed and I became more familiar with Franny, it was easier for me to digest everything because it was like Franny became an old friend. Speaking of friends, the supporting cast in this novel is excellent. For me, there weren’t any throwaway characters.
I would have given this novel 5 stars, but the ending felt like it left off on a cliffhanger. On the one hand, I appreciate the element of self-discovery despite not having a clear picture of the future. But on the other hand, I felt sad when I turned the page and realized there wasn’t anything left to the story. I felt like it ended in the middle of the thought. There’s definitely hope there and the idea that everything will ultimately be ok and that life is a beautiful journey and all that jazz...but I would have preferred a bit more closure, I think.
As a side note, the novel takes place in 1995. It was a nostalgic treat to walk down memory lane with things like Filofaxes, pagers, answering machines with cassette tapes, and newfangled things like caller ID and FRIENDS. I also realize enjoyed the conversation between Mae Whitman and Lauren Graham in the very last pages of the book.

I would recommend this novel to those who enjoy an easy, lighthearted novel but one that has a message. However, I would recommend reading this in either paperback or hardcover form because the diary pages were very difficult to read on kindle.
However Lauren Graham has written this as herself so it is nothing like Gilmore Girls. If you think that you will be disappointed.
Told in the funny, endearing, relatable narrative of a young, aspiring professional in her mid-20s, I really enjoyed feeling part of her attempts to make her acting dreams a reality. Her interactions with her friends, peers and rivals (some of whom weren't unlike characters I've met in real life!) were also enjoyable and entertaining on a more everyday, social level - the New York setting was an added bonus. Looking forward to delving into her next writing venture!
