Format: Paperback
In Silver Springs, Maryland twenty-nine years old first grade school teacher Phoebe Kassner remains a virgin, not by choice, but by circumstance. She thought her latest boyfriend Bill would be the one but he dumped her before they slept together.

Phoebe knows she is the complete opposite of her twin sister Grace "call me Madison", who hopes to make it in Hollywood. After begin tossed in the first round of Singing Sensation, Madison is on the Yank team of the Belle of Georgia reality show.

Meanwhile Phoebe gets a call from high school teacher Jerry Sullivan, who thinks she is Karen, a teacher eh met at a recent conference. Apparently Karen not only gave out the wrong number, but Phoebe's email address too. Feeling sorry for Jerry, Phoebe meets him and they start dating before falling in love even as Madison finds a southern gentleman to her liking.

Teenage stepsister Alexa, who is in Jerry's English class, sums up the plot quite well with the potential of her having three sibling-in-laws (there is an older stepbrother) if the twins get their acts together. The amusing story line is lighthearted fun as Phoebe and Jerry fall in love while in the background reality TV is satirized by the antics of Madison and her rivals. With a neat afterward involving Karen, readers will appreciate the double the fun misadventures of the twins IN STEREO WHERE AVAILABLE.

When 29 year old Phoebe Kastner's cell phone rings, she lets the message unit pick up. It's a wrong number, some guy asking for someone named Karen. When the same thing happens again a few days later, she realizes the poor guy has been given a fake number. After agonizing over whether she should or not, she finally calls him - just to say who he's actually been calling. He has a nice voice - and is clearly so happy it's Karen calling back - Phoebe hasn't the heart to reveal the truth. He asks for her e-mail. E-mail would make telling him much easier. She gives him the address. A few seconds later, a short note arrives, attached to a sweet little poem. He's sensitive. Phoebe is impressed, and more than a little interested.

So begins the central plot of this honest and almost painfully realistic portrayal of a woman who's reached a turning point. Every effort Phoebe has made to build a lasting relationship has fallen short. She's almost ready to give up, can hardly bear another failure, but slowly, inch by inch, she tries again and the journey makes absorbing and heartrending reading.

After critiquing a few million words by some wonderful writers, I know the polished prose of a professional writer when I see it. This is the real stuff. Author Anderson is flawless in the mechanics and at her strongest in the characterizations she builds. The players on stage feel and act like real people.

I picked this one up because my daughter said it was great. Despite being male, over 65, and a writer of adventure novels, which means I'm not part of the normal audience this story will attract, I found myself rooting hard for Phoebe and Jerry to make it.

There is little character development and a lot of ridiculousness (and not in the adventurous & fun way) that make this story unlikeable. At first, I liked Phoebe and Jerry and was rooting for them, but the more pathetic their situation got, the more I was turned off.

**Spoilers ahead**

-He was an alcoholic, tells her, and then she gets upset when his mother tells him about it?
-He has anger management issues (beating up the boyband guy, the photographer, etc.) that seem to be perfectly okay.
-He quit drinking because he got drunk and lost his virginity at 21? Right, that's realistic.
-They knew one another for 3 months and we're supposed to think it's great that they're rushing into marriage?
-Oh, how romantic! He says "I love you" and then immediately rushes to the nearest motel so they can have sex.
-He has what seems to be an unhealthy sex drive and little self control... Yet that isn't an issue?
-They come thisclose to breaking up because Phoebe is immature and insecure and then they, again, make a rash decision on a road trip - this time essentially having a Vegas wedding.
-She immediately starts calling herself by his last name even though there's no way she's been able to legally change her name yet.
-She's so immature she can't handle being separated from her "husband" for an hour to watch her sister get married.
-Where did Jerry's sister, niece and nephew go? They disappeared without explanation after his proposal.

There was also a lot of unnecessary mentions of God. Religion had nothing to do with the plot and I felt that the author was trying to insinuate that church is part of "good" people's lives.

Phoebe didn't seem to be making many good decisions and reminded me a lot of someone in high school who is still flailing about. She did not act like a mature adult woman and that was really disappointing.

I really enjoyed this book. It was funny and captivating, it kept me turning pages to the end. The author has a very relatable and authentic style that makes the book a pleasure to read. I especially liked the ending, it was clever and quick. I often find myself speed reading through a whole chapter of forced explanations from authors who just don't know when to stop. One note to the author in the spirit of appreciating the general authenticity of the story, as a Florida native, I have never seen an orange tree that could be climbed. They have dagger sized thorns, and even professional pickers just lean a ladder against the tree and pick the fruit from the outside. Just FYI, the book was great and I will surely look for more works by Becky Anderson.
