This is Melanie's story of all the temp jobs she has had and what happens in them till she gets the job she wants and it becomes permanent. If you have ever had to temp then you know the nightmare jobs you have to do to get a permanent one then this book will have you laughing because you have been there and done that. If you have never temp in your life thank God everyday for that because it is a nightmare.
This is a must read that takes you on a journey of life, love and finding the right job for you!

The style of Templand contributed to making a serious topic more enjoyable to read about. Humorous temp jobs from Melanie's past are mixed in with her narration of the present, which provides comic relief and makes the book lighthearted rather than depressing. The crazy blood-bank manager and her endless professional failings balances out Melanie's awful stint in the asbestos-filled Annex.
Some characters were developed better than others, but on the whole they were likeable and relatable. Melanie's relationship with her grandparents, especially her grandfather, is described well and contributes to the reader's understanding not only of Melanie's past, but also of her work ethic and goals for herself.
One thing I didn't like about Templand was the lack of dialogue. Most descriptions were narrated through Melanie's eyes, in a journal-type format. However, dialogue was used in these journal entries. I would have liked to see more of that, to break up some of Melanie's thoughts.
Overall, Templand was a good book that I would recommend to teens and young adults who enjoy chick-lit. It is a great book option for a day at the beach or lazy weekend.

I had a harder time connecting to Melanie but I think that is because the book is set in 2001 and I at that was in Jr High. :) I did like that she is sassy and funny. I could relate to the job hunting portion of it which was quite comical :) it was a pretty easy read that I think people of that generation might appreciate more than I did but all together a decent book that kept me entertained.

Her story also tells about how someone can give up those morals and beliefs, just because everything keeps dragging you down. I am glad Melanie didn’t, but it was more thanks to her beau. Nice story. Even though it was about the bad and the ugly, it is not depressing.
This story was just OK for me. I felt a certain level of disconnect from Melanie. Melanie was a young woman looking for a permanent job and tells her story through the various temp positions she held. I've never been a temp so maybe I didn't get it. While I think Melanie is level headed, smart and deserving of a job she is also selfish, needy, and expects life to just fall into her lap. She was not very in tune to the ways of the world. Her ex didn't do much for me either. Phil should have definitely been an afterthought. Papaw and Dave were great characters and made the story more fun. I just didn't feel strongly about the story.
