Writing is a Disease

What am I RE-reading now?  Boy Meets Girl (Meg Cabot)

Annnd . . . what do I think so far?  Chick-lit! and a crazy-fun read.

Kate works in an HR office. Her boss in s tyrant. She has to fire someone she thinks shouldn't be fired. Her boyfriend won't commit. She can't afford her own New York City apartment. And just as it looks like it can't get worse it does. Remember that woman she fired? She's suing Kate for wrongful termination. She has to give a deposition in front of Mitch Hertzog (beautiful, dreamy body, wealthy, great smile, from a nightmare family of blood-sucking lawyers).

One of the reasons I love this book (besides the fact that Meg Cabot does awkward very well with believable, relatable characters) is that is isn't written with narration. Everything is told through other forms of communication. Here are a few examples:
•letters from lawyers
•memos
•IM
•email
•menu
•notes written back and forth
•transcripts
•telephone messages
•grocery receipts
•business cards
•newspaper ads
•recipes
•journal entries
(By way of warning, there's a lot of swearing in this book. If that bothers you, don't read it.)
