Voula Pavlopoulos won't be planning a big fat Greek wedding anytime soon. After a turbulent childhood and two-and-a-half former boyfriends-if you can call them that-Voula's content to have alone time in her crowded apartment and drinks with her best friend, Jamie (who's never been one of those married people who ditches her pals). Voula doesn't see it coming when Jamie says the two grossest words in the English language Voula can possibly imagine-"We're trying." Of course, after "We're trying" comes "We're pregnant." Now, Jamie's busy with Lamaze class and besieged by swollen ankles, while Voula is becoming an expert on what to expect when your former wild-and-crazy girlfriend is expecting. Well, Voula's tired of sitting on the sidelines of life and has decided she'd better start living it. First step: Stop being her mother's doormat. Second step: Stop being so picky and give a guy a chance. But most importantly: It's time to say goodbye to Armando, her Italian stallion roommate, and whoever else is living in their third bedroom. That's right-she is going to buy a place. There are three and a half million apartments in Manhattan. Finding the right one can't be that hard. Can it?

Ariella Papa is the author of ON THE VERGE (RDI #7), which has been selling extremely well in NA. She has an authentic, urban 20-something voice. UP & OUT is the first book of her new two-book contract with RDI.From Booklist:
Voula Pavlopolous is thrown when her best friend, Jamie, announces that she and her husband, Raj, have decided to try to conceive. Voula, a freelance writer who lives in a three-bedroom apartment with an Italian stud named Armando, isn't even dating anyone. After Armando almost burns down their apartment, Voula decides to change her life and buy a condo. She begins to explore the competitive New York real estate market, although she is more focused on writing a series of freelance articles on the condo search than on actually finding a place of her own. Voula's life is already changing more than she is accustomed to: she is becoming friends with the latest tenant in the third room of her apartment, Kelly, and she is falling for a handsome fireman named Paul, who seems perfect until he reveals something that she is not prepared to handle. Like Papa's previous novels, including Up & Out (2003), her third is a droll and witty look at the trials and tribulations twentysomethings face. Kristine Huntley
