Since Bridget Jones's Diary there hasn't been anything as original as this smart and funny debut novel about a young woman experiencing the trials and tribulations of the L.A. dating scene. Benjamina Franklin is a star journalist who chronicles her dating disasters for Filly, a women's magazine. When Benjamina meets Max, she believes she has finally met the man of her dreams. And just in time-her little sister's wedding is only a few months away. The only problem is that Max turns out to be, in a word, younger. A lot younger. Soon he begins to exhibit classic signs of Benjamina's worst nightmare: male commitment phobia. Will Max leave her to be single and broken-hearted? Or will Benjamina come to realize that her life is full without a pseudoboyfriend? Women everywhere will laugh and cry along with Benjamina as she navigates the highs and lows of the modern dating world.

This book should have been titled "How to Keep Cute Boys." The lead female character, Benjamina, hooks up with a cute boy at a party and spends the rest of the book trying to keep him while documenting the process through articles for her fashion magazine, FILLY. Allison Silverman narrates this silly tale with an eclectic set of voices, from the deep-voiced, whiny Max (the cute boy) to Benjamina's know-it-all mother. As the voices give the characters life, the listening is easy and fun, but the plot is noticeably thin. J.F.M. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
