The author of Other Peoples Houses and The Garden of Small Beginnings delivers a quirky and charming novel chronicling the life of confirmed introvert Nina Hill as she does her best to fly under everyones radar. Meet Nina Hill: A young woman supremely confident in her ownshell. The only child of a single mother, Nina has her life just as she wants it: a job in a bookstore, a kick-butt trivia team, a world-class planner and a cat named Phil. If she sometimes suspects there might be more to life than reading, she just shrugs and picks up a new book. When the father Nina never knew existed suddenly dies, leaving behind innumerable sisters, brothers, nieces, and nephews, Nina is horrified. They all live close by! Theyre allor mostly allexcited to meet her! Shell have to Speak. To. Strangers. Its a disaster! And as if that wasnt enough, Tom, her trivia nemesis, has turned out to be cute, funny, and deeply interested in getting to know her. Doesnt he realize what a terrible idea that is? Nina considers her options. 1. Completely change her name and appearance. (Too drastic, plus she likes her hair.) 2. Flee to a deserted island. (Hard pass, see: coffee). 3. Hide in a corner of her apartment and rock back and forth. (Already doing it.) Its time for Nina to come out of her comfortable shell, but she isnt convinced real life could ever live up to fiction. Its going to take a brand-new family, a persistent suitor, and the combined effects of ice cream and trivia to make her turn her own fresh page.
