Take Home Tuesday

UPDATE: The winner of PINK SLIP PARTY is David! Congrats! Please email your physical addy to contests(AT)knightagency.net.
Leave your name in the comment section to win PINK SLIP PARTY by Cara Lockwood. The winner will be announced tomorrow afternoon.

The 411: Jane McGregor has just been laid off from her job designing pink slips for an office supply company. The irony is not lost on her. She's a twenty-eight-year-old art major whose last major career accomplishment was being propositioned by the company vice president. Desperate to maintain her freedom from her oddball parents, tyrannical older brother, and slacker ex-boyfriend, Jane starts sending out resumes. So what if some of them aren't exactly, well, true.
When Jane's dad, a staunchly conservative believer in the corporate dream, loses his job, and her mom goes to work for a trendy dot com, Jane discovers that the family she's taken for granted is unraveling. After a fellow lay-off victim hatches a plot to seek revenge on the office supply company, Jane must choose between living in the past and seeking out a new future. To her surprise, that future might involve a most unlikely partner in crime — handsome, funny Kyle Burton — and maybe, just maybe, a new job, too.

Yay! I adore Cara Lockwood. She grew up in my home town and went to high school with my old Creative Writing teacher, which is all pretty cool. I love her work, but I haven't read this one yet!
