Lizzie just moved to New York City from Ann Arbor to begin a new life as a wedding gown specialist, repairing and remodeling old vintage gowns. It is Lizzieï¿½s dream to someday own her own shop and do all of it herself. However, owning her own shop isnï¿½t Lizzieï¿½s only dream. She also dreams of marrying Luke, the man sheï¿½s been dating and living with for a few months. Things are going so well, sheï¿½s found a job as a receptionist, that pays, so she can chip in at home each month and sheï¿½s found a job at a bridal shop that doesnï¿½t pay, so she can prove what she can do and learn the ropes. Just when Lizzie thinks things canï¿½t get any better, itï¿½s nearing Christmas and sheï¿½s sure Luke is going to propose.
Luke is a pre-med student whoï¿½s been looking to have some fun. He doesnï¿½t know where his future is leading him. He only sees one day at a time. Sure, heï¿½s proud of all that Lizzie is doing, and he loves living with her, but is he really ready to settle down and commit himself to one person for the rest of his life? Will he make an exception for Lizzie when heï¿½s faced with the choice of losing her forever?
Strap yourself in for a roller-coaster ride of ups and downs in QUEEN OF BABBLE IN THE BIG CITY by Meg Cabot. What an absolutely phenomenal book. I couldnï¿½t put it down. I stayed up all night waiting to see what was going to happen next in Lizzieï¿½s life. Lizzie was the most endearing and funny character Iï¿½ve had the pleasure to read in a long time. She never let anything get her down. Yeah, she tried too hard sometimes, but thatï¿½s just her. That made the story even more fun to read. You canï¿½t help but fall a little in love with Lizzie yourself or at least want to be like her at the end of the story. Luke, on the other hand, is like a lot of men, not sure whether he wants to run around or settle down. He was so unsure of himself and his love for Lizzie. However, because of Lukeï¿½s faults, it made the story and the characters more real to me. If youï¿½re looking for a fun, fast-paced, hilarious story of life and love, QUEEN OF BABBLE IN THE BIG CITY is a definite must read for you. I guarantee you wonï¿½t be able to put the book down.
