If lad lit had half the pizzazz of Millington’s charming novel, it might be a viable genre. Spastically self-deprecating ghostwriter Tom Cartwright lands the gig of his life when he’s asked to pen the life of Georgina Nye, a raven-locked soap star with a wicked wit. Things turn tricky, though, as Tom begins to fall for Georgina despite his happy relationship of five years. It sounds like every boy’s dream, but Millington manages to make this story less about star shtupping than the anatomy of romance. What defines compatibility? Is it the food we eat or the humor we indulge in? Millington explores these questions without succumbing to formula.
