Summary from Goodreads:
Quirky and clumsy twenty-two-year-old Paige Crawford arrives in London on a cold Saturday in January. Just when Paige starts to think that moving thousands of miles away from home with no real plan was a bad idea, Jason Frost appears. Confident and classy, Jason is the complete opposite of Paige and just what she needs in her life, or so she thinks.
But before their romance has time to blossom, Paige trips and falls into the arms of a mysterious man on a drunken night out. She’s snapped by paparazzi, and newspaper headlines the next day suggest that she’s having an affair with a married footballer.
Paige finds herself instantly elevated to tabloid celebrity status which isn’t exactly a picnic, particularly when trying to juggle her new job at Fashionista magazine, a catalog of dating disasters and a nagging doubt that she maybe she can’t conquer London after all.
When a trip back to Canada for Christmas reminds Paige why she left her old life behind, she returns to London with renewed vigor realizing that while jobs, flats and men may come and go, friends in London are forever.
In London I could be Paige Crawford,(fill in awesome life here), not Paige Crawford, wanna be current events journalist, weird Jackie's little sister and all around ordinary girl.It's sad but true that someone could become famous over night by accident!
What a fun story! Paige might be a crazy mess, but she has a great spirit. She makes some bad choices (drinking, Jason, more drinking) but shes a young 20 something in a new place - LONDON!
Nothing is ever truly permanent, so I need to get my ass diversified.All Paige needed was to go home to Canada and reboot, then she was ready to take on London!
Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars! This was a cute, fun story, with a happy ending for Paige. A great summer read!
