Rejection a novel

Meagan Bridges



Ooh a chick lit novel! My favourite genre. I received this book as a freebie, which was lucky because for an ebook and an unknown author I thought it was much too expensive at £3.86, and that's a shame because it was very well written and extremely funny in parts, as well as having a genuinely interesting characters and a story with a beginning, middle and end.

The main character, Maggie McKenzie has just been dumped by her boyfriend (hence the title, although the 'a novel' bit struck me as a bit strange) and is obviously distraught, although, in the crazy world of Maggie's it's not overly tearful or fingernail-gnawing sad. It's fun and light, not too memorable, but entertaining and could easily stand alongside Sophie Kinsella without worry. I liked Maggie McKenzie and was keen for her to come up trumps. This book is well worth the read.

Maggie McKenzie battles overwhelming rejection, raccoon attacks and personal space invading coworkers with only random facts and a growing sense of adventure.
