When unassuming mailroom worker Kate Little agrees to become an underwear tester for a marketing company, things get uncomfortable fast. Not only has she never worn “fancy” underpants before, she has to work closely with handsome marketing manager Bryan Eddleman, and that’s enough to keep her in a constant state of confusion. Trouble is, Bryan’s competing with another manager for a promotion that hinges on the results of the test group. Kate can’t determine if his sudden interest is really in her or her surprisingly insightful weekly reports on foundation garments. Add a jealous coworker out to sabotage Kate’s budding love life, an overly helpful gay friend with nothing better to do than shove her into Bryan’s arms, and a rambunctious teacup dog to the chaos and you’ll have a typical day in Kate’s less than ordinary life. The last thing she needs is panty lines.
Wow! This book is funny while at the same time being poignant and touching. How many of us have ever felt like we don’t quite fit in? Kate Little is going through her life, working in the mailroom when circumstances she couldn’t have predicted suddenly have her trying on underwear for a marketing company. Kate is plus-sized and not as confident in herself as she should be.
This story is not just about the girl meeting the boy, it’s also about the girl meeting herself. She’s funny, tough, and sometimes wrong but she’s also extraordinary even if she doesn’t know it.
I loved this book. I loved everything about it. Sometimes, when I read a book I feel like a character is too snarky, that the humor covers up any real human emotion. Sookoo doesn’t do that. She uses humor to enhance, not to replace, the feelings this book invokes.
Bravo Sandra, I loved this book and everyone should read it. It’s out in print and e-book format. Go get a copy!
