The Boston Girl

The Boston Girl

In high-society Boston, Lily Fitzpatrick is the pampered daughter of newspaper mogul Phineas Fitzpatrick. Born to an immigrant Irish family, Phineas has created The Bostonian newspaper and crafted it into one of the most widely read papers on the East Coast. But his great success comes at a price. At the turn of the century, Phineas allows his journalists to practice yellow journalism. The stories he publishes are only partly true and extremely slanted with one goal in mind: to sell newspapers. When a young politician’s son is arrested for a murder he claims was self-defense, The Bostonian has a field day. Once the son is convicted and hanged for murder, a series of tragic events are triggered. Suddenly, Lily is whisked away to Europe with her grandmother as chaperone to escape the danger that surrounds her, though she has no idea of it. Once in Europe, she meets a delightful group of travelers including two English brothers, a Southern belle and her gentlemanly sibling, a young Frenchwoman and her aunt, and a handsome Italian charmer. But someone is not what they seem. As the assassin moves closer to Lily, intent on doing her mortal harm, there is someone else set on protecting her . . . no matter the cost.

Girl Logic: The Genius and the Absurdity

Girl Logic: The Genius and the Absurdity

From breakout stand-up comedian Iliza Shlesinger comes a subversively funny collection of essays and observations on a confident woman's approach to friendship, singlehood, and relationships."Girl Logic" is Iliza's term for the way women obsess over details and situations that men don't necessarily even notice. She describes is as a characteristically female way of thinking that appears to be contradictory and circuitous but is actually a complicated and highly evolved way of looking at the world. When confronted with critical decisions about dating, sex, work, even getting dressed in the morning, Iliza argues that women will by nature consider every repercussion of every option before making a move toward what they really want. And that kind of holistic thinking can actually give women an advantage in what is still a male world.In Iliza's own words: "Understanding Girl Logic is a way of embracing both our aspirations and our contradictions. GL is the desire to be strong and vulnerable. It's wanting to be curvy, but rail thin at the same time. It's striving to kick ass in a man's world while still being loved by the women around you."This book is also for me, because apparently expounding on a stage for two hours a night wasn't enough. (Trust me, if I could start a cult I would, ...
