Summary
A USA Today BestsellerThe only child of a single mother, Nina Hill has her life just as she wants it: a job in a bookstore, a kick-butt trivia team, a world-class planner and a cat named Phil. If she sometimes suspects there might be more to life than reading, she just shrugs and picks up a new book. When the father Nina never knew existed suddenly dies, leaving behind innumerable sisters, brothers, nieces, and nephews, Nina is horrified. They all live close by and are excited to meet her! It's time for Nina to come out of her comfortable shell, but she isn't convinced real life could ever live up to fiction. It's going to take a brand-new family to make her turn her own fresh page.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Book nerds will feel strong kinship with the engaging, introverted Nina Hill, who works in a bookstore, plays pub trivia, and loves office supplies. As long as she's got her book clubs and her daily planner, she's happy and confident and hardly ever has panic attacks anymore. Quite satisfied with her life, Nina is thrown for a loop when her father dies (especially since she never knew him) and she discovers she's inherited a family she's not sure she wants. It doesn't help that the best-looking guy she's met in a while is her biggest rival on the trivia competition circuit, and Tom is appealing for more than just his sports knowledge. Readers will be captivated by Nina's droll sense of humor and sympathize with her tendency towards anxiety. But Nina's no wallflower, and they'll cheer her on as she stands up to her new family and steps into a new relationship with Tom. Waxman's (Other People's Houses, 2018) perspective includes a wry narration of Nina's life as well as getting into Nina's head, and it's this style that will continue to build her deserved readership.--Tracy Babiasz Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this love letter to book nerds, Waxman (The Garden of Small Beginnings) introduces the extraordinary introvert Nina Hill. Nina, who grew up on the east side of L.A. in Larchmont, Calif., has never wanted to leave her hometown. She loves her apartment, with its shelves of books; her cat; and her job as a clerk at a book shop. Filling her time with trivia nights, movies, book club, yoga class, and, of course, reading, she feels she has the perfect life. Then, one day at work, a lawyer shows up and tells her of the death of the father she never knew and the existence of his huge extended family. As Nina gets to know her newfound relatives, who all live in Southern California, she also notices a handsome and charming trivia rival, Tom, who seems to be taking an equal interest in Nina. With witty dialogue and a running sarcastic inner monologue ("Moms of a certain age know dozens of people through various channels, so they have to perform this human form of canine butt sniffing all the goddamn time"), Waxman brings Nina to vibrant life as she upends her introverted routine and become part of the family. Fans of Jojo Moyes will love this. (July) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
