Product Description:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Part love story, part workplace drama, this sharply observed novel is a witty critique of the false judgments we make in a social-media-obsessed world. New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella has written her most timely novel yet.

Everywhere Katie Brenner looks, someone else is living the life she longs for, particularly her boss, Demeter Farlowe. Demeter is brilliant and creative, lives with her perfect family in a posh townhouse, and wears the coolest clothes. Katie’s life, meanwhile, is a daily struggle—from her dismal rental to her oddball flatmates to the tense office politics she’s trying to negotiate. No wonder Katie takes refuge in not-quite-true Instagram posts, especially as she's desperate to make her dad proud.

Then, just as she’s finding her feet—not to mention a possible new romance—the worst happens. Demeter fires Katie. Shattered but determined to stay positive, Katie retreats to her family’s farm in Somerset to help them set up a vacation business. London has never seemed so far away—until Demeter unexpectedly turns up as a guest. Secrets are spilled and relationships rejiggered, and as the stakes for Katie’s future get higher, she must question her own assumptions about what makes for a truly meaningful life.

Sophie Kinsella is celebrated for her vibrant, relatable characters and her great storytelling gifts. Now she returns with all of the wit, warmth, and wisdom that are the hallmarks of her bestsellers to spin this fresh, modern story about presenting the perfect life when the reality is far from the truth.

Praise for My Not So Perfect Life

“A sparkling, witty novel about social media and the stories we tell ourselves.”People (Book of the Week)

“The soul of this book concerns female friendship. . . . What ensues has a touch of real wisdom [and] will satisfy Kinsella diehards as well as new readers.”—The Washington Post

“You’ll relate hard and root harder for Londoner Katie, whose quarterlife crisis feels even worse thanks to the Insta-perfect people all around her.”Cosmopolitan

“A joy to read . . . Themes of friendship, love and living your true life rise to the top.”—USA Today

“[There are ] many laugh-out-loud hilarious moments in this feel-good novel about social media and personal branding, and the hectic realities behind our perfect online lives.”Bustle

“Pure escapist fun.”PopSugar

“Sophie Kinsella keeps her finger on the cultural pulse, while leaving me giddy with laughter. I loved it.”—Jojo Moyes

“Katie is a winning heroine. . . . Kinsella creates characters that are well-rounded, quirky, and a complete joy to read.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Driven by Katie’s witty observations and numerous missteps as she attempts to reconcile various aspects of her identity, this novel is smartly satirical and entertaining.”Publishers Weekly

“Another outstanding novel . . . a perfect combination of fun, laughable moments rounded out with some deep-seated family and relationship issues.”Booklist

Katie Brenner’s plan to rebrand her life as Cat Brenner is finally on track. Katie is finally living in the city of her dreams: London! Okay, the commute to work from her flat is less than ideal, but still, London! Katie has a job at a cool marketing agency: Cooper Clemmow. Granted, she is at the bottom rung, and her boss Demeter Farlowe can’t remember her name; but still it’s a great start! And Katie just met a dishy guy at work, who just might turn out to be the one! Fingers crossed! However, when Katie’s new life comes crashing down around her, will she have the courage to pick herself up, dust herself off, and use the skills she learned in London to create a future for herself she never would have ever imagined?

Readers love Kinsella’s novels for their breezy sense of humor and effortless sense of charm, and My (Not So) Perfect Life is chock-a-block with both those literary qualities. Kinsella imbues her writing with a deliciously dry sense of wit, and she gifts readers with an endearingly flawed yet always plucky protagonist, whom it is so easy to love. What may surprise some readers, however, it that amidst all the entertaining scenes, cleverly worded dialogue, and effervescent writing, Kinsella manages to skillfully slip in some real pearls of wisdom about the truly important things in life like family and friends as well as quietly demonstrate just how anyone’s life might seem to be perfect when viewed from the outside.
