    1. Simon Lipson's 2nd book was every bit as good as his first - which I loved!His main character is sardonic yet lovable and you find yourself rooting for him as he tries to make it in the world of comedy. He captures the ever-changing moods of a teenage daughter perfectly, eye rolls included. A thoroughly enjoyable and funny "semi-romantic" read. Highly recommended.
