Everyone Else's Girl is the critically-acclaimed second novel by author Megan Crane, out now in the UK.
Megan didn't stop there. This USA Today bestselling author has written five women’s fiction novels, many work-for-hire young adult novels, and five category romances (under the name Caitlin Crews) since publishing her first book in 2004. Her novel, Frenemies, was a BookSense Notable in July 2007.
I follow her on Live Journal, where we know here as megancrane. I'm amazed at how much work she is clearly doing - and excited about a new book idea she recently posted about that I must admit made me jealous.
About the book
Meredith does things for other people. She irons clothes for her boyfriend, she attends her ex-best friend's horrendous hen party for her brother (who's about to marry the girl) and she moves back to her parents' house to look after her dad when his leg is broken. She's a good girl and that matters. But when she gets back home, all is not as Meredith remembered. Especially Scott, that geeky teenager from her old class at school. He's definitely different now. And so, it seems, is she. One by one, her family and old friends start to tell her some home truths and Meredith begins to realize she's not so perfect after all. Maybe it is time she stopped being everyone else's girl and started living for herself...
Praise for Everyone Else’s Girl
"Megan Crane rules! Cancel your evening plans: You won't want to stop reading until you've devoured every delicious word." —Meg Cabot
"Amusing, heartfelt and emotionally sophisticated chick-lit." —Kirkus
"Crane prevails with refreshingly real human emotions and reactions. In this book, actions have consequences, and no one gets off easy, despite appearances." —RT BookClub
"I suspect a lot of readers were like me – desperately seeking fiction with a romantic edge, realistic stories, and smart writing (oh, for more smart writing). I suspect a lot of readers were like me and dropped out of chicklit game because finding the good was damn hard work. I dedicate this review to those readers. There is hope...Everyone Else's Girl is a good book." —Kassia Krozser at paperbackreader.com
