'I am sitting on my living room sofa, trying to give advice to a great grandniece I've never met. I started out writing to my great granddaughter. But the way my love life's going lately, the poor dear is nothing more than a pipe dream. I'm now betting on my engaged sister's chances of procreation - hence, the great grandniece. What am I writing? Pretty much anything I wish I had known at sixteen, and wish I could force myself to remember at twenty-nine...Some days are a total waste of make-up!' Charlize "Charlie" Edwards certainly knows what it takes to lead a successful and happy life. She owns a nice house in LA's trendiest neighborhood, has a group of glamorous and loyal friends who accompany her to the hottest clubs in town, and she works as the personal assistant to Hollywood's sexiest - and most insecure - movie star. But she's also turning 30, chronically single, and faced with serving time as matron of honor at her younger sister's wedding. Charlie finds herself juggling her eccentric family, all-consuming job and lunatic boss, and a serious crush on a man who might actually return her feelings.
Humor and honesty go hand in hand as we watch Charlie attempt to write a book of advice that she can't seem to follow and end up finding love almost in spite of herself.
