THIS LIFE ISN'T PERFECT HOLLA
In her debut, Foy finds that "wow" factor that makes readers herald a writer's work. First-person point of view and active dialogue grant readers intimate access to whimsical, poignant and soul-searching moments that unveil a cascade of romance and duplicity. Foy is assuredly an astounding new voice in women's fiction.
She gets fired, spirals into depression, loses her children to her estranged husband and discovers the missing file is a federal case. But she rebounds and becomes adamant about clearing her name. The courage and support of family and friends are crucial to her success; their lives depend on it. (Genesis/indigo, Nov., 304 pp., $6.99)
