"A funny, bittersweet, yet heartwarming novel about friendship, family, and finding love in the Facebook age--not to mention the perils, pitfalls, and dubious pleasures of life as a modern young single woman--from Erin Duffy, the author of the acclaimed Bond GirlEver since she was a little girl, Abby Wilkes dreamed of her wedding, the day when she'd wear a pretty white dress and look like a princess.But that was before her life fell apart for the entire world to see. Her longtime boyfriend-turned-fiance;, Ben, unceremoniously dumped her--changing his status to single on Facebook--while she was trying on the most gorgeous Vera Wang dress for the big day. Six months and twenty pounds later, the usual remedies--cupcakes, a freezer stocked with pints of Ben and Jerry's, sweatpants, and a comfy couch--haven't worked their magic. Worried about her best friend, Grace devises the perfect plan to get Abby back on her game. The two of them are going to escape sweltering Boston and its reminders of Ben and head to Newport for the summer. In a quaint rented cottage by the sea, the girls will enjoy cool breezes, cocktails, and crowds of gorgeous men. But no matter which way they turn, Abby and Grace discover that in this era of social media--when seemingly everyone is preserving every last detail of their lives online and prying eyes are everywhere--there is no real escape. Truth to tell, dating has never been easy. But now that the rules have changed and the boundaries are blurred beyond recognition, will they ever find true love? And if they do, how can romance stand a chance when a girl's every word and move can go viral with a single click? As the summer winds down to Labor Day, Abby will make some surprising discoveries--about love, men, friendship. and, most important, herself. "--
