The F Word
A NovelBook - 2017
A celebrity publicist in Los Angeles is forced to confront the staggering truth that her glittering, high profile success hasn’t brought her happiness when her former high school crush and arch nemesis suddenly reenters her life. Original.
“We’re all pushing some version of the life we want you to believe. It’s all just PR.”
Olivia Morten is perfect. Maybe her high-flying publicist job has taken over her life, but her clients are L.A.’s hottest celebrities. Maybe her husband is never around, but he is a drop-dead-gorgeous, successful doctor. Maybe her friends are dumb, but they know how to look glamorous at a cocktail party. And maybe her past harbors an incredibly embarrassing secret, but no one remembers high school…right?
When Ben Dunn, Olivia’s high school arch nemesis and onetime crush, suddenly resurfaces, Olivia realizes how precarious all of her perfection is. As she finds herself dredging up long-suppressed memories from her past, she is forced to confront the most painful truth of all: maybe she used to be the fat girl, but she used to be happy, too.
At once a funny, whip-smart sendup of L.A. culture and an irresistible love story, The F Word is a novel about how sometimes who we become isn’t who we really are.
