The F Word

“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?

“Palmer’s likable characters and snappy dialogue make this novel stand out from the crowd, and it’s sure to attract fans of Jennifer Weiner and other authors who offer slightly imperfect heroines. Palmer manages to infuse a message of self–acceptance that isn’t heavy-handed or cloying.” —Booklist
