Mia has no doubt that she and her husband, Mac, can win a war of spray-painted words with the young thug who keeps tagging their property. After all, they're gainfully employed, college-educated Chicagoans. Mia even makes a living churning out popular teen Amish-zombie romances. But the charm of living in the city has definitely worn off, driving them to pack it all in, round up their pets, and move to the suburbs that John Hughes's movies made famous.
"Every bit as funny, wicked, and lovable as her bestselling memoirs." Valerie Frankel. "Fans of John Hughes will be delighted by the eighties film references, but the book also stands alone as a timeless soon-to-be classic." Caprice Crane Known for her hilariously witty New York Times bestselling memoirs, Jen Lancaster has now written a histerical debut novel about a couple, their suburban dream - and a DIY nightmare.
