Someday, Someday Maybe by Lauren Graham This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

March 1, 2014

I will be honest: I wanted to read this book because Lauren Graham, who played Lorelai on “Gilmore Girls,” wrote it. I have watched her on television and in movies for as long as I can remember, but had no idea she was a writer. I was quickly engrossed in this story of the ups and downs of the New York acting world.

Someday, Someday, Maybe is the story of Franny Banks, a struggling actress in New York City, with just six months left of the three-year deadline she gave herself to succeed. So far, all she has to show for her efforts are an ad for ugly Christmas sweaters and a degrading waitressing job.

Life is heavy. Literature is heavy. Yet, this book is a light and incredibly fun read. I could not have been happier I picked up this book.

This is chick lit at its finest: an uplifting story of what it takes to achieve your heart’s desires. Graham writes with passion, soul, and honesty – not to mention, she’s hilarious.

If you are a fan of Lauren Graham the actress, be prepared to be a fan of Lauren Graham the author. Someday, Someday, Maybe received a Goodreads Choice Award nomination for Best Fiction in 2013, and a TV adaptation is planned. I’m looking forward to another book by Graham; one will be released someday, someday maybe.

Very well done! You do a good job of advertising the book, you come from an interesting angle, and manage to capture the essence of the book (I think; I haven't read it) without giving anything away. It's well-written, well-described, and you did a fantastic job!
