My Life on Craigslist

Alexandra Aresz. CreateSpace, $13.95 paper (204p) ISBN 978-1-4609-8582-3
In her latest novel, Ares (Dream Junkies) offers up chick lit with a twist: Emily Thompson is a 25-year-old dreamer who quits a bank job in Buffalo, N.Y., and moves to New York City to make use of her art background. Emily soon learns that Manhattan is every bit as tough as she's always been told—evidenced by her losing both her art gallery job and her cheating artist boyfriend, Toby. Emily turns to Craigslist and decides to use the site to figure out her next career and personal moves—a decision yielding disastrous results. While Ares's novel would have benefited greatly from professional copy editing, the author nails the cold, callous place New York City can be and highlights the always surprising things that can be found on Craigslist.
