Publisher's Summary

The pathos of Beautiful Ruins meets the hilarity of Crazy Rich Asians in this comedic and tender novel.
Their meeting in a parking lot outside a high school football game was both completely forgettable and utterly life changing. Because no matter how you look at it, it is piss-poor luck to meet the love of your life before your life has even started.
Fierce and ambitious, Alison is determined to shed her Midwestern roots and emerge an actress. Kyle, all heart and spiritual yearning, believes medicine can heal the world. What could these mismatched souls have to do with each other? Everything and nothing. Even as their fates rocket them forward and apart, neither can fully let go of the past.
When Alison gets her lucky break in New York City, she ends up on the fast track to stardom and a world far more different from Cincinnati than she could have ever imagined. Back home in Ohio, Kyle has a shotgun wedding and starts a pediatric practice in suburban hell. While Kyle's dreams begin to molder, Alison learns that the spotlight is always circled by shadows. As their lives inevitably intersect, Alison and Kyle must face each other in the revealing light of their decisions.
I'm Glad About You is a glittering study of how far the compromises two people make will take them from the lives they were meant to live.

A smart, touching, entertaining read

Upon first glance, "I'm Glad About You" might seen yet another in a long list of "chick lit" books. However, reading it will eventually prove that, much like show business (which permeates the novel) there is more beneath the surface. I strongly recommend this book for anyone who has ever wondered about the paths our lives take and the choices we make along the way.

No protagonist. Just okay. Wouldn't recommend.

This story was odd for me. There weren't any characters I found myself routing for...no real protagonist. Just okay. Wouldn't recommend.
