They can. Because:

  • that employee is now suing Kate for wrongfultermination, and
  • now Kate has to give a deposition in front ofMitch Hertzog, the scion of one of Manhattan's wealthiest law families,who embraces everything Kate most despises … but also happens to have a nice smile and a killer bod.

Boy Meets Girl is a modernized epistolary novel. So, the text is composed of emails, journals, notes between characters, etc. The format is very interesting, and it is a generally good story. As the title tells us, it's the basic "boy meets girl" tale. However, the format kicks it up a notch. I would recommend it for light, entertaining reading.read more

An adult Meg Cabot title this is told in the form of emails, IM's, letters, diary entries and other such items that doccument the life and woes of Kate MacKenzie. There are times that you wonder why she would be writing at this time but this is the pivot around which the book is written.The other two main characters are Ida Lopez, a provider of cakes to those she deems worthy and when she refuses Stuart Hertzog, a lawyer one of her cakes it sets in motion a series of events that cause Katie to come into contact with Mitch Hertzog, the brother of that lawyer and a completely different person.read more

Like the book e, this is also a modern epistolatory novel. Told through e-mail, instant-messenger conversations, journal entries, and memos, the action is quite fast-paced, and the book is an easy read. It's cute, but by no means does it require much thought.

This was listed as recommended reading in the chicklit genre, which I haven't read a lot in, but I did love Bridget Jones Diary, the template for this sort of fiction. Like that book, this is about life, love and career from a female point of view in a contemporary urban setting, in this case New York City. Also like Bridget Jones it's fluffy and light, and in an unconventional narrative structure. The book opens with a draft business letter, complete with strike outs, by twenty-something Kate MacKenzie of human resources at a New York City newspaper. She works for a boss known as T.O.D. among her colleagues (Tyrannical Office Despot) and gets involved in a lawsuit (and with the lawyer involved). There are some smile-worthy and witty lines, but the format irritated me. There aren't just letters but to-do-lists, transcripts of instant messages, phone messages, meetings, dispositions, as well as emails, signs, menus, receipts, reports, memos, journal entries (in script font)--a dizzying array of formats that unlike Bridget Jones diary entries left me increasingly annoyed and unable to settle into the story. Too fluffy, too far-fetched, too reminiscent of teen fan fiction for my tastes.

I thought that this was a very easy, humorous read. It's the type of book that keeps you laughing and not wanting to put it down. Cabot creates these characters, such as Kate, that you want to sympathize with. They seem like your friend that you want to hang out with and continue to read about and help solve their problem. Boy Meets Girl is not your traditional type of book. This is a book that is written in well thought out emails and voicemails, and Cabot does it in such a way that allows you to get intimate with Kate.
