Lizzie Nichols has big plans when she finally moves to New York City. At last, it feels like her life is coming together. She has a boyfriend she adores, Luke, a best friend she plans to move in with, and she knows her wedding dress repair shop dream will be a success!

Of course, New York City has its own plans and it may just spit Lizzie out before her dreams come true. But in the mean time she has moved in with Luke because when he asked her, she just couldnít resist. And while her plans of her own business are a bit rocky right now, she has taken a temporary job as a receptionist while she unwittingly volunteers at a prestigious wedding gown restoration business where the owners definitely abuse her talents.

Lizzie is having the time of her life, well, kind of, but her optimistic personality makes even a dire situation seem sunny. Meg Cabot has invested Lizzie with humor, resiliency, dedication, and a love for gossip that she is trying very hard to resist, and boy, does she have a few incredible secrets floating in her head. I found Queen of Babble in the Big City to be even more fun than its original. Lizzie is a tad more mature but she hasnít lost the enjoyable qualities that made her such a fun character.

Written in the first person, Lizzie Nichols will easily hook readers into her world as she tackles competing wedding businesses, a prestigious law firm, her best friendís troubles, and a myriad of other plot details that make the pages of Queen of Babble in the Big City seem to fly by. Entertaining, amusing and completely irresistible!
