Hilarious book!

Stupid and Contagious
by Caprice Crane

This has got to be one of the funniest books I have read in a long time (thanks, Krista!).  Recently fired from a top PR firm, Heaven is now waitressing at a trendy restaurant in NYC.  She is a major fan of music and is convinced she will die at the age of 27 if not married.  This fear is based on the fact that several of music's greats (Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin) died at 27.  Brady, wannabe inventor and non-successful musical producer, just moved in to Heaven's apartment complex after breaking up with his psycho girlfriend and leaving HIS rent-controlled place.  The two become friends and end up trekking across the country to find Brady a new band and help him market his unique invention, Cinnamilk. Told in alternating points of view, this book will keep readers in stitches with tales of Heaven's antics and Brady's inability to stay away from her.  This is an adult romantic comedy and some of the situations are mature, but the author, in my opinion, doesn't "push the envelope" too much.  Recommended for those who can handle mature situations and want to laugh.
