Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella

Front and back Flaps: With the same wicked humor, buoyant charm, and optimism that have made her Shopaholic novels beloved international bestsellers, Sophie Kinsella delivers a hilarious new novel and an unforgettable new character. Meet Emma Corrigan, a young woman with a huge heart, an irrepressible spirit, and a few little secrets: Secrets from her mother: I lost my virginity in the spare bedroom with Danny Nussbaum while Mum and Dad were downstairs watching Ben-Hur. Sammy the goldfish in my parents' kitchen is not the same goldfish that Mum gave me to look after when she and Dad were in Egypt. Secrets from her boyfriend: I weight one hundred and twenty-eight pounds. Not on eightenn, like Connor thinks. I've always thought Connor looks a bit like Ken. As in Barbie and Ken. From her colleagues: When Artemis really annoys me, I feed her plant orange juice. (Which is pretty much every day.) It was me who jammed the copier that time. In fact, all the times. Secrets she wouldn't share with anyone in the world: My G-string is hurting me. I have no idea what NATO stands for. Or even what it is. Until she spills them all to a handsome stranger on a plane. At least, she thought he was a stranger... But come Monday morning, Emma's office is abuzz about the arrival of Jack Harper, the company's exclusive CEO. Suddenly Emma is face-to-face with the stranger from the plane, a man who knows every single humiliating detail about her. Things couldn't possibly get worse. Until they do... I absolutely loved this book! It really reminded me of Confessions of a Shopaholic the way that Emma acted and said things, but it's so fun! Like such a fun woman to be and even though she did make mistakes and go through alot of things, in the end she was ok! But it was great, and it's still funny little things they say like the loo and I don't remember what else but it's so cute! haha
