Description

Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder, coworkers at "The Courier," know the newspaper monitors their of?ce e-mail. But they still spend all day sending each other messages, gossiping about their coworkers, and baring their personal lives like an open book. Jennifer tells Beth everything she can t seem to tell her husband about her anxieties over starting a family. And Beth tells Jennifer everything, period.

Meanwhile, Lincoln O Neill still can t believe that it's his job to monitor other people's e-mail. When he applied to be an Internet security officer, he pictured himself protecting the newspaper from dangerous hackers not sending out memos every time somebody in Accounting forwarded an off-color joke to the person in the next cubicle.

Lincoln is supposed to turn people in for misusing company e-mail, but he can t quite bring himself to crack down on Beth and Jennifer. He can t help being entertained and captivated by their stories. But by the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late for him to ever introduce himself. What would he say to her? Hi, I m the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you?

With snapping dialogue and irresistible charm, Rainbow Rowell transforms an ordinary IT guy into a lovable and endearing romantic hero and proves that falling in love never happens the way you plan it. Written with whip-smart precision and charm, Attachments is a fresh and energetic debut that marks the arrival of an exciting new voice in ?ction.




About the Author
RAINBOW ROWELL writes books. Sometimes she writes about adults ("Attachments" and "Landline"). Sometimes she writes about teenagers ("Eleanor & Park", "Fangirl "and "Carry On"). But she always writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they're screwing up. And people who fall in love.

When she's not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that don't really matter in the big scheme of things.

She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons.



Laura Hamilton is Assistant Professor of Sociology at University of California, Merced.
