Forget About It

Jordan Landau is having a bad life. At twenty-five, she is attractive, smart, funny and talented. But all that doesn’t keep her mother from calling her fat, her boss from stealing her ideas, and her boyfriend from cheating on her. Day in and day out, she sits back and watches as everyone walks all over her. Then one day while riding her bike home from a particularly awful day, Jordan collides with a car door and is knocked clear off her bicycle. Coming to in the hospital, Jordan realizes she has a perfect excuse for a “do-over”; she vows to fake amnesia and reinvent herself. And it works. Finally, Jordan is able to get the credit she deserves at work, and she stands up to her family and her jerk boyfriend. She’s living the life she always dreamed of–until the unthinkable happens. Suddenly Jordan must start over for real, and figure out what really makes her happy–and how to live a truly memorable life.

From Publishers Weekly
Jordan Landau has a crap job, a shrewish boss and a dud boyfriend, but when she gets hit by a car and takes a nasty knock to her noggin, things start to look up in Crane’s bubbly second novel (after Stupid and Contagious). Jordan, she of the nutty family and unsatisfying junior copywriting job, fakes amnesia and parlays her condition into a better position at the ad agency where she works, a better boyfriend (longtime beau Dirk, who is one-note awful, also tries to take full carnal advantage of Jordan’s amnesia, but fails) and an all-around better lifestyle. The setup generates a few chuckles, but no real surprises. Readers in the mood for a light and goofy romantic comedy will find a thin one between these covers.

If the Book Had a Soundtrack

“Heart, soul, savage wit and breathtaking tenderness – sometimes all in the same sentence. Caprice Crane has romantic comedy in her DNA.”
- Jeff Arch, Oscar-Nominated Screenwriter, Sleepless In Seattle

“Funny, insightful, and exquisitely fresh…one of those rare novels that you have to be compelled by starvation, exhaustion, or a house fire to want to put down. I’ve found a new source for reliably great reads in Caprice Crane!”
- Lani Diane Rich, award-winning author of Ex and the Single Girl and The Fortune Quilt

“Funny without ever being fluffy, this tale of re-invention and re-birth is delightful from start to finish. Makes me wish I had amnesia myself, just so I could start again at the beginning and read the whole thing all over again!”
