The Friend Zone - Nicole Strycharz Summary
Chloe: Moses has been my best friend since kindergarten. We met when I shoved him face first in the dirt and took his action figures. Ever since, we've been tighter than blood, but we're not blood, and my body knows that. My heart has known that for years. The fact that being a pole dancer has interfered with my relationship status is an understatement. Moses is literally the longest I've been with a man, except I'm not really 'with' him. Now I'm approaching a place where I'm curious enough to tell him about my feelings. I've gotten close, but a man as hot as my bestie has had really small gaps between girlfriends. I know it could be a big mistake, and he's never seen me that way, but I won't know for sure unless I act right? Only problem is, I might be too late again. Moses: I'm not blind to the fact that my best friend is dangerously hot. She's basically every man's dream but she's not mine. I'm the one that protects her, councils her, and encourages her, knowing she will do the same for me. She's my girl. But now something is different, and I can't put a name to it. Something feels changed, but I'm putting all that on the back burner because I think I found my perfect girlfriend. Still, Chloe is in my head; I'm not sure she would handle knowing that. After all, I'm in the friend zone...
How to Be Alone - Lane Moore Summary
The former Sex & Relationships Editor for Cosmopolitan and host of the wildly popular comedy show Tinder Live with Lane Moore presents her poignant, funny, and deeply moving first book. Lane Moore is a rare performer who is as impressive onstage—whether hosting her iconic show Tinder Live or being the enigmatic front woman of It Was Romance—as she is on the page, as both a former writer for The Onion and an award-winning sex and relationships editor for Cosmopolitan. But her story has had its obstacles, including being her own parent, living in her car as a teenager, and moving to New York City to pursue her dreams. Through it all, she looked to movies, TV, and music as the family and support systems she never had. From spending the holidays alone to having better “stranger luck” than with those closest to her to feeling like the last hopeless romantic on earth, Lane reveals her powerful and entertaining journey in all its candor, anxiety, and ultimate acceptance—with humor always her bolstering force and greatest gift. How to Be Alone is a must-read for anyone whose childhood still feels unresolved, who spends more time pretending to have friends online than feeling close to anyone in real life, who tries to have genuine, deep conversations in a roomful of people who would rather you not. Above all, it’s a book for anyone who desperately wants to feel less alone and a little more connected through reading her words.
