“WILL YOU WON'T YOU WANT ME?” is a Stress Relieving Book for a Romantic Heart
Anxiety is a disorder that many people cope with daily. It had a major impact on the lives of over 40 million Americans last year, and who knows how many more minor impacts. Reading is said to be a great stress reliever and reducer of anxiety.
“WILL YOU WON'T YOU WANT ME” Synopsis:
Marjorie Plum never meant to peak in high school. She was queen bee. Now, 10 years later, she's lost her sparkle. At her bleakest moment, she’s surprised by renewed interest from a questionable childhood crush, and the bickering with her cranky boss—at a potentially game-changing new job—grows increasingly like flirtatious banter. Suddenly, she’s faced with a choice between the life she always dreamed of and one she never thought to imagine. With the help of a precocious 11-year-old tutee, who unknowingly becomes the Ghost of Marjorie Past, and a musician roommate, who looks like a pixie and talks like the Dalai Lama, Marjorie struggles with the ultimate question: Who does she want to be? Nora Zelevansky’s Will You Won’t You Want Me? is a funny, often surprising, novel about growing up when you are already supposed to be grown.
“Funny, sexy, and packed with perfect poignant insight that will resonate with readers of any age. I LOVED this book and didn’t want it to end. Reading Zelevansky’s prose felt like watching 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'—Marjorie is so utterly captivating and endearing that even when she’s flailing you don’t want to miss a second of it!”—Nicola Kraus, New York Times bestselling co-author of The Nanny Diaries and Nanny Returns
“Will You Won't You Want Me? achieves that rare combination of razor-sharp wit and romance - a love story that's not afraid to be smart, satirical and wise. Nora Zelevansky's mesmerizing writing captivates from page one.” —Cara Lockwood, USA Today bestselling author of I Do (But I Don't)
“Nora Zelevansky deftly explores the ups and downs of a young woman learning that the first step toward real love lies in coming to love one's true self.” —Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, New York Times bestselling author of Bittersweet
