"Hi, I''m the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you . . . "
From the award-winning author of Eleanor & Park, Fangirl, and Landline comes a hilarious and heartfelt novel about love in the workplace.
Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It''s company policy.) But they can''t quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.
Meanwhile, Lincoln O''Neill can''t believe this is his job now- reading other people''s e-mail. When he applied to be "internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.
When Lincoln comes across Beth''s and Jennifer''s messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can''t help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.
By the time Lincoln realizes he''s falling for Beth, it''s way too late to introduce himself.
What would he say . . . ?
