This unforgettable debut novel asks us to look up from our screens and out at the world . . . and to imagine what life would be like with no searches, no status updates, no texts, no Tweets, no pins, and no posts

Evie Rosen has had enough. She's tired of the partners at her law firm e-mailing her at all hours of the night. The thought of another online date makes her break out in a cold sweat. She's over the clever hashtags and the endless selfies. So when her career hits a surprising roadblock and her heart is crushed by Facebook, Evie decides it's time to put down her smartphone for good. (Beats stowing it in her underwear—she's done that too!)

And that's when she discovers a fresh start for real conversations, fewer distractions, and living in the moment, even if the moments are heartbreakingly difficult. Babies are born; marriages teeter; friendships are tested. Evie may find love and a new direction when she least expects it, but she also learns that just because you unplug your phone doesn't mean you can also unplug from life.

Customer Reviews of Love And Miss Communication: A Novel

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The fluff that I wanted I read this in the month following my son's birth, and it was exactly what I needed at thhe time: a fluffy novel that I didn't need to think too hard about, but didn't infuriate me with terrible writing. It was cute, amusing, and reasonably clever. The protagonist takes a break from all kinds of social media after losing her job, which is something that maybe we all need to think about doing from time to time. I would totally read another. Ok by this author. #plumreview
