This novel follows Mia and Mac through the hilariously frustrating process of buying and renovating their first home in a Chicago suburb that was made famous by Sixteen Candles. Their tales include grumpy neighbors, a crazy ex- landlady, and many tales of DIY construction/renovation.
I love Jen Lancaster’s memoirs. I’ve been anticipating her debut novel, If You Were Here. It’s loosely based on her life so it reads a lot like her memoirs. I recommend giving this a read if you like her other books.
