Frances Banks has given herself a deadline: three years to make it as an actress in New York or she’s moving home to marry her college sweetheart and be a teacher. There are only six months left and all she’s done is one commercial. She just needs a break. And an agent. But just when things are looking up, they inevitably come crashing back down.
As many of you know, I ADORE Gilmore Girls. So when I heard that Lauren Graham had a book coming out, I was instantly interested. And a little skeptical. I love Lauren Graham, the actress, but I didn’t know Lauren Graham, the writer.
Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised. After a slow start, I grew to love Franny and found myself invested in her story, cheering at her successes and sighing at her failures.
I found it somewhat predictable, like her choosing the wrong-for-her man while the right-for-her one waits in the wings. And some of her decisions frustrated me to no end. But Franny is finding herself so I guess that is par for the course (she even makes these same criticisms of a romantic comedy in the book…meta).
But overall, this was a fun, enjoyable read. Fellow Gilmore Girls fans, go right ahead and pick this one up.
