"Often amusing, somewhat serious chick-lit tale"
With work a bloody bore, twenty nothing Anna Koval teaches
herself how to use HTML. She begins writing a journal
about slut Barbies, her last relationship with her former
boyfriend Ian that seems such ancient times in retrospect,
and other tales under the byline of Anna K. Feeling no one
but her pal would ever peruse her mumbo jumbo hyperbole
autobiographic stew, Anna still plugs away at her stories
everyday at work. Her keyboard never stops clicking so
that peers and management believe she is the hardest worker
in the firm.
To Anna's shock, she soon receives email as she has begun
to have a fan base. One particular person wants to get to
know her better. Anna fears he will reject the real Koval
as not being on a par with the mythical Anna K even if
LDobler sounds like he is falling in love with Anna as she
herself wonders will the real Anna please stand up.
WHY GIRLS ARE WEIRD is chick lit novel meets the
information age as the amusing heroine bares her soul to
the world, but wonders whose life is surfacing. The
journal entries enable the audience to see up front and
personal the essence of Anna to the nth degree while the
email from her fans especially LDobler provides the means
for the reader to comprehend his motives and desires.
Readers will enjoy this often amusing, somewhat serious
look at how women are becoming weirdly wired.
