Someday, Someday, Maybe - Lauren Graham Short and Sweet:I adored this story almost as much as I adore Lauren Graham herself. Someday, Someday, Maybe is the sweet, unassuming story of Franny Banks finding her way in life: self, career, love, etc. It's hilarious, heartbreaking, and most of all a lot of fun. If you aren't already a fan of Lauren Graham... you will be after reading this fantastic book!To Elaborate....First of all, Someday, Someday, Maybe is not *gasp* YA. However, I honestly think that anyone who loves contemporary YA will love it. Second, I am a huge fan of Lauren Graham so I was really excited that she wrote a book. If you are also a fan, you will find a similar sincere, but humorous tone to Someday, Someday, Maybe that makes Lauren Graham so easy to love.Franny is an aspiring actress living in New York trying to make her dreams come true, but she's coming close to the 3 year deadline she gave herself to 'make it.' After a Showcase performance that 'showcased' her klutzy side she suprisingly gets two call backs from potential agents. The agents couldn't be more different; an element also present in her love life. While she fights against being a 'cliche' and attempts to figure out what exactly it is that she wants she discovers that she is more than capable of living the life she desires.I seriously have all my fingers crossed that Lauren will write another book. Franny was so well developed and 'real' that reading that final page felt like saying goodbye to a friend. Her struggle to make decisions that were true to herself is one we can all identify with. I'd love to read what happens next!(Originally published @iheartyafiction.blogspot.com)
