Reviews

"An original, witty piece of celibate chick lit. Baker is a fish-out-of-water Mormon NYU grad who loses 80 pounds, tries acting and stand-up comedy and, as you learn in the acknowledgments, ends up chummy with Elizabeth Swados and Ira Glass. She has a genuine but funny take on faith."--The Boston Globe

"If I told you that Elna Baker had written a frank and self-deprecating memoir about dating which is unlike any other frank and self-deprecating memoir about dating, you probably would not believe me. However, Baker is a Mormon. A peachy, astute, witty 27-year-old Mormon who has never had sex."--Louise France, The Observer (England) "A funny, touching story about coming to the big city, where she loses the certainty of her beliefs, if not her way."--Sherryl Connelly, New York Daily News "A wickedly funny debut. Baker is both self-absorbed and generous, whip-smart and na ve; she apologizes for none of it."--People
