FAKE PLASTIC LOVE: LOOKING FOR AN ADVENTUREOUS VENTURE?

FAKE PLASTIC LOVE BY KIMBERLEY TAIT—NO WAY IS THIS A FIRST BOOK—

Shocked that Fake Plastic Love is Kimberley Tait’s first novel. It certainly didn’t seem like a first book, it was written so well, I was shocked that it is a first venture into adventure. I found it delightful, hilarious, well written, fantastic and a journey of young twenty somethings going through the arduous task of growing up. Do any of us really want to leave the safety net of college, get jobs and start working at jobs where we are treated like crap?

Tait’s main character M. wants it all and she wants it all upon graduation, but she is not a spoiled, pampered college graduate who thinks a great job should be bestowed upon her, M. works hard in the financial district while her best friend, Belle works really hard at creating a new age blog for hipsters.

Tait writes so convincingly, I zoomed ahead, reading at a fast running cheetah’s pace, plunging ahead, reading faster than a speeding bullet. Fake Plastic Love is a beautifully written story for just about any age group, not just for college age peeps.
M. becomes friends in college with Belle. They are complete opposites. M. wants to stay in the safety net established at college, but graduates nonetheless and gets a job in the financial district right away at the best firm in New York City. Belle is a free thinking girl who never seems to want to grow up. Belle starts one of the first successful fashion blogs, is intrinsically artistic and is continually living the life of a successful fashionista.
M. lives the life of a hard working female working in a man’s world, when she finds she is starting to fall for one of the guys she works with and guess who comes along and sweeps him away from her adoring arms, without seemingly any effort at all?

Kimberley Tait has written a beautiful book filled with witty witiscims we will all see ourselves in, and how we all want out lives to be, or do we? Momzinga.com.
