About the Book
Twenty-four-year-old Eve is finally making headway as an actress in Los Angeles. But when life turns upside down in less than 24 hours – leaving her without a job, car or home – she decides to move to New York where her boyfriend Pavlos lives. Unfortunately, Pavlos doesn’t recall inviting her. Thus, Eve arrives Manhattan homeless. Once she lands, it’s survival of the fittest as her attempts to make Manhattan her new home – and reunite with Pavlos or not – are fraught with upending yet hysterical encounters with the often unsavory vanguard of the city.
