Synopsis

After completing her magnum opus – an angsty, bitter novel about life’s inherent unfairness – Emma writes a second book for her own amusement, a send-up of the “chick-lit” genre entitled Chelsea Perkins.  She plans to discard the manuscript, but when her sister submits it without her knowledge, the book is surprisingly accepted.  Emma then meets Rob, a charming, intelligent young publisher, and soon her new fairy-tale life begins to resemble the same fantasy world she only previously imagined.
