9780060732097: The Pajama Game

When Moxie Brecker chose her kicky nickname back in college, it suited her perfectly. But now she feels it's one big misnomer. After graduation, she set out to command her own seventh-grade science class and was stunned to find the job too challenging. She didn't have the energy necessary to get a roomful of pre-teens excited about atoms, and she never felt like herself, so she handed in her chalk and lesson plans. Stumped about where to turn next, she followed the advice of her best friend Gerard and took a job folding underthings at the chain lingerie store in the mall.

She's got plenty at home to distract her, including her neighbor, Steven Tyler (no, not that Stephen Tyler) and the kindly septuagenarian Joe, who runs the joke shop downstairs, but she spends her days languishing in the store. Though she feels tired and just out of it physically, she still gets bored steaming peignoir sets, protecting the thong table from shoplifters, and readjusting bras straps for hours on end. Maybe that's why, when a handsome guy named Allan starts hanging around the store for little chats, Moxie sees hope on the horizon. Maybe, just maybe, her employee discount won't go to waste for much longer...

About the Author:

Eugénie Olson lives in Somerville, Massachusetts, with her husband, David, their two cats, Loki and Kiddun, and their fish, Lulu. Her interests include belly dancing, low rider and hot rod cars, and makeup. This is her third book.

From Booklist:

Moxie Brecker had her dream job as a -middle-school science teacher, but it proved to be too much; so now she is living in a small, run-down apartment and working at a lingerie store in the mall. She spends her days folding undergarments, fending off a recidivist shoplifter, and lunching at the food court with her best friend. Except for an occasional conversation with her mysterious neighbor Steven Tyler, her life outside the store is just as monotonous as inside it. For a time, a handsome, repeat customer seems to lift her out of her funk; but he soon disappoints her. So what's special about this book? Moxie's dead-on observations of the world around her, and her wry and cynical way of expressing them. When she finally figures out why she's depressed, she is able to get out of her rut; but, happily, her humor remains just as sharp and enjoyable. Maria Hatton
