This unforgettable debut novel asks us to look up from our screens and out at the world . . . and to imagine what life would be like with no searches, no status updates, no texts, no Tweets, no pins, and no posts

Evie Rosen has had enough. She's tired of the partners at her law firm e-mailing her at all hours of the night. The thought of another online date makes her break out in a cold sweat. She's over the clever hashtags and the endless selfies. So when her career hits a surprising roadblock and her heart is crushed by Facebook, Evie decides it's time to put down her smartphone for good. (Beats stowing it in her underwear—she's done that too!)

And that's when she discovers a fresh start for real conversations, fewer distractions, and living in the moment, even if the moments are heartbreakingly difficult. Babies are born; marriages teeter; friendships are tested. Evie may find love and a new direction when she least expects it, but she also learns that just because you unplug your phone doesn't mean you can also unplug from life.

Review:

“A witty, wonderful, and thoroughly modern love story. Friedland’s writing is sharp and funny, tender and true. I couldn’t put it down.” (Cristina Alger, author of The Darlings)

“Wholly irresistible—smart and poignant and laugh-out-loud funny.” (Sara Houghteling, author of Pictures at an Exhibition)

“An extremely fun reminder that we can all survive without emoticons. #greatread!” (Erin Duffy, author of ON THE ROCKS and BOND GIRL)

“Part modern girl-power moxie manual and part cleverly twisted old-fashioned love story, Elyssa Friedland’s sublime debut was a delight to devour.” (Jill Kargman, author of The Rockstar in Seat 3A and star of Bravo's Odd Mom Out)

“A delicious and timely novel. Friedland takes a look at how our addiction to social media brings us together while keeping us apart.” (Molly Jong-Fast, author of The Social Climber's Handbook)

“Funny, fast-paced, charming, and totally relatable, Friedland gives us a brilliant love story and reminds us it’s nice to pick up a smart book instead of a smartphone for a change.” (Jennifer Belle, bestselling author of High Maintenance and The Seven Year Bitch)

“a funny and fresh take on working and dating in the age of social media. Readers will root for the flawed but lovable Evie Rosen as she fights to separate who she is from how she appears online.” (Susan Gloss, author of Vintage)

“Love and Miss Communication is a cut above standard chick lit fare. [...] it’s a smart, funny and sweetly old-fashioned love story.” (Examiner.com)

“Friedland’s Love and Miss Communication challenges our mind-set with a thought-provoking what if. And Evie’s story promises an enjoyable experience with a happy ever after.” (USAToday.com Happy Ever After Blog)
