Sydney Zamora is fiercely independent, aggressively opinionated, and utterly self-made. She’s reshaped her body (into the perfect sample-sale outfitted size 6, thank you very much), organized a life for herself as a celebrity journalist at hot magazine Cachet, and strides through the canyons of New York City like she owns them. There’s just one problem: Sydney is so strong that she plays keep-away with men. But now that she’s hitting her midthirties, she wants one. Badly. For her birthday, Sydney’s sister ambushes her with the services of Mitzi Berman, $40,000 a shot Manhattan matchmaker extraordinaire. Mitzi also has her eyes on Max Cooper, the scion of Harvey’s department store, the chicest place to shop in America. And nothing could make either Sydney or Max Cooper run faster than Mitzi, with her rules and her Brooklyn accent—that is, if they didn’t concede her a point or two. Peopled with vivid, hilarious characters, Feminista is fast-moving fiction whose themes of independence, image and the com pli - cated relationship between the sexes in the working world recall the best of Rona Jaffe.

Review:

"Every successful woman with an 'S' for single on her chest (and a target on her back) can relate as Sydney struggles with wanting to 'be the girl' and be in constant control. The great thing about this hilarious novel is that Erica Kennedy makes us wonder if that's possible while also questioning whether it's necessary." --Helena Andrews, author of "Bitch Is The New""Black"

""Feminista" is smart, hilarious, and totally of the moment. Every feminist fashionista will find herself on these pages, as Erica Kennedy uses wit and verve to take a look at some of the tough decisions women have to make on the road to having it all. One of the most enjoyable reads of the year."-- Rebecca Walker, author of "Baby Love: Choosing Motherhood After a Lifetime of Ambivalence."

"Why can't all women's fiction be as funny, smart and witty as "Feminista"?"--Anna David, author of "Bought" and "Party Girl"

"Kennedy tweaks the template to create a beautiful, biracial, brainy heroine, far hipper than chick-lit is used to."--"Kirkus Reviews"

""Feminist"a is a love story for women, like Sydney, who aren't quite sure they still believe in love. A feminist page-turner that will have readers laughing in recognition of the twists and turns of the dating jungle." --Rachel Kramer Bussel, editor of "Fast Girls"

"A story of two people that may be perfect for each other despite their differences set amid the flash of New York City."--"News and Sentinel "(Parkersburg, WV)

""Feminista " [boasts an] unapologetically ballsy protagonist, Sydney, a writer who finds love almost despite herself."--"www.thefrisky.com"

"In turn uplifting, funny, a little sad and always, always entertaining."--"www.bookshipper.blogspot.com"

"Erica Kennedy's "Feminista" is funny, charming, and just possibly too close to home...Sydney is hardly a typical heroine."--"www.opednews.com"

"Kennedy jazzes up the chick-lit formula with a cast of colorful characters and plots inspired by TMZ and Page Six...readers will enjoy Kennedy's humor (she's a master of the well-aimed zinger) and the fictionalized real-life dramas she inserts in the story."--"Newsday"
