I bailed on this one years ago, just because I didn‘t have time to read it. Maybe I‘ll get back to it one of these days, but I do remember that I didn‘t think it was strong as The Nanny Diaries...

If I remember correctly, here‘s the gist: famous singer comes back to his hometown, and all is excited to see him, except his ex-girlfriend, his hometown love who was the inspiration behind some of his songs. #star #ayupaugust

Cinfhen Sounds like it would make a good beach read 🏖 3mo
squirrelbrain I‘ve read The Nanny Diaries but not this one.... 3mo

I‘m always thinking of new ways to challenge myself, especially when it comes to reading. I‘m curious about choosing books to read simply based off of their dedication or epigram. I‘m hoping to spend a week or two dedicated to doing this. I might select off of my own shelves, but I‘m curious to see what you‘ve guys got for me too. Please post some pictures of your favourite dedications/epigrams and tag the book they‘re from! ⬇️⬇️

Clwojick If I love them as much as you do, they might just make my list of books to read! I absolutely cannot wait to see what you guys choose! Use the hashtags #WinningDedication or #WinningEpigram and tag me. ♥️💙🧡 6mo

Reggie This reminds me of you @batsy because the redline in here always tries to autocorrect you to batty or nasty. I always have to make sure it doesn‘t. Lol 1y
batsy @Reggie Hahaha! I'm usually either one or sometimes both, depending on the (time of) day 🤣🤣🤣 1y

Kaye I had a squishy in the middle grandma. I think they are supposed to be squishy ❤️ 2y
Trashcanman You did say you'd let me know Kaye. I like that one, next time I come across another I like I'll share it then too. Hope you are having a pleasant day. 2y
Kaye Sounds great @Trashcanman . Will be glad to hear it. My day is going ok. A bit nippy here today but other than that it‘s fine. How about yourself? 2y

This is the portrait up-close. Now, all she had to work with was an old, yellowed, very low quality xeroxed image from an old newspaper. Damn good!

cobwebmoth @BookBabe is extremely talented. ❤ 2y

Sassy_Steph Amazing work though!! 2y
Sassy_Steph I now realize my comment might be viewed as mean! I didn‘t mean it in a mean way! The eyes are haunting though!! 2y
MrBook @Sassy_Steph Aww, lol, it hasn't been viewed that way 😊🤗. Various components were difficult to get on the canvas since the image she worked from was so deteriorated. And being an old b&w, the format naturally lends to such impressions. So, on the contrary, it's an astute observation regarding what artists can have to deal with. 😁👏🏻 2y
CAnne Impressive @BookBabe ! You should be extremely proud. 2y
Mdargusch Such an amazing job! 2y

@BookBabe and I are in New Jersey today for the dedication of a fallen firefighter who died in the line of duty 77 years ago and was forgotten about. This ceremony is formed around the portrait rendering Jen did of him from an old, very grainy image. A bunch of departments, mayors, a couple newspapers, radio stations, all kind of hullabaloo around here. She's a bit nervous ☺️😍.

Betty We'd love to see the portrait. Glad he's no longer forgotten. 2y
KVanRead Bravo @BookBabe 👏 2y
OrangeMooseReads Way to go @BookBabe you‘ll rock the day 👍🏼 2y

RebelReader Very nice that his bravery and sacrifice is being acknowledged. My son in law is a firefighter so I know how hard they work. @BookBabe I'm sure your day will be amazing! 2y
Hooked_on_books Do you guys have any other connections to Kearny? My cousin‘s husband grew up there. 2y
MrBook @Hooked_on_books I lived in Kearny for a bit. And Lyndhurst, and North Arlington, and Nutley, and... 😆🙌🏻 2y
Hooked_on_books Well, if you knew any Bonaccorsos there, that‘s his family. 2y
