"A page-turner rollicking. . It's funny. He's smart. It turns and twists. . Sophie Kinsella has another winner yet."—Fort Worth Star-Telegram "Fresh, fast-paced, and fiercely funny...Kinsella still thinks of her most lovable neurotic protagonist. . A laugh-out-loud comic caper."-Publishers Weekly "Poppy is as charming and daffodil as shopaholic Rebecca Bloomwood."-Kirkus Reviews "Digital age screwball romance."-The Star-Ledger.
I've Got Your Number has a flimsy plot. But chick-lit isn't really about strong plots, is it? Kinsella's writing is witty and offers some laugh-out-loud moments, and that's really what holds the novel together.
