This is a story about what happens when you are twenty-four
years old and it is 1999 and you are quite certain that
everyone on the planet has been invited to super-fun New
Year’s Eve orgies, except you. There is sex, albeit awkward
and tentative. There are drugs, however illegal. There is
very little rock and roll, but there is, of course, a
wedding, and possibly a heroine: Betsy Nilssen, who, daily,
finds herself in the sort of Manhattan workplace frequently
filled with fashion models. She has a best friend named
Bridget, and all Betsy wants is to escape Y2K by fleeing
with her to New Zealand, where they could kayak through
fjords and make out with surfers.
But two things
happen: Bridget deserts Betsy—if by that we mean that
Bridget accepts her boyfriend’s proposal of marriage—and
Betsy meets the man of her quite literal dreams. This is a
story about what happens when you love tremendously, and
desperately, and occasionally unwisely. And it is a story of
that one friend: your phone-a-friend with the definition of
a tangelo at the ready, the one you call when the world is
ending, the one you need, finally, more than any other
person on the planet.
