By Stephanie Klein

You could call her "a real-life Carrie Bradshaw," but it wouldn't do Klein justice. With a fearless voice, the blogger (www.stephanieklein.com) weaves a memoir filled with heartbreak and humor. At 27, she realizes her husband's a cheater and relaunches herself as a singleton. In no time, she finds herself choosing skivvies to wear for a new beau (a teeny tank, lacy underthings ... and sweats) before discovering that he wears a mesh thong. Klein's book will send some readers straight to her racy blog in hopes of delving deeper into the mind of such a compelling writer.
