As Ovum's in-house relationships expert, Lola is now up against the pop-psych big dogs-the authors of the mega-selling The Canon: Your Only Hope For a Husband and of the pharma-memoir Xanax Planet, not to mention E. Ron Wilson, kabillionaire despot of the Men Are Pigs, Women are Nuts empire. She's also rubbing elbows with the most powerful person in the universe: the talk-show host/domestic goddess/pop singer/movie actress/anti-landmine activist Penelope. But Lola soon starts to suspect that something is rotten in Ovum's 24-hour juice bar. Are her sidekicks Kat and Ted the only people who know about her forbidden romance? Whose idea was it to change the women's sports show from "Sweat" to "Glow?" Could she-and her entire demographic-be up against forces more powerful than incompetence?
