Review by Emily Joseph
Since losing her parents at a young age, Meri Palmer has turned to video games to escape the loneliness in her life. She develops a connection to them that she has yet to find in the real world. Although her family and friends encourage her to engage in more social activities, the thought doesn’t interest her until she gets wind that her work’s bike messenger may have his eye on her.
Growing up in the age of video games, I was excited to see how the author would incorporate technology into a chick lit book. I was very impressed with how she transitioned from one world to the next, incorporating gamer lingo while also introducing us to a whole host of fun characters (I especially loved her grandmother!).
A fun, light read that will have you rooting for Meri to put down the remote and be the heroine in her own game of life.

About the Author:
Glynis never expected in her wildest dreams to be a writer. After thirteen years in the Human Resources Industry, she decided to stay at home with her two amazing sons. Ever in search of a project, she was inspired to write the story of how, in only six short months, she met and married her wonderfully romantic French husband, Sebastien. The end result became her first novel, French Twist. As this was just the beginning of their epic love story, Glynis continued to chronicle their adventures in the sequel, French Toast, and the final installment in the series, French Fry. After she finished milking her life story for all it was worth, she decided to write straight-up fiction with Gamer Girl, which infuses her beloved chick lit with a hint of fantasy.
When Glynis is not writing, she is trying to keep the peace amongst the three men and two cats in her life, finding missing body parts (Lego pieces are small!), supervising a myriad of homework assignments and keeping a tenuous hold on her sanity by consuming whatever chocolate is in the vicinity.
