When Davie, an ugly duckling growing up in small-town Mississippi, sees John Hughes’s Sixteen Candles, it changes her life forever. Determined to reinvent herself, Davie runs away to Los Angeles and becomes a beautiful, successful lounge singer. And then James Farrell walks into her club. Rich, still gorgeous, and yes, driving a Porsche, James is the perfect costar for Davie’s fantasies. To her astonishment, James doesn’t recognize her from the old days, and Davie can’t bring herself to tell him the truth. Instead she lets him fall as deeply in love with her as she once was with him. But before they can ride off into the sunset, Veronica, James’s sister, arrives and recognizes Davie—threatening to disclose every secret of her dark past. Ernessa T. Carter’s refreshing, smart, and romantic 32 Candles introduces an underdog readers will root for until the unexpected end. The editor also edited THE KNOWN WORLD by Edward P. Jones.
