    REVIEW QUOTES
Praise for "I Almost Forgot About You" Nobody does female reinvention better than McMillan another winner for McMillan s groaning bookshelf of hits. "AARP "magazine McMillan has written an engaging novel with an appealing cast of women... This near-perfect choice for women s book club discussions will prompt arguments of what makes a guy too good to be true. Stock up with multiple copies. "Library Journal, "starred review A rambunctious showcase of the bestselling author s keen ear for language, clear eye for the give-and-take of sex, love, and commitment, and heartfelt faith in happy endings...There s no better guide than McMillan for this excursion through early-, middle-, and old-age crises, and no better creator of female characters who refuse to give up on dreaming, or looking back to find the way forward in their noisy, messy, joyous lives. "Publishers Weekly" Fans of McMillan will welcome this new addition to her oeuvre. Here is McMillan's trademark style in full, feisty effect: strong, complicated female characters, energetic prose, and an entertaining, seductive narrative. A heartwarming story that reminds us of the pure joy of believing in love. "Kirkus Reviews" In her signature mode, McMillan has a casual, conversational style that makes her determined female lead warmly engaging and relatable. With humor and a feel-good tone, McMillan reminds readers that it is never too late for love or new possibilities. "Booklist" Terry McMillan's novels have always been about telling the uncensored truth about friends, family, lovers, and oneself. Through addictively revealing conversations--including an instructive one about the sexual prowess of men who made the A list--McMillan's narrator is the ideal running commentator on what smart women do to reach the pinnacle of success and what they must do to get the hell out before it's too late. It's a story about both reinvention and acceptance, told in McMillan's quintessential voice, now even more expansive, prismatically perceptive, and laugh-aloud generous in how we talk about love and all its wonders. Amy Tan, "New York Times "bestselling author of "The Joy Luck Club "and "The Valley of Amazement " "" One of my favorite authors since I read "Waiting to Exhale" in college, Terry McMillan has done it again with this one. Overflowing with her trademark heart and humor, "I Almost Forgot AboutYou"will inspire youto live a little bigger. I wish Georgia weren t fictional I would find her and befriend her. Emily Giffin, #1 "New York Time"s bestselling author of "First Comes Love" and "Something Borrowed" The warmth and wisdom we have come to expect from Terry McMillan are on full display and you won t be able to walk away from Georgia and her exuberant life. This is that thrilling kind of novel that reminds us how sometimes, fairy tales happen when we least expect them, if only we open ourselves to possibility. Roxane Gay, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Bad Feminist" and "An Untamed State""
