About the Book

Everything Nice

She’s lost her job, her apartment, and her boyfriend (who turned their breakup into a stand-up comedy routine). But Michaela “Mike” Edwards is about to stage a comeback, thanks to a class of wide-eyed young girls who have become her biggest fans. A fresh take, Everything Nice is the story of a tough-as-nails woman whose father taught her to steer clear of sugar and spice. Mike thought she was at the top of her game, sprinting up the career ladder at an ad agency without employing a single feminine wile. But guts and savvy weren’t enough to save her from office politics. Unemployed and running low on stamina, she finds herself coerced into taking on a daunting new job: teaching Life Skills at a Manhattan charter school. Before long, Mike and the students are giving each other real-world lessons that will change their lives—while Mike’s best guy friend, an Aussie journalist, is about to give her a crash course in love.

The questions and discussion topics that follow are intended to enhance your reading of Ellen Shanman’s Everything Nice. We hope they will enrich your experience of this sexy, wickedly funny novel.
