Back Cover

Kendall's managed to wrangle her grandmother's house—free and clear—except for the rules. No male roommates. But that's ok, with the right ad she'll pull in some girls, their rent, and if she's lucky, she won't have it go to work any time soon.

For their part, Anna, Leiani, and Megan all have their reasons for wanting to move in: Anna has got to get out from under her overprotective parents; Leiani can't take another day in her aunt's tiny crackerbox house overflowing with toddlers; and Megan needs a place free of her current roommate from Hades. Though they come with assorted baggage filled with broken hearts and dreams, they will discover they also have a vast array of hidden strengths.

As they struggle to become the women they want to be, they'll find new hope and maybe even Kendall will learn a thing or two about life, love, and the true meaning of friendship.


Hijinks abound in this hilarious yet touching look at friendship and coming of age. From Kendall's misleading ad to the eclectic mix of personalities, Carlson dishes out a memorable tale of real life situations and clever solutions. So grab a tall icy glass of lemonade and head for the nearest hammock with i heart bloomberg and get ready for an afternoon of fun. Novel Reviews and I give i heart bloomberg a very high recommendation.

Great review! (This is the author) Thanks so much for taking the time. 86 Bloomberg Place has been a fun departure for me--lighter than some of the writing I do. I'm writing the third book now and these young women keep me highly amused! Thanks again!
