Save as Draft - Cavanaugh Lee (2011)

Izabell is a single Atlanta woman who can't meet a man - she blames this on Atlanta's 1:8 man to woman ratio. After joining, she meets someone who she instantly clicks with, Martin. Though they had a good date, she ends up "hooking up" with her long-time best friend, Peter. That's where things get complicated. Written in e-mails, Twitter-feeds and Facebook status updates, this book is definitely up to speed with the latest social networking. You get to see the emails that are left unsent, or in other words "saved as draft". You are left wondering what would have happened differently had those drafted emails been received by their intended party. This quick and funny read left me anxious for part 2. (AV)

Love your social networking? Then Cavanaugh Lee's debut novel Save as Draft will certainly appeal. Told through emails and text messages, it's about Izabell, a wactress (waitress/ actress) turned lawyer, who lives her life online. She says: "I've got this problem... There's this guy. His name's Peter. He's my best friend and co-worker, and we just started dating which is potentially a huge mistake. But that's not all. There's this other guy, Marty. I met him on eHarm, and he ran with the bulls in Spain. I can't get him off my mind. What a mess." What happens when age-old courtship rituals fall prey to the ever-changing sensibilities of how we share not only information, but our own hearts? Save as Draft is out in February. Lee worked as a wactress after graduating from the UCLA School of Theatre. She now is a prosecutor in Georgia.
