"If Penny Brighton didn't have bad luck, she'd have no luck at all. She lost her job. And her apartment. In the same day. But it's okay, her friend has a cozy storage unit she can crash in. And there's bound to be career opportunities at the neighborhood laundromat--just look how fast that 12-year-old who runs the place made it to management! Plus, there's this sweet guy at the community center, and maybe Penny can even have a conversation with him without being a total dork. Surely Penny is a capable of becoming an actual responsible adult, and if she can do that her luck's bound to change! Right?"--From back cover.

Funny and entertaining throughout. I couldn't help but fall in love with the main characters.

Honestly, I'm not going to spoil anything. t's that good of a book. But aside from that stuff, if you like the Scott Pilgrim series, you'd love this. (They're both made by the same Publisher!) but anyway. Good book, must read.

This book was a nice, lighthearted and just a little ridiculous escape into someone else's messed up world. I loved it. The art is perfect with the subject, a little manga influenced and very detailed. Penny herself is absolutely adorable, even as her strengths outshine her bad luck. I had a lot of laugh-out-loud moments reading it, and couldn't wait to keep going and exploring her world. There were moments it felt like the author could have slowed down and explored her story just a little more, but that's a minor complaint. Overall it was a really good graphic novel.

This graphic novel is about a twenty-something girl named Penny who can't seem to shake off her bad luck. Plus: an evil 12-year old boss, a cat who won't go away, Dungeons and Dragons, inexplicable action sequences, and a little romance.

Penny's character is a lovable hot-mess--and the plot is perfectly quirky & uplifting. Ridiculously charming! I read this graphic novel in one sitting, and smiled the whole way through! Perfect for fans of Scott Pilgrim--adults and teens alike.
