Laurie Graff grew up in Sunnyside, Queens, counting the days until she could move across the 59th Street Bridge into the City, and claim the life of That Girl. For those who may not know the popular 60s TV show, Marlo Thomas portrayed an adorable, kooky, free-spirited actress. Well, Laurie did not become that girl, but as this one she went on to do television and radio commercials, professional theater and a hit Broadway show. To date, the role of Frenchy, the Beauty School Dropout in Grease, remains her favorite. Chatty girl she was (still is) Laurie always enjoyed regaling friends with tales from her dating pond. Spinning stories about the quirky, froggy guys she'd date, hopeful that one might turn into her prince. So far no one's kept the throne, but the stories turned into her first novel, You Have to Kiss a Lot of Frogs. And she is delighted for the book to be reissued and brought back. Other novels include the sequel, Looking for Mr. Goodfrog and The Shiksa Syndrome. A lover of all things New York, Laurie is very involved in organizations, community affairs and cultural activities, writing, acting and constantly on-the-go with family, friends and yes, frogs. Keep Kissing.

Overall this is a light and quick read which I really enjoyed. Aimee pretends to be a Shiksa (non-Jewish) to get the Jewish man of her dreams and when she finds it is harder to keep up the lie, she becomes honest with herself. By not pretending, she finds the love she was looking for was right there...
