Everyone Else’s Girl

Cover of Everyone Else's Girl by Megan Crane

Awesome Cover!

Everyone Else’s Girl is the critically-acclaimed second novel by author Megan Crane, out now in the UK.

Meredith does things for other people. She irons clothes for her boyfriend, she attends her ex-best friend’s horrendous hen party for her brother (who’s about to marry the girl) and she moves back to her parents’ house to look after her dad when his leg is broken. She’s a good girl and that matters. But when she gets back home, all is not as Meredith remembered. Especially Scott, that geeky teenager from her old class at school. He’s definitely different now. And so, it seems, is she. One by one, her family and old friends start to tell her some home truths and Meredith begins to realise she’s not so perfect after all. Maybe it is time she stopped being everyone else’s girl and started living for herself…

Praise for Everyone Else’s Girl

Megan Crane rules! Cancel your evening plans: You won’t want to stop reading until you’ve devoured every delicious word. –Meg Cabot

Amusing, heartfelt and emotionally sophisticated chick-lit. –Kirkus

Crane prevails with refreshingly real human emotions and reactions. In this book, actions have consequences, and no one gets off easy, despite appearances. –RT BookClub

I suspect a lot of readers were like me – desperately seeking fiction with a romantic edge, realistic stories, and smart writing (oh, for more smart writing).
I suspect a lot of readers were like me and dropped out of chicklit game because finding the good was damn hard work. I dedicate this review to those readers. There is hope…Everyone Else’s Girl is a good book. –Kassia Krozser at

    1. Cause she lend me money when my wallet got stolen, allowed me to cry for days when I got dumped and showed up at my door when I felt awful all week, even though I told her to go to a great party instead.

    2. Mani/Pedi, I don’t really know why but it’s always making me feel relaxed and carefree. After that I no longer need the massage.

  2. Pearl says:

    1. Because we laugh, we cry, we talk and talk and talk about serious stuff, we make fun of and complain about our hubbies, she is always there for me when I need her. We went through puberty, bad boyfriends and annoying parents together, partied till we dropped in our wild days and after 25 years we still find stuff to talk about for hours and hours.

    2. Aw man! Do I really have to choose. I love both mani/pedis and massages. But if I really must choose I’ll go for the mani/pedi and mainly for the mani because I have afwful fingernails and they need to be pampered and groomed regularly
