Publisher Description

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER • From the author of Everything I Know About Love comes a smart, sexy, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy about ex-boyfriends, imperfect parents, friends with kids, and a man who disappears the moment he says "I love you."

“An absolute knock-out. Wickedly funny and, at turns, both cynical and sincere… feels like your very favorite friend.” —Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of Malibu Rising

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: NPR, VOGUE, PEOPLE


Nina Dean is not especially bothered that she's single. She owns her own apartment, she's about to publish her second book, she has a great relationship with her ex-boyfriend, and enough friends to keep her social calendar full and her hangovers plentiful. And when she downloads a dating app, she does the seemingly impossible: She meets a great guy on her first date. Max is handsome and built like a lumberjack; he has floppy blond hair and a stable job. But more surprising than anything else, Nina and Max have chemistry. Their conversations are witty and ironic, they both hate sports, they dance together like fools, they happily dig deep into the nuances of crappy music, and they create an entire universe of private jokes and chemical bliss.

But when Max ghosts her, Nina is forced to deal with everything she's been trying so hard to ignore: her father's dementia is getting worse, and so is her mother's denial of it; her editor hates her new book idea; and her best friend from childhood is icing her out. Funny, tender, and eminently, movingly relatable, Ghosts is a whip-smart tale of relationships and modern life.

The next best thing

If you are like me and you loved Dolly’s book Everything I Know About Love, you are craving more of her writing. This book will only partially satiate that desire. While Dolly’s voice is luminously present in the first-person narration of Nina’s life, you might find the narrator to be a little critical and judgemental, especially of her friend Lola. The plot becomes a little repetitive, but ultimately churns out refreshing new takes on singledom.

Waste of time

If you are an avid reader and over the age of 30, this will bore you to death.
Shockingly amateurish. Read a sample before you waste $14

Couldn’t put this down!!

Love this author, this is the second book of hers that I’ve read and it had me longing for her next book to be released. Her writing is witty, honest and her characters are very relatable
