"Reminiscent of The Office and 9 to 5, Ryan’s debut is a slapstick blend of comedy and heart, with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and strong female heroines." —Kirkus
When Vanessa Blair is fired because of her “resting bitch face,” her friends help her get revenge...
Telemarketer Vanessa Blair isn’t in love with her job. It pays the bills and feeds her foster kittens, but offers only one other perk: her friendships with Jane Delaney and Trisha Lam. But, as mind-numbing as her job is, things are about to get worse. Xavier Adams, her self-absorbed boss, calls Vanessa into the conference room and fires her. The reason? Her facial expressions. Apparently, she has resting bitch face, and it doesn’t matter that her sales numbers are stellar or that she organizes office events.
After a girls’ night of schnapps and imaginary retribution, Vanessa awakens to find her friends bent on a revenge strategy based on the classic business book The Art of War by Sun Tzu. At first, Vanessa wants nothing to do with it. She wants to file for unemployment and move on with her life, possibly with Carter Beckett, the cute, cat-loving unemployment rep assigned to her case. But when Xavier contests her unemployment and ruins her shot at her dream job, Vanessa is all in…
“A fun and original workplace revenge fantasy, filled with kittens, glitter bombs, and friendship.” —Booklist

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Revenge is a dish best served with lots of glitter in this fun workplace comedy. When telemarketer and animal lover Vanessa Blair is fired because of her resting (ahem) unhappy face, she’s understandably shocked. So she and her two work besties, Jane and Trisha, plot their revenge against the affirmation-spouting, egomaniacal head of the company. Anastasia Ryan’s debut novel is packed with laugh-out-loud moments and eccentric supporting characters, not to mention awkward romantic misunderstandings and a fluffy tangle of foster kittens. We loved the amazing bond between the book’s three quirky heroines. You Should Smile More is a riotous romp about what happens when a toxic office culture finally goes too far.
Funny and relatable.
