Trashy-romance writer Gerri has it all — an overbearing family, a dead-end job, and no man but a ton of pressure to get married and have kids. Frustrated and hopeless that things will ever change, she decides it’s time to transition from “tragic loser” to “tragic loss.” Armed with a shoebox full of sleeping pills and a big bottle of vodka, she’s ready to end it all. First, she writes “honest” farewell notes to everyone she knows…
However, her big exit becomes her latest failure, and now she must face all those she’s offended with her “final” words. Is it possible to get along with people once they know what you really think of them? Gerri’s going to have to find a way to make things right with everyone…or die trying.
