Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here, by Anna Breslaw
Packed full of cultural references, Scarlett Epstein is trying to go for snarky and cool (or at the very least to capture its snarky and cool heroine). The style can get tiring and I found the attitude off-putting. In the end, the old lady was pretty much the only character I bonded with. And much of the time, I wondered what the point was? It's all very clever but not a story which held much interest for me.
