Meredith Moore: reluctant daughter, devoted friend, flawless continuity girl, raging sperm bandit.

Meredith Moore is the perfect continuity girl. An on-set film script supervisor, it is her job to make sure every frame of the picture is consistent with the one before. She is the error catcher. The needle-in-the-haystack finder. A cigarette in the left hand when it should be in the right, a prematurely melted ice cube in a half-empty glass of Scotch, a stray lock of an actor's hair--these are the details by which she measures out her life.

But when Meredith wakes up on the morning of her 35th birthday yearning for a baby, her personal sense of continuity is thrown into flux. Determined not to marry, she impulsively flees to London to reunite with her eccentric single mother and accept a new job on a well-known producer's film set. Her covert plan: to become a Sperm Bandit and find an unsuspecting donor to father her child.

Navigating London's murky social waters, Meredith is thrown into a strange new story, one that quickly spins out of control. In her quest to get pregnant on her own terms, she will accidentally uncover a web of secrets that will change the way she envisions both her working life and the nature of love.

Ideally, I would have given this book no stars, but giving it half a star seems to convey my complete distaste even better.

I loved this story about a sperm bandit out to make a family before she is too old. Very funny.

Funny, light read, canadian local, good chicklit!

Fairly light, but with some substance. And some excellent Canadianish references. Two of the characters share a passion for CLR, that cleaner advertised on TV. (which may be available in the US too, for all I know!)
