The Guy Next Door | [Meg Cabot]

The Guy Next Door

Melissa Fuller, gossip columnist of the fictional New York Journal is late for work - again. This time, however, she has a real excuse. She has just saved her elderly neighbour from a near-fatal attack, taken her to a hospital, and in the process, become sole custodian of Paco, her Great Dane - not the ideal accessory for a New York City girl. Melissa urgently needs to trace her neighbour's only relative, but when she finally meets him, the real trouble starts.

Publisher's Summary

Melissa Fuller, gossip columnist of the New York Journal, is on the brink of losing her job. On this particular morning, she is 68 minutes late for work, making it her 37th late arrival so far this year. Human Resources have given her another official warning, her boss seriously doubts her commitment to the paper and, more importantly, even her best friend has begun to worry about her psychological well being.

This time, however, Melissa has a real excuse. She has just saved her elderly neighbour from a near-fatal attack, taken her to a hospital, and in the process, become sole custodian of Paco, her Great Dane - not the ideal accessory for a New York City girl. Melissa urgently needs to trace her neighbour's only relative, but when she finally meets him, the real trouble starts.

What the Critics Say

"Full of clever e-mail banter and tongue-in-cheek humor, this cheeky novel should be enjoyed in one sitting." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Better read than told"
    What would have made The Guy Next Door better?

    It is written as a group of emails without usual dialogue. Maybe ok if reading it but frustrating for listener


    What was most disappointing about Meg Cabot’s story?

    Predictable and hard to get in to with the email dialogue


    How could the performance have been better?

    Difficult to narrate due to many voices
