Queen of Babble in the Big City

Queen of Babble in the Big City by Meg Cabot fits into the romance fiction genre and was published in 2007. It is recommended for readers ages 16 and up.

I enjoyed Queen of Babble in the Big City a lot more than the first book (Queen of Babble). For one thing it didn’t have detailed love scenes, thus the reduced age recommendation. For another the problems were more interesting to me. There was also the fun added bonus of “Lizzie Nichols’s Wedding Gown Gide” at the beginning of each chapter. These fun little segments gave advice about which shape and style of wedding gown to pick, how to choose a veil, and how to do your hair and makeup. The actual story puts Lizzie in New York city shortly after the last book ended. She decides to live with Luke instead of her friend Shari and with the help of Chaz, her old friend and Shari’s boyfriend, she manages to land a good job as a receptionist at a law firm. This paying job lets her afford to work for free at a wedding gown shop. This job gives her the experience she wants in her dream career. Through her job as a receptionist she meets Jill Higgins who is marrying into a high class family and is stressed about her upcoming wedding, especially the dress. Lizzie offers her assistance which gains Lizzie and her gown shop fame and notice in the city. However, it’s not all goodness and glory for Lizzie. After months of living with Luke she grows to expect a proposal and when she brings up marriage Luke freaks out and she finds herself homeless. Then the law firm she is working at discovers how she met Jill Higgins and fires her for breaking their privacy policy. It is through good luck and an amazing amount of courage that Lizzie is not only able to solve her problems but even improves her life beyond her dreams. Overall it’s a great book with an interesting plot that kept me reading happily.
