Hilarious and fast-paced, Note to Self deals with universal themes like loneliness, the quest for love, and the meaning of life in a humorous tone. This beautifully written novel captures the journey of a young woman with a broken heart, who introduces herself as "plain and simple Samantha Adams" or just Sam for her friends. She lives in the only company of her moody black cat, Noir, right across her parents apartment and complains she has made "a plethora of mistakes in matters of life and love." Her list of failed relationships ranges from a pyromaniac ex-boyfriend to a guy who dumped her just two weeks before their wedding date. Will she be able to change the pattern? A hysterically funny, fiercely supportive Puerto Rican family and a circle of loyal friends conspire to do so.
