2010 book 264

Daphne Uviller's Super in the City
Zephyr Zuckerman (come on, that has to be one of the best fictional names EVER) is 27 and feeling a bit aimless about her life's path--her hilarious four best friends are all very accomplished--when the super of the building her family owns is arrested and her parents insist she take the job. Things start to seem a little more than she can handle, plus this cute exterminator keeps hanging around. I found this book while trying to find things that were even a little similar to Lisa Lutz's Spellmans series, and though this isn't really a mystery (I couldn't actually tell whether or not it was supposed to be, but that isn't really important), it totally nails the light humor, excitement, and relationships the way Lutz does. Recommended especially to Christina and my mom. :) A/A-.
