“To me,” writes Tong, “Leah presents reader with an accurate picture of how today’s world really is – in opposition to chick flicks. She hasn’t received her happy ending just yet. Her story shows how frustrating yet hilarious modern dating is.”

Romantic comedies, also known as “chick flicks,” are often criticized for portraying an unrealistic expectation of love, but for those disillusioned singles, author Holly Marie Tong is here to set the record straight.

Her new novel, “Chick Flicks Lie: Sugar-free Accounts of a Positive Pessimist” (published by AuthorHouse), draws from some of Tong’s most hilarious and poignant dating stories while offering advice and hope for other single ladies.

Leah Gardowski dreams of having a family, the perfect career and a white picket fence, but life has other plans for her. From high school to middle age, readers follow Leah on her dating adventures as she encounters bad dates and irresistible exes. Her humor and ability to laugh keep her strong and determined to find the love of her life.

“To me,” writes Tong, “Leah presents reader with an accurate picture of how today’s world really is – in opposition to chick flicks. She hasn’t received her happy ending just yet. Her story shows how frustrating yet hilarious modern dating is.”

Praise for “Chick Flicks Lie”
