Dive into the sometimes sexy, sometimes sinister, always hilarious world of love and action figures in the toy industry, with Eugenie Seifer Olson, a quirky, smart new author.
Toby Morris is 25 and ready for some excitement. Her job at a large toy company is long on stuffed animals, radio-controlled racers, and activity sets, but short on real satisfaction. When her former art school buddy lands a job at a local TV station and Toby tunes into the weekend news, she soon finds all the excitement she'd ever asked for - through an infatuation with a young, handsome weatherman.
As she slowly becomes obsessed with Doppler radar, storm trajectories, and cloud cover, Toby begins to send him anonymous poems ("if you like these poems/and the feelings I speak/please wear your green tie/on Thursday next week) and letters begin flying.
It seems as though Toby has almost found her true love, until a botched prank leaves Toby wondering how she'll ever weather the storm. But what's coming up for Toby is something no weekend weatherman could ever predict . . .
