Based on the wildly popular Twitter feed, a roman à clef about how thinking like a couple of girls turned one single guy into a better man. After growing up in a loving family of predominantly women, Charlie McDowell thought he understood the female gender. But after being unceremoniously dumped by the girl he was certain was "the one," he hit rock bottom. Charlie was curled in a fetal position on his couch when he overheard a conversation between his new, way-too-loud upstairs neighbors--two impossibly ditzy female roommates in their mid-twenties--for the first time. When his attempts to get them to quiet down failed, Charlie started paying attention to their conversations--which were not only amusing but also offered him access to a completely uncensored woman's perspective on the world. As Charlie rebuilds his life as a single guy, he puts the wisdom of the girls above him to the test. From the importance of Google-stalking potential girlfriends and how a guy can pull off pastel, to the best way to get out of anything on a date (fake a phone call about a family death) and the location of the g-spot, the girls get Charlie into trouble, but they also get him out of it--without ever having a clue of their impact on him.
