Elizabeth Michelle Aster is having a bad day.
She set fire to her kitchen. She accidentally killed her canary. She lost her job. She lost her girlfriend.

No wonder people call her Diz-Aster. It couldn’t get any worse. Could it?

It can. She hires a guy to murder her, but ‘Bullwinkle’ bungles the job, yet he just keeps trying in one botch-up after another. The ghost of her dead canary is haunting her, and talking to her with a Spanish accent. The mysterious new woman in her life is a bit off herself, and definitely not what she seems.

It can’t get any worse than that.

At least she still has her collection of Converse Chuck Taylors.


I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Have you ever had a bad day that just seems to keep getting worse? That is what happens to Dizzy, and it’s hilarious to read. This book is funny, sarcastic and over-the-top in exactly the way you want a comedy book to be.

Dizzy seems like a nice enough person, but she’s a magnet for bad luck. How else can you explain losing your job, losing your girlfriend, setting fire to your kitchen and killing your canary, all within a span of a couple hours? I felt bad for her, even while snickering and giggling at her misfortune.

This is a great book that will have you laughing and thinking that your life is pretty good. It’s a quick weekend read that is sure to leave you smiling. After all, what can you expect from a character that is told:

You make the Titanic look like a tiny little misadventure.
