Description

Dive into the sometimes sexy, sometimes sinister, always hilarious world of love and action figures in the toy industry with Eugenie Seifer, the quirky, smart new author for Avon Trade.

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.
