      • content: "The ripple effects from Terry McMillan's breakthrough in contemporary African-American fiction still influence our daily lives... [I Almost Forgot About You is] much in the same vein of McMillan's other novels that track Black women's journeys through self-discovery."

      • content: "McMillan is a master at her craft. Without a doubt, this book will be a hit with anyone who feels stuck in life and is ready to make a move. McMillan has done it again. Get this book and read about Georgia's journey. This is another book that should be on everyone's reading list."

        April 4, 2016
        McMillan (Who Asked You?) revs up middle age in a rambunctious showcase of the bestselling author’s keen ear for language, clear eye for the give-and-take of sex, love, and commitment, and heartfelt faith in happy endings. Here, 54-year-old optometrist Georgia Young, bored with her work and romantically adrift after two failed marriages, sets out to reinvent herself by examining the loves she left behind—providing a nifty three-step guide for finding “the Right One,” and then moving on when it turns out wrong—taking a train trip to Vancouver and turning a knack for design into a career. Meanwhile, the real work of Georgia’s life bustles all around her: her crazy-in-love 81-year-old mother, two best and brutally honest friends, and two daughters tentatively embarking on their own complicated lives—an expertly drawn cast of characters that includes the perfect foils for the alternately quixotic and practical Georgia. “Love doesn’t have an age limit, and it can find you at any time in your life,” she tells her 22-year-old daughter. “It can also just as soon leave you in a ditch... You can be a woman and be happy without a man and without love.” There’s no better guide than McMillan for this excursion through early-, middle-, and old-age crises, and no better creator of female characters who refuse to give up on dreaming, or looking back to find the way forward in their noisy, messy, joyous lives. Agent: Molly Friedrich, Friedrich Literary Agency.

        With a great career and close friends and family, Dr. Georgia Young should be happy, but she restlessly sets out on a new course that may or may not bring her a second chance at love. From a perennially New York Times best-selling author, so the 200,000-copy first printing is apropos.
