Mim Warner's Lost Her Cool
Lynn Messina
Red Dress, Mar 2005, $12.95, 288 pp.
ISBN: 0373895135

Anyone with a dominant cool gene knows that Mim Walker is the coolest coolhunter in the world. Her column is always on the mark even before rumors say the “F” word that ultimately sucks the cool out of a trend.

However, to the shock of the in-crowd, Mim’s last two predictions were so way out and off the chart her friends are wondering if she is terminal. Selecting dirty hooker T-shirts for preadolescent girls and sharp edged samurai swords for preteen boys is not considered cool by anyone even the manufacturers of the products. Could cool Mim become yesterday’s fad, which means clients will go elsewhere seeking a new magnet of coolness. Mim’s employee Meghan Resnick like the rest of the staff worries about the future. However, when Mim loses her cool over a corpse, even loyal rationale Meghan believes her boss will look nerdy in pinstripes.

MIM WARNER LOSES HER COOL is an amusing satire that jabs fads and chick lit tales, which ironically Lynn Messina, a sub-genre author, treats like a fad. The story line never takes itself seriously even when the voice of cool finds a dead body. Chick lit fans who appreciate the laugh at the sub-genre and at the “F” word (fad for you uncool recessive souls) will chuckle at the antics of Mim and her retinue trying to help her regain her lost cool though the plot is a one joke novel.
