Welcome to my tour stop for Just Pru by Anne Pfeffer. This is a review tour and runs February 16-27th. Just Pru releases March 2, 2015. Check out the tour page for more information.
When twenty-five-year-old Pru Anderson—braless, pajama-clad, and clutching her cat, Chuck—is rescued from her burning Los Angeles apartment, the thing that scares her most is meeting the neighbors. New people make her hide in the bathroom, counting by sevens, but when her home is destroyed, she must turn strangers into friends … or crawl back to the controlling parents she only recently escaped.
What would her idol, Pepper Hathaway, do? That’s a no brainer: the detective-slash-supermodel heroine from Pru's favorite TV series would take no prisoners while looking fierce in a tankini and stilettos. So when the chance comes up to live with playwright Ellen, Pru sets aside her fears and goes for it.
Thus begin the adventures of a girl who's never had a job, a friend, or a first kiss. Swept into Ellen's whirlwind life, Pru begins to build her own, as director's assistant for a new play, muse to brooding actor Blake, and possible love interest to adorably neurotic neighbor, Adam.
Only one thing can derail Pru's exhilarating journey. Well, actually, it's two things—and they're in a car headed straight for LA to torpedo her life. When the past that nearly destroyed her comes calling, who will she be: a Prudence or a Pepper?

I found this book very inspiring! Pru is an amazing character! Pru is a 25 year old girl living on her own for the first time in her life. What makes this story different from anything I have ever read?
Pru is not your average girl, she struggles with anxiety and depression. Her parents had tired to help her but really they had been holding her back her entire life. They sheltered her and didn't let her live her life. Pru finds herself with no other options but to branch out and make friends when her apartment complex has a fire and her apartment is ruined. Pru moves in with another girl in the building and beings to flourish!!!
I loved being able to read about her fears and the way her over came them. Great read! I give it 4 stars.
