Reviewer: Annie

How can one person attract so much disaster?
Quirky, clumsy, and eager-to-please Karly has more than her fair share of bad luck.

Waaaay more.

We first meet our 29-year-old accountant in her loud (the fire alarm is going off) and smoky (she’s trying to bake) kitchen. During the chaos, Karly is dumped because of misunderstandings over a divorce lawyer she didn’t hire and an affair she didn’t have. This comes just weeks after performing a very efficient audit on a company…that wasn’t actually a client.


Single and unemployed, Karly continues tripping through life, both metaphorically and physically. She thinks her luck may be turning when she meets the perfect man but in true-to-Karly form, manages to scare him off. And he isn’t just “not returning her phone calls” scared but more “sprinting away across the parking lot screaming like a banshee” scared.


Just as she thinks it can’t get any worse, it inevitably does. Is Karly destined to lead a life of loneliness and poverty or does fate have something else in mind?


First I would like to say that if this story becomes a movie, Sandra Bullock must play the main character; Karly Masterson.  As I read the book, Sandra was the character I kept seeing in my mind.

This was a fantastic take on the life of a woman who had a lot of mishaps in her life, on a daily basis.  These things happened to her so often that her friends nicknamed her “Strangeness Attractor”.  If you could trip over a quarter, and end up in a full body cast..that would be Karly….If you could make  someone angry with the words, “I love you” that would be Karly.

This book was a super-fast read, because everything that happens in like a snowball effect..the bigger it got, the quicker I read.  Her troubles get worse and worse, until you think it cannot get any worse; and then IT DOES!!!

Karly is one of the kindest characters I have ever “met”, yet constantly has awful/annoying things happen to her.  But, she is like a ray of sunshine because she does not ever give up.  EVER!

She loses her job, boyfriend, and moves all within the very first pages of the book.

The question is, “Can she gain a momentum of enough good things happening to outweigh the bad?”

I highly recommend this book for those who like a quick read with humor and heart…If you enjoyed “Miss Congeniality” you will love “Tripping Through.”

    After reading your review, I wish now I had gotten in on the blog tour for it myself. Sounds like I passed up a really good book.
