Overview
When flight attendant Hailey Lane learns the rest of her trip has been cancelled and she can fly straight home to spend her birthday with her boyfriend Michael, she's thrilled. Her early arrival will allow for some additional date night prep time, a definite bonus as she's convinced Michael is about to propose. But when she walks through the door, the surprise that awaits her is not at all what she expected. And as she grabs her bags and flees the scene one thing is clear-her entire future has just been rerouted. So Hailey does the only thing she can: she sets out on a worldwide trip to fix a broken heart. And thanks to free flight passes and long layovers in exotic locales, she finds herself with more options than she could have ever imagined...
From New York to Paris, from Puerto Rico to Greece, Alyson Noel takes us on a trip filled with mojitos at every layover, outrageous passengers in every seat, and a cute guy at every gate, as Hailey tries to write her own happy ending.

Former flight attendant Noël's valentine to high-flying single gals is Sex and the City at 37,000 feet, a fashionably dressed, ditzy romp up and down the jetports of major cities across America and Europe. Just when flight attendant Hailey Lane thinks her live-in pilot boyfriend, Michael, might finally pop the question, she catches Captain Cad with his pants down, forcing her to land a new apartment and a worthy boyfriend while finishing the novel she's writing. After a weekend of binge grieving with best pal Clay, the "born and raised in the OC" Hailey juggles dates with a pervy Pulitzer Prize–winning author, a wealthy businessman with performance issues and a Greek hottie with an Oedipal hangup. Noël's debut adult novel (she's written three YA novels) has some fun with the air-traveling public: the inane questions, the bad behavior, the mile-high club hookups. She also lobs a few barbs at an airline industry willing to sacrifice its workers' morale for the bottom line. There's never a doubt Hailey will land the right guy, the book deal and the great pad, and the romantic misadventures turn out to be no more memorable than a cross-country red-eye. (Jan.)

More than a packet of peanuts

Who hasn't wondered about the private lives of flight attendants? I've wondered how they sleep and where they go after the flight, and if it's glamorous or just tiring. Their day-to-day reality is the world of Hailey Lane, the protagonist of Alyson Noël's Fly Me to the Moon. If you're thinking it's some glitz and glamour tell-all, scrub that. It's more like a "Grey's Anatomy" of the skies, with friends and power plays and a woman who needs to find herself before she can ever really find love. When Hailey finds her pilot boyfriend in a compromising position that leaves no room for negotiating a reunion, she's jolted into taking a look at her life and what matters. Like most of us in the throes of self-discovery, she drinks too much, indulges some whining and misses the boat with the right guy and hooks up with the wrong ones, but she also drags out a manuscript for a novel she started writing before the boyfriend took over her life. It's easy to cheer for Hailey, who is smart and warm if a little confused, and who learns—as we do—that the pleasure is not in the destination, but in the journey itself.
