VINE VOICEon 31 December 2007
Chloe Carrington attends Yale and writes the sex and relationships column for one of the campus newspapers. The novel follows her exploits around campus; from frat parties to life in the local bars; from poker games to naked parties. Each chapter follows the same structure; we find out what is happening in Chloe's life and then see the most recent column she has written. It is only when Chloe starts to get some anonymous feedback about her column on the universities message boards that Chloe starts to realise that she has a secret admirer.

The title of this novel (clearly meant to remind the reader of the famous porn film `Debbie Does Dallas') might be a little misleading. Although this book does have a sexual content it is neither graphic nor gratuitous. I did find it a little implausible that someone writing a sex column would be embarrassed about buying, or in fact using a vibrator, but as the book reflects the author's own experiences, perhaps I'm wrong.

This is an enjoyable chick-lit type read with a bit of an edge. The only thing that spoilt it for me was the ridiculously stereotypical English character at the end who actually says in an email to Chloe `Will you come to my abode this Friday and partake of dinner with me?' Get Real! I would also like to point out that if he grew up in a `working class section of London' then he did A'Levels rather than `Highers' to get into University. A small and picky point about an otherwise good, fun read.
