Katie is the talented young chef running the kitchen in a critically acclaimed restaurant. But she is ready for the next adventure...starting her own restaurant. She has a partner, she has the building, now she just needs to make her dream a reality. But things just keep getting messed up! A delay from the contractor renovating the building throws a wrench in the works, overdue bills and collectors calling, her partner not picking up his phone! Everything begins to fall apart until Katie is visited by a house spirit who offers her a chance to change the past. Eat a magic mushroom, write her mistake in a notebook, fall asleep and awake to a second chance.

That was all she needed, a second chance. But that doesn't last long, things seem to be on track again until her ex-boyfriend shows up at the restaurant messing everything up again. Katie needs just a few more second chances to set everything straight. But second chances don't come without a price...and Katie has quite a bill to pay... 

I love Scott Pilgrim, so when I saw that Bryan Lee O'Malley was coming out with a full color graphic novel I knew I had to read it. This was not a disappointment. I loved every illustration (the use of color was beautiful) and the story (told as only Bryan Lee O'Malley can). I recommend this to fans of Scott Pilgrim, Relish and Kitchen Nightmares.
