DULUTH, MN (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Shirley Thompson ( today announced the publication of her book “Chicago Hopeless” from In a style that is reminiscent of Erma Bombeck, “Chicago Hopeless” ($13.95, ISBN: 1413787711), tells the true story of what happens when three sisters are turned loose in Chicago in search of a happy ending.

“One sister desperately needs a kidney transplant, one sister is there to donate one of her kidneys, and the other sister is there to make sure all goes well,” explains Shirley Thompson, the book’s author. “But of course, nothing goes as it should, and the three sisters must join forces against medical Murphy’s Law to make sure that they get to the other side of this life-changing and hilarious series of big city adventures in one piece. From stealing wheelchairs to fire alarms, scheduling mix-ups, and hospital patient mix-ups, it is one unbelievable catastrophe after another! The message that I hope to leave with my readers is that with family love and a good sense of humor, we can overcome any obstacle, even during the most troubled of times, and even in a hospital!” *(Photo Caption: “Chicago Hopeless” by Shirley Thompson)

With their prompting, and at the urging of her sisters, Shirley finally decided to try writing as a second career.
