I enjoyed this book a lot. It was a quick read, enjoyable, and had a certain amount of mystery/suspense. I didn't love the somewhat abrupt ending. I wanted to know more about how things were sorted out with Jordan, Valerie, Addie, and the others. Not sure if the author is leaving the door open for a follow up book...!
Weiner's books are a little formulated, though. There's always a fat girl with 'mousy' hair who manages to slim down, there's always a fabulous friend, and there's a man who 'unexpectedly' becomes a love interest for the fat girl. I do enjoy seeing characters who aren't the typical chick lit read, but I'd like to see it mixed up a little.

A Disappointment for Those Who Love Weiner's Previous Work

I am a huge fan of Jennifer Weiner. With the exception of _The Guy Not Taken_, I've greatly enjoyed every one of her books (with _Good in Bed_ and _Certain Girls_ as personal all-time favorites), but this one just did not do it for me, at all ... sadly.

I am a huge fan of Jennifer Weiner. With the exception of _The Guy Not Taken_, I've greatly enjoyed every one of her books (with _Good in Bed_ and _Certain Girls_ as personal all-time favorites), but this one just did not do it for me, at all ... sadly.

There was a brief moment while the two main characters examined the issues in their "breakup" in which I teared up a bit at the thought of the ways my friendship with my first best friend went wrong, but the rest of the book seemed implausible (i.e. "silly"), one-dimensional, and lacking in the depth I usually find beneath Weiner's humor. Though the main character is well defined, all other characters seem like total caricatures with a few who were downright stereotypes.

This one is not worth reading, in my opinion.

    Don't waste your money

    This is a complete waste of time and money. It had no plot, intrigue or twists. It was so bad that I actually was waiting for some unexpected story to actually make it interesting but that never happened. Really enjoyed her past books which were funny and engaging. More recent books seem poor. I will not read her again.

    I don't regret reading the book, but I didn't consider it a great read. It was a little boring at times, and I struggled a bit to get through it.

    Was very disappointed at the end of the book...not because of the ending (although it left alot of unanswered questions and a possible open door for a follow up), this book just didn't do it for me like her other books did. This one never really sucked me in. The storyline seemed a little choppy at times. yes, it she explained the background of bother girls very well and (I felt) captured some of the hopelessness that infertility can bring in Jordan's story. Enjoyed her other books more.

    Before buying or reading

    Before even THINKING about buying or reading this book... read the reviews. The reviews obviously tell you how good the book was. Read about the book too. Its a great way to find out if the book is worth your time. If you have questions on if your 10 or under child should read these books... ask me! Ill be happy to help :)
