For anyone who's ever moved to a new city and realized it's not always so easy to make friends as an adult (especially when it's your "second city", as Bertsche explains). For anyone who's moved for love or work and found herself without all the BFFs childhood/high school/college brought about easily. For anyone who has always valued her female friendships and what they bring to the table---and knows how important they are, even when you're very happy in a romantic relationship. Highly recommend. For me it was so very easy to relate to both the subject material and the author (...after all, I love Harry Potter and a whole lot of TV ;-D).

    I'm only about half way through the book, and although I'll probably finish, I often find myself rolling my eyes at Ms. Bertsche.  Like some other reviews mention, the occasional rhetoric about friendship/ lonliness studies is a stark shift in writing style-- from formal, to almost trying too hard to be witty.  
    Although it's well-writen in a vocabulary, descriptive sense, it reads like an author's first book.  (Because it is?)  
    The author comes across as pretty immature most of the time, making many references to her obsession with TV and awkwardness about befriending someone older/ younger and in a different stage of life.
    Another put-off is her judgy-ness.  Just because she calls herself out about being judgmental, doesn't mean it's okay to do.  
    All in all, I'm not impressed so far.  I picked up the book because as a MWF, (although, I am a stay-at-home mom of a toddler, GASP, a different life stage), I can relate to the topic, like many women.  Ultimately, if we were to friend-date, I don't think I'd call her back.

    Would not recommend

    I found this to be a silly, somewhat contrived and boring read. It kept this same pace throughout and I was happy to be done with it by the end. Would not recommend this book.

    Lack-luster

    First 50 pages were charming and relative but it quickly turns mind-numbing. Had to throw in the towel on this one.
