    A chick lit that took a bit to get into, but once the prologue's 911 call is explained, the story picks up and takes off. As the reader finds out in the prologue, there is a shooting involved, but it takes quite a few pages to get into where this fits into the story. I was intrigued by the prospect of a school shooting that is centered around adults instead of the students. It takes a whole new perspective on how adults react to a shooting that takes place among their peers.

    I wasn't immediately hooked to any of the female characters, but slowly I fell in love with each of the three main girls. Throughout the book there was a lot of internal dialogue that sometimes repeated things that the reader already knew. The boys in the book took a back-burner until the end when they became major players.

    I would recommend this for chick lit fans, those who enjoy a book that takes a new approach to women interactions through their work environment that spills into their personal lives.

    Throughly enjoyed this book. Each character was relatable and well written. I truly enjoyed Frannie, the reader was able to sympathize with her without her coming off a whiney.  There were enough plot lines, but not too many that they got lost in the shuffle. Overall, well developed and I may consider more books from this author.

    The Grass is always Greener...

    This was a book club choice. Ms. Palmer is not anyone I have read but I believe that will change. I so enjoyed this book. The characters were deep and the conversations were real. The first pages cover a 911 call about a shooting. Interest is peaked. The next 100 pages are about relationships - all relationships - and how to find your true self. Sounds boring but it was quite fun. I laughed out loud at the bantering of good friends and the bantering with the lead characters self. Emma - dear Emma who is perfect in every conceivable way - is the new head principal of the elite school where the lead characters work. She is the perfect woman. Or so everyone thinks. When a young boy at school is bullied and she takes the side of the bully, I thought her less than perfect. Frannie - lead character and storyteller - takes the side of the victim and thus begins the true depth of the story. Nothing is what it seams. And - because I did not read the reviews - I didn't know who the shooter was - this went through my mind as I read the book. The aftermath of the tragedy is so well written and so well portrayed I'm feeling it alllll. And I love Ms. Palmer's writing. Did I mention that? Because she can write a book worth reading...

    Warmed up slowly

    This seemed to be one thing, light & beachy chicklit, and then BOOM it shifted entirely. The shift made it worth my time - til then the shallow whining was grating. The character needed to rise past herself, and did.

    Great read!

    I truly related to the main character in this book. Although the ending was wrapped up a little too quickly, I found it to be a compelling read. She has a very unique writing style and her characters are very relatable.

    Just what i needed

    I found the book to be comical at times with a well-rounded story weaving its way thru that which we call life. The biting sarcasm made me an instant fan and crave to immerse myself in her other titles.
