    easy read

    I found this book easy to read, finished it in one day, and I liked the story. Even though I am not a jew I found that the issues the main character had to deal with very familiar to real life. Over all I liked it and would recommend it

    Read Shiksa Syndrome

    The Shiksa Syndrome is a really fun read. It reminded me that Judaism isn't just a religion, but also a culture and a way of life that influences the way to talk, dress, eat, decorate and socialize. It's an interesting premise that the Jewish guy falls in love with the Jewish girl when he thinks she isn't - oy! The hora scene was HILARIOUS!!

    Shiksa Syndrome, memory land for me

    Whew, Shiksa Syndrome brought back memories, of trying to accomplish the opposite feat, of trying to pass for Jewish to please a boyfriend and his parents. It seems crazy to me now, but I remember getting caught up in trying to change myself to please a lot of other people. So I related to the heroine of this story. I liked the author's message, that once we let go of assumptions and expectations we can find a healthy relationship.
