    A quick read

    Holly, Nicola and Lexi first meet at summer camp. Lexi was the mean girl who hung out with even meaner girls. Holly was overweight and very self-conscious. Nicola was painfully shy and never felt pretty thanks to her perception of her nose.

    Holly and Nicola became fast friends. They often found themselves enduring the wrath of Lexi and her friends. Until one they, both decide to get their revenge.

    Fast forward twenty years later. Holly is now dating Randy and they've just gotten engaged. Well, pre-engaged. Randy claims he wants to marry her, however she only needs to lose a few pounds first. Nicola is an actress living in LA. She's had success with one major movie, and is still trying to make it big. Unfortunately she still doesn't feel pretty enough, so she decides to have plastic surgery. After the bandages are off, she no longer recognizes herself. And Lexi. Well, Lexi just recently lost her father. He changed his will and left everything to her step-mother. Lexi has just a month to move out of her family home and find a job. This will be the first time she will be employed.

    While each woman continues to struggle with issues of her past, Holly accidentally bumps into Lexi while shopping. Thoughts race back to their time at summer camp and Holly feels compels to make things right with Lexi. She solicits the help of Nicola and to two set out to make amends.

    Thin, Rich, Pretty is a book that deals with common issues that haunt girls and can carryover into adulthood. It also speaks to people are more than what we see at first glance. Alternating between the time spent at summer camp and the present, the reader gets a feel for the relationship between the three women.

    Thin, Rich, Pretty is recommended for chick lit fans looking for a quick read.

    Was hoping for more...

    While I did read the whole book and mostly enjoyed it, I felt that there were too many cliche problems and self-realizations going on. Its a very light read, and I was hoping for more depth in the characters, friendships and plot itself.

    Thin, Rich, Pretty

    Not up to her usual standard of writing - although I read the book through - just didn't have the can't put it down type of writing!

    An Quick, Breezy Read

    All of Harbison's books are just okay in my opinion - the reason I keep reading them is because they are often set in the DC area where I live. This is the story of Holly, Nicola, and Lexi, who were once campmates 20 years and now find themselves all longing to be one of the following : thin, rich, or pretty. It is a book that makes you remember that everyone is uncomfortable with their image at one point or another. A breezy summer read - the ending seemed a little too "cookie-cutter" - all wrapped up in a few pages. I listened to it on audio and found the reader to be pretty engaging.
