I think it was better that her first

Fabulous! I found the main character very easy to relate to in this one. And I liked the fact that you had to think about how each story fit together into one book. I also could not put it down and was very very pleased with the ending. It was not the cliched 'happily e...
Fabulous! I found the main character very easy to relate to in this one. And I liked the fact that you had to think about how each story fit together into one book. I also could not put it down and was very very pleased with the ending. It was not the cliched 'happily ever after.'

Melissa Banks' writing is witty and peppy. Her character and story kept me interested enough to finish the book. But do you know how some stories and characters live in your blood for the time you're reading the book? And you might even start to speak like the character? This didn't quite happen with The Wonder Spot. Still, an engaging tale and well worth it for the funny moments.

    when book deals go bad

    Reading this, I got the feeling that Banks was offered a book deal after the success of Girls Guide. When the deadline was approaching, she pulled out scrapped chapters and revamped them to fit another story. I was totally disapointed and only read to the end hoping for the kind of soul affirming, tell all my single friends moment I experienced in Girls Guide. If Banks was not a published author with a previously successful book, this would have never been published.
