This is a delightful book that, in minimal words, conveys all the joys and dramas of single girl life. Griffenhagen's words paired with Cynthia Vehslage Meyers' art is whimsical and charming, extolling the joys of the "walk of shame," talking about booty calls, crushes, wistfulness, parental questions and much more. They're sweet and dirty and fun and will make single girls take heart that they're certainly not alone. Hard to pick favorites because there are so many that perfectly capture what it means to be single and have mixed feelings about it.
Haikus are not for everyone, but I happen to enjoy them. Having a very literary niece who is single and 40 years old I thought that this might be a good Christmas gift for her. ----- NOT!!!! The haikus were not written well and many of the sentiments expressed were in very poor taste. I returned the book.
