Publishers WeeklyFormer Miss Universe Torres, with a big assist from sister Jinny (a "mental health counselor with several degrees"), delivers a well-written guide to post-divorce recovery; the famous ex of singer Marc Anthony isn't remarkably original in her debut, but she is interesting and helpful. Jinny features prominently, frequently interjecting advice and explanation alongside Torres's narrative; as a team, their information is direct, practical and easy to follow. Fans of Marc Anthony won't find any dish here; Torres mentions him infrequently and only as "my ex-husband." Despite predictable content-reviewing the stages of grief, learning to forgive, accept and understand yourself-her sincere feeling and camaraderie will make readers feel warm and welcome (even if she occasionally goes a bit too far, as in 15 pages of letters from her "friends" about their own break-ups).
