    this is a 64-page short story or novella!

    This is getting bad reviews because folks have downloaded it, expecting a full price book at the sale price of 99 cents -- but it's only 64 pages! So be warned.

    Leaves you hanging...

    The book is extremely short and ends unexpectedly, leaving you looking for the rest of it.

    Great short story...too short!

    Great short story...too short. Unfortunately, I missed the "short story" in the title and was really beginning to enjoy it when it was over!

    YOU MUST CHECK IT OUT

    Istarted reading book and assumed it would be like Jennifer Weiner's other novels which I always enjoyed. This was a series of excerpts from her other books and so I was disappointed to start a story and then not have it conclude in the novel.

    GRR!!!

    Nice story, very sweet, but what happens next?!?!

    I personally LOVE Jennifer Weiner and purchased this book thinking I was getting a great deal!!!
    No.
    It is a 50 page story and the last 100 pages are samples of some of her other work.

    Wish they would have said it was a SHORT STORY

    Great author

    I enjoyed this short story but sure wish it was a book. It ended way too quickly. But it was a reminder of how much I have enjoyed the other books written by Weiner and I will read more of her.

    Not worth the time

    I usually like Jennifer Weiner, but I wasn't impressed with this story. I also found the Nook book format a little misleading since the story comes with many samples of Weiner's other books.

    Waste of money

    This short story was mediocre at best and ended abruptly. I would not recommend actually paying for it unless the excepts from the other stories would br useful for you. Very disappointing.
