Overview

In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner

Meet Rose Feller. She's thirty years old and a high-powered attorney with a secret passion for romance novels. She dreams of a man who will slide off her glasses, gaze into her eyes, and tell her that she's beautiful. She also dreams of getting her fantastically screwed-up little sister to get her life. together.

Meet Rose's sister, Maggie. Twenty-eight years old, drop-dead gorgeous and only occasionally employed. Although her dreams of big-screen stardom haven't progressed, Maggie dreams of fame and fortune -- and of getting her dowdy big sister to stick to a skin-care regime.

These two women with nothing in common but childhood tragedy, shared DNA, and the same size feet, are about to learn that their family is more different than they ever imagine, and that they're more alike, than they'd ever believe. In Her Shoes observes Rose and Maggie, the brain and the beauty, as they make journeys of discovery. Along the way, the'll encounter a wild cast of characters and they'll borrow shoes and clothes and boyfriends, and make peace with their most intimate enemies -- each other.

Funny and poignant, In Her Shoes will speak to anyone who has endured the bonds of big -- or little -- sisterhood, or longed for a life different from the one the world has dictated, and dreamed of trying something else on for size.

This is chick lit at it's best. I was totally drawn into the story of these sisters and their estranged grandmother. The Feller sisters Maggie and Rose seem so different at the beginning of the story but through circumstance they both end up changing and figuring themselves out which brings them closer together. By the end they realize that they're not so different. I enjoyed the three different perspectives of Rose, Maggie and the grandmother. This is a great book and I'd also have to recommend the movie.

I loved this book to pieces. Never wanted to put it down. The characters are wonderful and I saw myself in both girls. Couldn't wait to read it and when it was done, I was left wanting more. A definite must read.

In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner was the first book i ever read by this author. I had seen the movie, and heck, why not read the book. I love love LOVE the sister relationship going on between Rose and Maggie. Althoough I don't have a sister myself, it reminds me of me and my best friend. My best friend, the "Maggie" scoring every guy she sees, and just being a fearless girl living her life. Me, the "Rose" who is not as beautiful as Maggie, not as fearless, and definitely cannot score every guy. In Her Shoes is an extremely witty tale through relationships, heartbreaks, anger explosions, and the best thing of all, family. Definately Jennifer Weiner's best book out there. I have recommended this book to every woman I know. Excellent read.

It was so hard to put this book done. Even thow her sister take something of hers all the time. she forgave her in the long run. Most people can not that, but some people can change. They where there for each other in the beginning and there where in the end.
