Format: Paperback
Don't let the title or cover fool you and I didn't really understand either while reading this novel - maybe I'm just getting used to the repackaged chick lit we're seeing now, but it doesn't matter much once you crack the cover. This was an amusing single girl read, full of interesting characters, tales of friendship, family and love and finding yourself along the way.

Chloe and her single friends Antoine and Juliette vowed to remain single and unmarried when they created the 'Single Person's Manifesto'. Years later Chloe starts to have doubts and wonders if it's really the life she wants. Her decision is met with resistance by her friends, but when she remains committed, it ripples through their threesome and other friends and family along the way. Will she remain single and will she get the love she craves?

This was a light-hearted read chick lit read, but I found it held deeper moments. There were passages that had me nodding and pondering relationships, friendships, marriage and commitment. I felt Chloe's confusion and found her desire to change believable.

The Single Person's Manifesto was an interesting twist on single girl lit, but in the end this novel was about Chloe wanting love and her journey to find it. I did find her sister's story a twist from the usual lighter chick lit fare and that one of her best friends was male was an interesting departure on typical chick lit.

I was rooting for Chloe and pulling for all the other characters along the way. The supporting characters were all well drawn and I wanted to head over to Chloe's parents for dinner. It seemed like such a fun place to be as well as Marcus and Juliette's loft. The plot rolled along smoothly and I laughed out loud multiple times with this amusing, thought provoking novel.

I'm looking forward to more novels from Rafaele Germain!
