Top Customer Reviews
It seems I enjoy books written in the first person much more than the third person and it became even more apparent in this novel (with the exception of Jennifer Weiner who writes the third person spectacularly). This chick lit character had just the right amount of ditz, quirk and outrageous situations along the lines of Bridget Jones's Diary and The Shopaholic series and made me laugh out loud multiple times. Even though I wasn't sure about most of her friends or her sister, I loved the character's often painful transformation and was pleased that it didn't all revolve around a man - he was only the impetus for her transformation.
Great Canadian Chick Lit and I will definitely read her new novel coming out next year!
