Light, fun & entertaining July 15 2006
By Colette - Published on
Format: Paperback
Totally enjoyable -- like a cold fizzy drink on a hot summer day... it was light, fun, and entertaining! Very much from the same school as British chic-lit like Bridget Jones, but with an American perspective and flavor.

Really missed illustrations from Vladima at the start of each chapter -- don't know if they're planned for the final version, but they should be!! I found myself thinking at the end of each chapter about what quick cell could have been drawn of Vladima to kick off the chapter... at the very least a page or two at the end of the manuscript, perhaps of Vladima & her Doctor critiquing/discussing Josh & Becks.

Cover didn't reflect the book at all, title yes, but book cover design was completely random, not at all related to the story... v. odd choice in my opinion.

Addictive and light-hearted story Feb. 27 2007
By shannon - Published on
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed this author's first two books (which were more mystery-oriented), but I love the "balance" in The Balance Thing.

It's fun to live vicariously through Becks - though at times you definitely want to smack her on the forehead when she's about to do something silly. Luckily, her friends in the story help keep things in balance.

I found this book to be terribly addictive and a wonderful read over a weekend. It would've been a great beach-read if it wasn't so cold out right now! ;)
