The story centers on four characters living in the same co-ed dorm, attending a prestigious (fictional) business school. We have Jaime, a pudgy, girl-crazy but very nice guy, Layla, a beautiful, ultra-smart and super-motivated Manhattanite, Russ, a Canadian guy torn between his girl back home and finding something new, and Kimmy, a pretty Jewish girl who falls hard for Russ and is not sure what she wants out of school- other than a boyfriend.
The story follow through the first year, following crushes, relationships, and some pretty big deceptions. But the characters are all likeable and flawed, which is something that has made Mlynowski's books so good in the past. This is better than average chick-lit, not just a single-girl-in-the-city story, but a story of four people and the deep bonds they form while living in a co-ed down (nicknamed "The Zoo"). If you like the funny, wittier writers in the chick-lit genre, this is right up your alley. Highly recommended!
However, this became a very minor annoyance because this book is wonderful. I am not sure how the author manages to weave all these people together, but she does.
As far as chick lit goes, this is a notch above the rest and is even "intelligent and thought-provoking". The author manages to make me like all the characters, despite their obvious (and not so obvious) flaws.
Excellent purchase. Buy it.
