Certain Girls (Cannie Shapiro, Bk 2)(Audio CD)(Abridged)
Certain Girls - Cannie Shapiro, Bk 2 - Audio CD - Abridged Author:Jennifer Weiner, Michele Pawk (Narrator), Zoe Kazan (Narrator) Readers fell in love with Cannie Shapiro, the smart, sharp-tongued, bighearted heroine of Good in Bed who found her happy ending after her mother came out of the closet, her father fell out of her life, and her ex-boyfriend started chronicling their ex-sex life in the pages of a national magazine. — Now Cannie's back. After her debut n... more »ovel — a fictionalized (and highly sexualized) version of her life — became an overnight bestseller, she dropped out of the public eye and turned to writing science fiction under a pseudonym. She's happily married to the tall, charming diet doctor Peter Krushelevansky and has settled into a life that she finds wonderfully predictable — knitting in the front row of her daughter Joy's drama rehearsals, volunteering at the library, and taking over-forty yoga classes with her best friend Samantha.
As preparations for Joy's bat mitzvah begin, everything seems right in Cannie's world. Then Joy discovers the novel Cannie wrote years before and suddenly finds herself faced with what she thinks is the truth about her own conception — the story her mother hid from her all her life. When Peter surprises his wife by saying he wants to have a baby, the family is forced to reconsider its history, its future, and what it means to be truly happy.

It was "just ok" in comparison to Good in Bed. I keep trying this author, in hopes that one of her other books will be as good as Good in Bed, but so far, I've been very disappointed.
It took me about 1/3 of this book to even care a little about the characters, and I had to keep pushing myself to read it. The storyline was pretty boring, although I like how Joy "bloomed" at the end.
Felt the same way about Fly Away Home, which I purchased because it wasn't available for trade. Fortunately, I found "Certain Girls" at a B&B we visited and I didn't fork out $15 to read it.
