I so enjoy Jennifer Weiner's novels. She makes me laugh as well as feel sad with the twists and turns she weaves into her stories. Her main characters are interesting and multidimensional and always learn something from the lives they lead. I can hardley wait to receive my next novel by her!
First novel with only a few tiny uneven spots such as the dialog between superstar actress Maxie and Cannie the main character. Gives you enough action without shorting readers on the description. Is really a good romance that has you thinking about how people's childhood experiences affect them forever. Cannie ends up with the good guy in the end but not how you expected it to happen. Highly recommend. You will laugh out loud AND cry.
This book I started to read but it got off so slow that I handed it off to a friend to borrow. After a while I asked if she was actually reading it and she said "Omg you should have kept reading right after the slow part it got so good!" and so I snatched it back and finished reading it. Yes it was good. So much drama in this young lady's (main char.) life it's sad but in the end... well I can't tell you what happens in the end haha!
