Helpful Score: 7

I love Jenny's fast paced and witty dialogue, but something rubbed me the wrong way about this book. I know that this is a work of fiction and people are flawed and make mistakes, yadda yadda, but...I get really irritated when grown ups make poor decisions when kids are involved. The husband is sleeping around and she bones her highschool sweetheart too soon I thought. I like to be courted by an author. I like to establish a relationship with a stories characters. This felt too rushed. Not Crusie's usual good read.
