Book Review of Certain Girls (Cannie Shapiro, Bk 2)

Certain Girls (Cannie Shapiro, Bk 2)
reviewed on
Helpful Score: 5

I love Jennifer Weiner's novels and this latest is no disappointment. I disagree with other reviews indicating that the book is predictable as I found it anything but predictable. The book did not take a conflict and tie everything up in a nice cute bow to make everyone happy. There are good times but there are a lot of difficult and incredibly tragic elements as well. I like enjoyable fun books and while this book was overall an uplifting experience, there were a lot of sad and very real elements in the book which made me connect with the characters. As a mother, I could relate to a lot of what the protagonists felt and it gave me a little heads up to raising a teenager...yikes! If you enjoy thought provoking and entertaining material, you will love this book
