Wow. I really did not think books could be this bad, but yes, this was that bad. It was boring, incredibly boring, and there was no point to it at all. Katie is kind of a whore, she is irresponsible, she is foolish, and she is unlikable. I suffered through reading this just so I could review it and honestly say how bad it was. Ugh.
Oh my goodness! This one took me forever. I should have abandoned it a long time ago but have you ever read a book thinking , it's bound to get better?
I am sorry I just couldn't connect to this one.

Some books are great and others are horrible, good and bad even. SilkyDreamGirl suffered from being none of these. It was, in fact, just ok.
Katie triumphs over bad men, bad jobs, and bad debt. A very witty and inspirational book.
Awesome! I read this book in like 3 days!
