really liked it
bookshelves: 8th-grade
Read from October 07 to 18, 2010

I think that this book is very chick flick-y and definitley for girls. What I like about it so much is that the author really lets you get into the characters heads and gives a detailed description of what they are like, so you can really visualize what the characters look/feel/think like.

I sort of agree and sort of disagree with this because she has always been the one to follow rules and was always the wall flower, so now its her time, not Darcy's, and it is always about her."

What's to loose, you know? She wouldn't really be leaving anything good, with her superficial shallow best friend marrying the one man she loves and can never be with, so why not just go? In a sentence, she could start a new life"

After the news of the called of wedding, Darcy went to Rachel's apartment and told her. She also found out there that Rachel was having an affair with Dex, and she turned out having an affair with Marcus, (Rachel's ex guy)"
