There is just something about Jennifer Weiner that I love. It could be that she is less than skinny, sort of Jewish, and from Philly (remind you of anyone?). Maybe I am vain, but I like books that I can relate to (at least a little bit) and that remind me of things that I growing up Jewish, struggling with weight and then learning to love yourself, crazy hair, and of course all of the wonders of Philadelphia. And then of course there are things that I can't relate to in this a crummy family, having a deaf child (or a child at all), and a rotten dad. This book is entertaining and a nice sequel to one of my all time favorites, "Good in Bed". The only thing that I wasn't thrilled about was the chapters that are written from the teenagers point of view that make you feel like you are reading a book written for teenagers. I guess that means she did a good job with the character, but I found it annoying as I don't frequently read teeny bopper lit. And I guessed the ending from about page 2. But it was a fun read. Definitely a recommendation for beach week.
