This book should not be classified as "chick-lit" although the themes of dating and love are prevalent throughout the book. Unlike the pop genre, this book has a much more literary tone and proceeds with a story that more accurately resembles real life's struggle with love than the idealized portrayals of love commonly found in the chick-lit genre. despite this recognition, I found the book to be difficult at times to read and follow and it left me with few lasting impressions.

This collection of stories is a loosely formed novel about Jane Rosenthal. The book precedes from her initial questions about love as a teenager through her own experiences of love. Jane can't quite see herself as lovable until the end of the book. Her relationships demonstrate the different forms love can take and question the artificiality of much in love.
