Ugh. I'm glad I didn't pay for this book - yay for ARCs!

I can't really put my finger on what went wrong here, but apparently I have a mutation on my chick-lit gene that predisposes my knee to jerk up suddenly when I find myself in the middle of a coming-of-age novel. This recipe has too much sugar for my taste.


This ARC was provided to me by the publisher via my local Indie bookstore, and no money was exchanged.

Teresa Your reviews make my day...I know I've told you this before, but it bears repeating every month or so. ;)

I have the same reaction to chick-flicks, so I know what you mean. (As soon as I see the phrase "romantic comedy," I run screaming in the other direction.)


Velma Aw, shucks. ;)

I actually really enjoy romantic comedies - go figure.

And I'm quite in the minority on this book; there were some lovely descriptive passages early on, but it just wasn't "me".
