did not like it
Read from February 19 to 21, 2012

I kept waiting for this book to get better and it just never did. The main character (Tessa) was annoying and for most of the book I wanted to smack her. She wasn't at all likable and I could not understand how the other characters could stand to be friends with her. Also, this book had way too many little issues hanging around the periphery that in the hands of a good writer would have aided in serious character development (like Tessa's mom and apparently crappy childhood that we are never told about in any detail but is hinted at). That this book was predictable wasn't a problem in part because it just had so many other serious problems. I think I need to stick to Emily Giffin as my source of chick lit.
