When I picked up this book, I had no idea it was like one of those stories featured in self-help books that make us believe that after a few pages you can solve your problems. I don’t think after I’ve finished reading the book I was convinced of this possibility, maybe because in real life our problems aren’t limited by pages but years. I never take self-help books too seriously, but this is a total different experience, and it was truly pleasant to read about this group of friends who are willing to do anything to be united.

Unfortunately, I found the same problems previously noted in one of the authors books, namely the poor edition work. Some grammar errors, too many paragraphs, and a lot of “Twat’s”. When this word first appeared I thought it was a grammatical error, but then it started to repeat continuously and it quickly became irritating. I think the edition of the book needed a little more attention.

Nonetheless, I found this to be a light and easy read, a feel good story about an altruistic girl who likes to help others and is fortunate to have friends in her life who “take action” instead of waiting around for her to escape from their lives. I wish I had friends like that. All in all, a simple book that talks about current problems in our society. The sense of humor was much appreciated, and the overall message that the simple things in life are the most valuable. The ending is appropriately open for the reader to decide how Jamie will react to this new twist in her life.
