Read in June, 2012

I picked up this book as one that was advertised as "humor." While there were characters that were funny at times, especially the heroine Bailey and her best friend Rudy, I didn't find this book all that funny. It was better than that...a touching and poignant story about a 30 year old woman struggling to find her place in her family (feels like odd person out) her career (she gets demoted and quits) and her love life (so complicated!). While many female readers can relate to Bailey's struggles, this male reader enjoyed the story because it was.touching and nearly every character no matter his or her significance, all played a role into shaping Bailey as the woman she becomes at the end of the story. I thought the humor was low key - not LOL funny. Good read - four stars.
