Giffin's best novel, in my opinion. Darcy, who we are taught to nearly hate in Something Borrowed, becomes our protagonist. At first, I could barely stand "listening" to Darcy's insipid inner monologue. Again, though, Giffin manipulates the reader, pulling him or her right into the story. Before I knew it, I was rooting for Darcy--hoping that she would find happiness and become the kind of person she had always wanted to be. The ability to take the reader on an emotional roller coaster, whipping and snapping them whichever way she pleases, is definitely Giffin's strong point. Somehow, she pulls out the good in even the most irritating, trite characters and asks us to sympathize, to see ourselves in them, and we do.
