I have read several of Jennifer Weiner's books, but I just didn't like this one. The story is about two best friends, Valerie and Addie, who end up growing apart after a disasterous night out when they are in high school. We see the girls as young friends and we learn how their home environments end up shaping their lives. Unfortunately, I found the character development to be flat. I didn't like Val's character at all. She used people and then reconnected with Addie again years later just because she was in trouble and once again needed help.

I found their Thelma and Louise like road trip to be lame as well. It just didn't jive with the story. The ending with the quick romance was not believable either and the character of Jordan, the cop, was truly a messed up one. I usually like Jennifer Weiner's humor as well, but for me, this story wasn't her best written one.
