Loved loved loved this book. I read it in about 3 hours. I could relate with mostly all that she was saying (especially the dating part) and found that I laughed and cried.

I wanted to love this book, considering that it centers around the premise of my own life circumstances -- navigating the disparate worlds of dating and single parenting.

I was so engrossed by Rachel's book, I tried to read it at stoplights while I drove. (Which I don't recommend--not only because of the whole safety thing, but because it's just too hard to find your place again. You'll get more reading done if you just pull over to the side of the road.) ...more

She seems to make a series of bad choices. Maybe I'd like it better if it was at least funny. ...more
