really liked it

I give it a 3.5

hmmm . . . .what to say? Like others, the premise of this book (a mormon married housewife becoming best friends with a hollywood actor - her crush) made me a bit uncomfortable. I didn't quite know what to think of it. Becky & Felix's relationship, though, was definitely entertaining to read and follow - they had a fun, playful banter that made me smile, laugh.

Becky's relationship with her kids and her husband were simply precious, and very real. I found myself very emotionally involved in their journey & crisis. Definitely touched me.

The ending . . . hmmm. There were parts that drew me in and made me care and there were parts that were just, awkward and weird.
