Chick lit consists of several categories. This one fits for chicks over 40--i.e. it's still girl-like emotional and men stuff but stuff chicks of my age (mid-40s) can actually relate to. All in all, it was a fairly decent book. At times I just wanted to take the protagonist by the shoulders and say, "Snap out of it!" but it came clear that the author intended Mira to be a flawed individual--a nice but flawed and a somewhat irritating. I did like that the author allowed most of her characters to have some growth within the story. So often we only see the protagonist change. I was taken with the ability to shirk my responsibilites aside, just run away, and then work at a Bohemian Coffee Bar in Seattle. I can't tell you how many times I just want to throw my hands up to responsibility and just have a different life. That part of the book appealed to me greatly. Great book for a rainy or snowy day where you can sit and escape.
