it was amazing

A beautifully written novel about life, loss and growing up. Anyone who has gone through a life-altering event that knocks your well-ordered life off its axis willbe able to relate, laugh and cry with Rachel. I haven't been divorced, but I have had my preconceived notions of how my life would pan out shot to smithereens from underneath me, and so I loved Rachel's journey to self-discovery and a better understanding of who she is and what she wants.

The writing was wonderful, sparkling and witty with a terrific voice, well-paced and leavened with equal parts humor and pathos. I rooted for Rachel from her first blog entry, and had to be forced to put the Kindle down. Melissa Ford is now on my auto-buy list, although I am bit hesitant about the announced sequel - I loved the ending she gave Rachel and really don't wish the character any more tsouris!
