I really wish that I could have given this book 3.5 stars. Like all of Weiner's books, it was very well written and engaging. A follow up to her first book Good In Bed, this story shoots us ahead 13 years as Cannie prepares for her daughter Joy's bat mitzvah. I had a few problems with the book... First, in this book Cannie has written a story about a portion of her life and is dealing with the repercussions of this. This gets a bit confusing when she starts talking about the things that she wrote and you're trying to match it up with what you remember from Good In Bed. The second issue is that it was a bit overly dramatic for me. I don't really expect that from Weiner's books and the drama sometimes felt forced. I think that it is worth reading, but I do not think that it was her best work.
