1.) Reasons you chose this book
Many of my blogging friends have read this author's past work and really enjoyed it. When I was offered the chance to read her latest release I relished the opportunity!

2.) Reasons you liked or disliked this book
I thought the author did a really great job of bringing the three women's friendship to a complete circle in the end of the story but there were a few times when I wasn't totally believing Cate and Renee's connection with Abby. That part I felt could have been more fleshed out and then I'm sure I would've bought into that storyline a bit more. I loved Renee's vulnerability and I think many of us that have faced weight issues could see a bit of ourself in her. Cate was a woman that I thought I could be friends with and I understood why she distanced herself from having a relationship. I could also understand how reckless and careless one can be when wildly in love at twenty. I felt her pain.

3.) Reasons you are recommending this book
This was a good read about friendships and the lengths that a person would go to in order to GET that job. I'm always game for books that center around women and their friendships so if you're interested in those themes this would be a book to add to your wish list!
