it was ok
bookshelves: chicklit

** spoiler alert ** This book took me forever to read. Mainly because I thought it was really really boring. How could I not see it from the title? First off, it wasn't written in first person, which I always like better. It was also written very much like all the Irish books I read, Girl counts on guy to "save" her and complete her life, except that it was Canadian instead.

Overweight girl somehow manages to snag some guy and becomes pregnant, so they have to marry. She ends up loosing the baby, but they get married and stay together anyway. On their 25th anniversary, said guy leaves her without even a note. Girl doesn't believe that he has really left for a while, but then does and runs off to California, where his mother lives, to find him. Of course, this is the part of the book where her life turns around, thanks to the help of some friendly strangers! Blah. I just don't care. And I hate girls that lean and count on men for everything. Get your head out of the sand and do it yourself, bitch!

Kim Brown Awesome review... I completely agree, I flipped through this book and then just couldn't bear to read it, seemed like it would make me crazy. Your review solidified that.
