it was amazing

This delightful novel which was released on July 31st is a pleasure to read. Charity Shumway has successfully captured the angst of a twenty something young woman trying to find her way as a writer in New York City. Dawn was on a course to enter law school when she graduated but instead decided to give writing a try. She spends quite a bit of time pondering her relationship/non-relationship with college boyfriend Robert. Even though Robert has moved on she cannot get him out of her head and her heart.

Ten Girls to Watch is the central theme of the story. This is an annual contest in the fictional magazine Charm. Dawn is hired to track down the 50 years of winners and get their stories. During this process Dawn not only has her eyes opened by what these women have accomplished, she starts to become empowered herself. You really sympathize with Dawn and are cheering her on to find herself and find her self worth.

This is a very entertaining book. It is well written. It would be perfect for a woman's reading group. It also has prepared questions for a group at the end of the novel. They say to write what you know and Ms. Shumway has successfully done this.
