it was amazing
Read in September, 2012

This is a funny, insightful, realistic story about a woman (who is far from perfect, therefore easily relate-able) who picks up the shattered pieces of her life and overcomes her past to become a better person. While that story line may seem like many other books, this one had me hysterically laughing one minute, and crying the next. I can see many pieces of Elly in myself, and the author does a great job of leaving the "gore" out of many novels that seem so popular these days. Fantastic read - recommending to everyone I can!!
