really liked it
Recommended for: Ellen

One of our library patrons recommend this, and since the author is at Lynchburg College this semester and will be speaking next month, I decided to give it a try.

I am not a huge fan of short stories, but I did like this collection. Many of the stories are interconnected and I liked seeing what happened to so-and-so from another story. I particularly liked "Prom Season" where a teacher tells the class that everyone must ask someone to the prom. It was sweet, but not fluffy. "Rehearsal Dinner" had a scene involving extreme hunger, a drive-thru window and a rental car that made me laugh. "Calamity" was suspenseful and thought-provoking. Kalotay has a wonderful sense of humor and there is depth to her stories. I can't wait to meet her in October!

I recommend this to Ellen because there are a couple of stories involving weddings :)
