This was one of the hot releases of the fall, I suppose. I found that the characters were not well developed (really stereotypical, one-dimensional and flat) and the plot was non-existent. It is chic-lit in it's late 30's, i.e. mommy-lit. Sohn occassionally has a cute turn of phrase, but more often than not it seems like she is trying to hard to be cute, wry, insightful and/or witty. I've heard that Sarah Jessica Parker has already optioned this to be a movie - and I suppose it will be one of those confectionary summer hits. Yawn. It's all been done before. I gave this book two days and 100 pages, and was glad to put it down.
