i have to say i really enjoyed this book
it was HILARIOUS at times and shocking too.

i like the characters and the plot lines and it explored a lot of themes.
issues like sexual harassment, mother-in-laws, crazy families but the biggest thing was about love, friendship and trust.

it was really annoying about the whole debt thing but FINALLy i am so glad she told her sister and it worked out because DAMN WHAT A BURDEN man but i totally understand why she kept it quiet.

and the sexual harassment thing was so PAINFUL to read!!!

nirvana- i like her and she deserves to be happy but omg anil nope and his family are insane no thank you. it is very true with certain cultures you marry INTO a family.

esma- i like her. she's strong willed an dopinionated and she's cool. i like that yes she does volunteer but she also loves shopping lol. and i am so glad she made the right decision witht he guy. but woah what a journey.

lisa- i really like her. though we know the least about her probs coz her work is her life but she's a good friend.

ruby- she's lovely and i felt really bad for her but yay...i think when it comes to love sometimes you can't help WHO it's gonna be and no they might not be from the same socioeconomic background as you but it CAN work out if you TRY and make the effort etc.

i like esma's family and felt bad for her dad and for misjudging her mum.
the whole trying to find a husband thing...oh how painful the online dating stories were so funny though. but matchmaking too...how awkward.

but good for esma for standing her ground and yay for her parents for giving her space and letting her make her own choices.

i love the group of kids she worked with they were wonderful.

all in all it was a good story and had me laughing a lot and i almost teared up at one point.

i am a hopeless romantic and reading about two people falling in love is beyond adorable and just oh MY HEART

the ending. was perfect.

so yes. READ THIS book is you want a good laugh, a story about friendship and love, of family and sacrifice and of finding love and of TRUST.

basically...this book tells you RELATIONSHIPS ARE ALL ABOUT TRUST. and yes that is true. they are. whether it's family, friends or romantic relationship YOU HAVE TO BE HONEST AND HAVE TRUST.
no it isnt easy but if you really care about the person they deserve the truth.

anyways Happy Reading!

btw it's an adult book but any1 over 15 can read it. it's not really explicit or anything. maybe just the topics or themes and because the characters are adults.
