it was amazing

This book was recommended to me by a friend, and I'm gonna be honest, I was a little skeptical of it. I am not one to really get into girly books: books about shopping, and dating, and partying. I usually like the more dramatic fiction, but I fell in love with this one!

The story is ultimately about two sisters: the free spirit, partying, beautiful sister, and the uptight, chunky, plain sister. The only thing these sisters have in common is the death of their mother and shoes. So begins the story. Maggie and Rose are characters that anyone with a sister can relate to. After Maggie does something horrible to her sister, they each try to go their separate ways, and walking in the other sister's shoes (hence the title).

In the end, the sisters end up happily back together, in the most adorable ways possible, and each come out better for it. The poem that Maggie read at the end was heartbreaking, and really shows how tight the bonds of sisterhood can be. A definate tear-jerker (but in a happy way), and one of my new favorite books. Can't wait to read Good in Bed!
