it was ok

I read this book because one of my students lent it to me and I wanted to be able to talk about it with her. To be honest, I wanted to quit reading it after the first 20 pages. I didn't really like the style of writing (all emails, IM's, and journal entries) and the plot was a bit too dumb for me. I ended up pushing through though because of the recommendation and the book did get better. My favorite part of the whole thing was the last email from the father...

"I can see how this information might be upsetting to some of you. However, I had a near death experience a year ago, and it taught me one thing: Don’t waste your time on stupid shit. And frankly, all I seem to hear from some of you people is stupid shit."

Hehe that sentence alone made the book worth it ;) Because really, the entire book was about silly drama and 'stupid shit'. But then again, what chick lit book isn't?

In the end ... It makes a fine beach read, but I can think of many other chick lit books I would recommend before this one!

Michelle This book has been sitting on my shelf for years, and based off of what you said, it'll probably still be sitting there for many more.
