What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty

I quite enjoyed reading this. It made me understand what an alien archaeologist might feel upon finding 21st century first-world earth women as portrayed in popular media. If all chick lit were this informative and entertaining, I would defend it.

Instead, everybody is scavenging or on the run from shadowy syndicates or evil authorities. It's pretty freaking awesome.

Malley has definitely read her Atwood, and I don't mind being able to spot the emulation. I liked the writing better than the other YA-dystopia-broody novels I've read lately (she writes rings around McCafferty, fr'instance). It's good enough that I ...more
