A contemporary novel addressing modern day problems faced by women. These are serious problems that are dealt with through laughter, friendship and tears. Those who are fans of the 'Sex and the City' or 'Desperate Housewives' generation will enjoy this read. It is chick lit., but has depth that separates it from the fluff stereotype. However, it isn't so heavy that it becomes depressing. There is a perfect mix of humor and realism that many readers will relate to. If you can't relate to issues or friendship bonds commonly featured in contemporary novels and shows (i.e. Sex in the City), then this read probably wouldn't interest you. Like most reads, personal experiences will dictate whether a reader can connect with the issues faced by the characters.
