Which of the following would you cast your vote for? 

My book group is primarily female, late 20s - early 30s. We usually shy away from chick lit in favor of first person accounts, books about other cultures, and the like. This month, we read 'A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius'.  Here are the four I'm bringing! Cast your vote, and I'll let you know what they chose :)

Body and Soul :: Frank Conroy

Charity Girl :: Michael Lowenthal

The Ghost Orchid: A Novel :: Carol Goodman

An Invisible Sign of My Own :: Aimee Bender

I was also most interested in reading Charity Girl, and when I brought the books to my group, each of the 4 women thought all of the books looked interesting, and each professed a different favorite... so I was the tie breaker. :)
