This is my favorite Sarah Mlynowski book so far. It was the second of three that I've finished so far and it was really good. One thing I didn't like as much is when the narrator directs the action. It was only found in a few chapters though, so it wasn't a huge deal. I just preferred hearing the story through the characters themselves. I really enjoyed the character Allie as she reminded me of a person I know in real life. I think a good novel will have characters that you can imagine meeting in real life and this book had that for me. Overall, an excellent Red Dress Ink book by one of my new favorite authors.
This is my all-time favorite chick lit novel! Mlynowski's writing style is very entertaining, the plot intricate. What I loved most was how the three roommates viewed each other - so funny and true to life!
