Baggott tries, and tries hard, but this novel never really takes off. The prose is mediocre and an editor should have caught some of the grammatical errors. Meanwhile, the characters are rather one-dimensional and the novel never adequately "grabs you" like a good book should.

Give this book a go if you're looking for a summer read. It will entertain you, but ultimately it leaves you feeling as though you wasted your time.

Good chick lit book.

This looks like chick-lit but was really a coming of age novel focusing on the relationship between three generations of women. I had a difficult time finding any of the characters sympathetic and did not find the story enjoyable.

I liked it - so did others:

-- Glamour --
A smart, quirky chronicle of mother-daughter bonding and binding.


-- USA Today --
What really makes this book a good read is the way Baggott allows her readers to get into her characters' feelings....She kindly allows one to care about how each character reacts to one another.

This is a wonderful book for girls that are very close with their mothers. My mother is my best friend, and a friend of mine bought me this book bc it reminded her of me. (:
