Jennifer Weiner's latest effort cannot hold a candle to her earlier efforts. Although the story tried to be somewhat of a mystery, it really wasn't thrilling at all. The characters were difficult to relate to, and did not have much depth. I actually almost set the book down 2/3 of the way through, but decided after a week's break to go ahead and finish it. The ending was predictable.

Cute chick-lit book. Very witty and full of humor. I just thought the author obsessed with the character's past overwieght issued too much. The story was fun and entertaining - but I was disappointed with the ending. I was left feeling "that's it?"

In the readers guide in the back of the book the author says You wont have your parents around forever, or your children but a good friend can be forever. I had forgotten how much I enjoy reading Weiner. I used to read her books many years ago but I have moved away from chic lit and hadnt read anything of her recently. But this book was very entertaining. It made me laugh and made me cry. I will share this with my best friend from childhood.

It was a great light read and keeps you on your toes. Great views of different drama that can happen in real life.

Loved this. It's quite funny with an overall happy story but there's some sad underlying issues. The young girl describing trying to reconcile the mother she saw and knew (soft and pretty and happy) with the woman the other kids saw (fat and therefore ugly and deserving of ridicule) is heartbreaking.

If you're a fan of this author as I am, you'll likely be disappointed. I've read many of her books and most are heart warming and humorous and while this one did have moments, I found the story line pretty unbelievable and scattered it was a little hard to get through. An OK read.

This book was such a great story about two women who were best friends growing up, then drifted apart for many years, and found each other again.
