Witty and well-written, there is something in this for all ages. One may think it's geared toward teenagers, but once you get reading it and start to sympathize with the characters, you realize it's something you can really relate to. I highly suggest it for anyone looking for a light-hearted read that will make you think and appreciate the ladies in your life.
A great summer read! Very similar to the movie, but you get more insight on the characters. I found myself trying to figure out which one each of my friends in high school would have been. I am in my early twenites and it brought back great memories of when I was younger and saw my friends more frequently.
