I believe this is one of Kristin's best works yet. I hope she'll keep writing as she just keeps getting better and better. Trust me, you'll want to read the rest of her books once you pick one of hers up.
But this book, wow, keep a box of tissues nearby. You'll be laughing and crying right along with Sarah. And everyone can relate to something in this book, be it family troubles, boyfriend troubles, career troubles, gushing over a star, and wondering about life in general.
Read this book for any reason, because you don't need one to read it. And just remember to keep the tissues nearby.
Good Book. I will have to read more by this author. Fast pace and funny at times.
I am not a religious/Christian person, so I don't have a lot of insight into what it would be like to be a 20-something Christian woman, but in the 3 or 4 of these "Christian Chick Lit" books I have read these women are always portrayed as weak, immature and insecure with no sense of themselves. I wonder if I were a Christian woman- would I be offended by this portrayal?
I understand that Sarah's upbringing and dealings with her mother contributed to the way she saw the world, but at times I just found her infuriating and the ending to be silly and unrealistic.
That being said- I didn't hate this book, but I didn't love it either. It was a fast, easy read with a few interesting characters and a few funny moments.
I love this author, although this was not my favorite of hers.
Got this book on a whim. I'm a stylist so I was intrigued with the idea of a Read in my "neck of the woods" of work. Not a usual topic. Also was braced for the fact that it would be LAME. It also had Christian background... so I gave it a second look since it had a little religious influence. I was braced for a flop but was cracked up with the Authors style of "flippancy" with what life was throwing at the Main Character... and being real with it! Great Great Read! I'm getting a second book to see if I can "officially" make her a new Favorite Author of mine! I'm SO crossing my fingers. ;o)
