I read this book like I was listening to a friend 'dish', it was very easy to read and I really enjoyed Stephanie's writing style... it was refreshing. You know if you go out and do a long workout and then later in the day spoil yourself with a little treat? That's the way I felt when I was reading this book... I have pretty hectic days most of the time and to curl up with such a fun, spirited and 'spunky' for lack of a better term, novel was a much needed mini-vacation for me. Never a dull moment; even though some pretty serious subjects are touched upon, the character's distinct personalities keep things exciting and light, all things considered.
It's also very cool that the author first self-published this as an e-book and it was on the New York Times Best-seller list for six weeks before she signed with a publisher (Woo hoo Penguin!).
