I accidentally purchased this book while trying to search for another. It just sat in my queue until the other day..Then I just pressed play.This story kept me interested. It was a little unbelievable at times, but I liked that because it allowed me to imagine what I would do in the situations Davie was putting herself in. I was upset when this book was over..and that leads me to my only con with the story..The ending felt rushed..I wanted just a little more there.All in All I definitely recommend this book!
The story was fascinating.
It was so believable.
I really liked the main character and her life story of strength and overcoming obstacles.
I wouldn't change a thing.
Loved this book! Especially the little twist between then and now. My husband loved it too, which is very rare.
I hated this book. The writing was so contrived and trivial. I kept listening hoping it would get better...but it didn't.
The turns the story lines took turns that were completely unbelievable. This book was craptastic at best. Descriptions of the characters and their appearances didn't make sense at times. I really don't know what everyone else saw in this story.
O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught. Ralph Waldo Emerson. I Love to read, a great time for me is curling up with a great book!!!
This is one of those books that really resounded with me.
The writer was able to wring a whole host of emotions out of me.
I was sympathetic towards the heroine, I got exiceted when it looked like eveything was comming together for her and then I was shocked because i felt like i had been tricked.
I thought i knew her, but i found out i really had no idea of her depth. Then I wept when she so selflessly made amends.
Say something about yourself!
I really enjoyed the first half of this story, but honestly it was painful to listen to the rest. I really had to make myself finish it. I usually like debut novels but found for the second time that is not a qualifer for a good story.
Do not waste the credit.
The twist and turns of this book kept me interested. I was sometimes angry at the main character's choices, but it keep the book going. I enjoyed it. It also had a bit more cursing than I would have wanted to hear.
Perfect for the character.

I loved this story. I grew up watching the "Molly Ringwald" movies and I too was wishing I could have my Molly moment. Thankfully my challenges were more about shyness and teenage angst and no where near what Davie went through. But I could totally feel her pain. It was a story I didn't want to turn off. It also had many surprises that made it much less predictable then I assumed it would be. It was so good.
I absolutely loved this book! From the start I was enchanted with Davidia Jones, an ugly duckling who learns to finally be comfortable in the skin she's in. I identified so much with Davidia! I saw the end coming from page one but still I cried and jumped on the phone to call as many people as I could to share the warm and fuzzy feeling I got at its conclusion.
Plenty of laugh out loud moments, memorable characters, and quotes I will forever remember ("I will never let a man hand me an Invitation to Crazy".) - this book is well deserving of a 5-star ratin
I loved this book! It was one that I was really sad when it was over because I felt like I knew the characters. I was reminded that you never know where people come from or what they've had to face.
