    Cannie Shapiro never wanted to be famous. The smart, sharp, plus-sized pop culture reporter was perfectly content writitng about other people's lives in the pages of the Philadlphia Examiner. But the day she opened up a national women's magazine to find out that her ex-boyfriend has been chronicling their ex-sex life is the day her life changes forever.

    Now Cannie's back. After her debut novel - a fictionalized (and highly sexualized) version of her life - became an overnight bestseller, she dropped out of the public eye and turned to writing science fiction under a pseudonym. She's happily married and has settled into a life that's wonderfully predictable. As preparations for her daughter Joy's bat mitzvah begin, everything seems right in Cannie's world. Then Joy discovers the novel Cannie wrote years before and suddenly finds herself faced with what she thinks is the truth about her own conception - the story her mother hid.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes


    What other book might you compare Certain Girls to and why?

    Good in Bed. Because it was the sequel.


    Have you listened to any of Julie Dretzin and Rachel Botchan ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Haven't listened to any of their performances before


    Any additional comments?

    At first I was a little put off with Julie's narration, but only because I had listened to the previous book with a different narrator. As I listened I found myself liking her narration better than the previous book. I found both narrators to be very believable. I enjoyed the book tremendously.
