I loved this book, it was truly a breath of fresh air. I listened to it quite a long time ago, and wish I could find another one like it. The lead characters weren't beautiful and perfect and young, which made the story even better.

A very entertaining book with a terrific narrator. I did find myself rolling my eyes at the sticky situations that the lead character kept landing in, but otherwise I loved the book. Would certainly recommend it as a great chick-lit read.
