    1. I really liked this book. It's ballsy, real and had just the right mix of character and story development. It's refreshing to see a book tackle a sensitive issue head on like this.

    2. I loved this. It struck a chord for me. It starts as though it's simple chick-lit, but gradually seeps into something more considered, more thoughtful and more provocative. It's funny, too, and a real page-turner. I would like everyone to read this book. A lot of people would benefit from it.
