I am not your typical “chick lit” wweisberger, but I must confess that I really like this author – she writes bright, funny, light-hearted books and she can actually compose a sentence! They’re characters I’d want to hang out with – girls who feel more comfortable in sweats than couture and who prefer a night in with the dog than a night out at the hottest new club.
