I received this as a Christmas present and didn't know anything about it (I'm out of touch with what book clubs were reading last year). I put it on my list to read in February and I actually finished this a couple of weeks ago (amazing considering it is 444 pages). I found myself hoping I'd be stuck in traffic or have to wait for dance class to finish so I could read a few more pages. There were a few things I didn't appreciate about this novel and therefore will not allow my daughter (12) to read it. I was disappointed in the ending, but this book made me laugh out loud and cry. It is fiction and therefore the things I do not like about this book are merely my opinion. There are thousands of reviews on Amazon and I can agree with both the favorable and the negative.
