This book is a series of vignettes linking three main friends through stories of adjacent friends and a few featuring each other. Each story is triggered by a major life event in the group - break ups, engagements, bridal showers, weddings and babies - and covers their early to late 20's. The book explores what it means to be an adult and what happens when you don't follow the traditional "get married and have babies" track but everyone around you is.
The stories are relatable, especially for someone struggling to learn what being an adult really means in today's world. It's a quick read, the stories jump around and it doesn't develop the characters like a traditional novel. Be prepared to jump in, out and around the character's lives as you pick up the story with their life events.
I'll be honest and say that I ordered this book based on the cover (I know that say's a lot about me,but don't worry this review is coming from that of a successfully adult-ing 20 something.) Also, some of my followers on Pinterest kept re-pinning it, and so I thought I'd give it a try. It was a nice light read for the summer. However, the narrative of the story threw me off so much, that I had to constantly go back in the book to remember who was who. The description says that the book follows the lives of three friends, but I had to have read different chapters about at least six different girls. Isabella was the only character that can be easily identified as being one of the main characters from the beginning of the beginning to the end. She was also the only character to whom I could relate to. If it were not for her story line I probably would have stopped reading it two weeks ago. Other than that, this book was not really special to me, but will look really nice on my...
I really enjoyed this book. I was hesitant, because I saw a lot of bad reviews, but the plot really appealed to me so I bought it anyway. It is hard to decide whether or not you like a book based off of reviews, because everyone relates to a different style of writing and different character development. If it helps you any, I am 20 years old, and I felt that I could really relate to the girls in this book. The story line was not overly complicated, but it was a quick read and very enjoyable. Each chapter is told in short anecdotes, and focuses on a different character. The characters are all connected in different ways, but I thought it was easy to follow.
