I don't know if the author did a good enough job doing character development on this book. I rather enjoyed Dan, and her mother, but the main character wasn't that likeable to me. Emma was a child, and after her behavior not quite that great a friend. But then, Pheobe wasn't a great friend at all......

Her life isn't completely happy; however, because she's still trying to deal with the loss of her best friend. She blames her ...

I have a hard time coming up with a genre for this one, reviews have said it's a lovely romantic comedy and she is described as writing chick-lit. But first there is no humor in this one, and yes it has romance but not any more than a normal book. It's not focused on the romance., and i don't want t...
