Rose Feller is thirty; a successful lawyer with high hopes of a relationship with Jim, Mr Not-Quite-Right, a senior partner in her firm. The last thing she needs is her messed-up, only occasionally employed sister Maggie moving in: drinking, smoking, stealing her money - and her shoes - and spoiling her chance of romance. If only Maggie would grow up and settle down with a nice guy and a steady job. Maggie is drop dead gorgeous and irresistible to men. She's going to make it big as a TV presenter, or a singer...or an actress. All she needs is a lucky break. What she doesn't need is her uptight sister Rose interfering in her life. If only Rose would lighten-up, have some fun - and learn how to use a pair of tweezers. Rose and Maggie think they have nothing in common but a childhood tragedy, shared DNA and the same size feet, but they are about to find out that they're more alike than they'd ever believe.

Great book. The story is told with a truthfulness where there is room for rivalry between siblings and the pain it’s costing. However, it is told with so much humor and easiness you don’t want to put the book down. Some situations are not that believable, but still, the story as whole wil...
One of the few times I've actually enjoyed the movie better than the book. I found the pace of the book to be slow and even after skipping some chapters ultimately did not finish.
