Gamrah's faith in her new husband is not exactly returned... Sadeem is a little too willing to please her fiance... Michelle is half-American and the wrong class for her boyfriend's family... While Lamees works hard with little time for love. The girls of Riyadh are young, attractive and living by Saudi Arabia's strict cultural traditions. Well, not quite. In-between sneaking out behind their parents' backs, dating, shopping, watching American TV and having fun, they're still trying to be good little Muslim girls. That is, pleasing their families and their men. But can you be a twenty-first century girl and a Saudi girl?

This book was so wonderful. I enjoyed it very much to read it! But I feel very sorry for the girls living their. I can't imagine to live under such rules and traditions!

This book reminds me of the Saudi version of Life isn't all ha ha hee hee, which I didn't like. This was a very girlie book about the ups and downs of romances written in the form of a girl doing an email weekly serial about her friends and sending it to email subscribers. The format annoyed me as the start of each email was her going on about herself in the intro and I started skipping this to get to the actual story in each chapter. I didn't find it inspiring or well written so I went on to another book.
