A hip and heartwarming story of what it means to be a girl and what it takes to become a woman.

When Lilly's best friend, Maya, gets engaged, the tenuous peace treaty Lilly thought she had finally established with her perennially single self shows itself to be as long-lasting as shoulder pads and frozen yoghurt. Wavering wildly between ecstasy and envy, serial dater and retail-therapy shopper, Lilly vows to get her life together.

While sipping lattes from the Coffee Bean and planning forever with Maya, Lilly embarks on an uproariously comical and strikingly poignant ride of transformation, told through a series of delightfully engaging interior monologues. Travelling the byways of her own past, Lilly learns to be optimistic about her future and relish her new-found 'chic-dom'. In a voice that grows stronger, louder and more articulate than she ever imagined, Lilly ultimately comes to embrace her on-the-verge-of-womanhood status in all its uncertain yet exciting glory.

Depicting the comic adventures of being a grown-up still coming of age, Rebecca Bloom evocatively and enthusiastically reveals tender truths about friendship and true love.

I liked this book, even though it sometimes was a bit too neurotic for my taste. Lilly's behaviour is very recognizable...

OOOH YES! A chicklit! I have received so much thrillers (Not that I'm going to complain... I love thrillers, but it is so nice to receive a chicklit). Thank you AnnevO. The book looks brandnew. The author did me remind of the character in the "shopaholic"-novels: het name is Rebecca BloomWOOD :)

Update: I've read the book and I must admit that it was kind of disappointing. I have made up this rule that I have to read until page 100 and then decide whether to go through with it or to stop. I've only reached page 85.... Yes, the story is kind of neurotic, but I also found it a bit depressing: Lilly isn't satisfied with her life and she is constantly nagging about it instead of improving it.

I'm so sorry, AnnevO. I really don't mean to complain about your gift. You did a wonderful job sending me a chicklit :) Unfortunately this book wasn't really my cup of tea.

RELEASE NOTES:

Maybe a nice book, but not quite my 'taste'. So I shall release it soon. Because it is my first book catched as a bookcrosser, I shall remeber it.

Kan best een heel aardig boek zijn, maar is niet geheel mijn smaak en bovendien in het Engels. Ik lees enkel in het Engels als een boek me héél erg aanstaat (en niet in het Nederlands voorhanden is) Ik ben pas sinds enkele dagen "bookcrosser" en dit is het eerste boek dat ik gevangen heb. Heel leuk, ik zal het boek dus niet vergeten; ondanks dat het mijn bedoeling is om het snel weer te'releasen'.
