Review quote

" Giffin' s writing is true, smart, and heartfelt. Claudia is both flawed and achingly real." --"Entertainment Weekly" " Smart, snappy . . . sure to provoke discussion." --"People Magazine" " [The characters are] funny and flawed, ambitious and insecure, relatable enough to feel like a good friend while enduring dramatic crises enough for a dozen women." --"Elle" " [An] entertaining and unpredictable quest." --"Redbook"show more
