  • Great!

    I loved this book. I like how it is all emails in it. At the beginning I was confused, but other than that it was a great enjoyable book.
  • Fun light read from her grown- ups works

    This was a fun light read for older youth and grown-ups. Great to take on holiday as it is set in Italy. enjoyed the afterward where she elucidated how this was semi-autobiographical. Writing style with jumps between email, blogs and travel-journaling kept the novel moving and was more effectively used than in other chick lit. Def recommend.
