Since my 26 year old daughter is a part time college student I gave this book to her and then asked her about a few days later. She told me that the book has some great insight to college life, especially from a woman's point of view. She said that she is learning a lot from reading this book and that it's an easy read and she would recommend this book to other women who are attending college. She gives it a huge 2 thumbs up and told me that when she is done with it, her one college friend wants to read it next.
The advice provided in this book is helpful to young women as it provides an accurate description of what it is like as a female college student today's society.
