Pinch Me is a fun, quirky read which accomplishes just what it sets out to do: it allows the reader to suspended their beliefs for a few hours and be charmed by the antics of an entire family of goofy women. While billed as Chick Lit, Adena Halpern's latest installment is so much more; its a testament to the power of love and an authors ability to simply make the reader smile as they turn that last page. This book is the perfect antidote to a really bad day.

Lily finds the man that she wants to marry in Gogo (I know why would you name a character Gogo?). Even after all the warning from her family she runs off and elopes. I thought it was endearing to still believe in love even though she didn't have an example to live up to. The curse really does exist, which gives this very chick lit read a little twist.
With an ease to its reading, this book was a quick read that would be perfect for a week at the beach. I thought it was a great take on a chick lit classic storyline. It made the story feel fresh and new. I would recommend this book to all the fans of the chick lit genre.
I found the back-story as to why Lily finds herself without Gogo after he pinches her after they marry. I won't spoil it and tell you what the curse is that made Lily go back to being a single girl with no Gogo in her life, because it's a wonderful story you need to read about while you read the novel. Honestly, it's worth it, I promise. A lot of authors wouldn't be able to pull off this novel, and I was initially sceptical about this so-called curse, but it was fascinating once we learn all about it. I found the alternate universe Lily finds herself in with a substandard Gogo, who's married to someone else, to be both emotional and intriguing as Lily tries to figure out a way to get her life back. The love between Lily and Gogo before the curse kicks in was beautiful to read, so much so that I was so sad for Lily when she learns in the new/alternate universe that Gogo is married to his college sweetheart.Read more ›
