Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The Cassel sisters find solace in one another as they stumble through divorce, child-rearing and existential crises in Gaskell's third novel. Each outspoken sister narrates her own trials in this pleasant, lighthearted read. In typical eldest-child fashion, controlling divorce attorney Paige keeps a tight rein on her emotions as she comes to terms with her gay ex-husband and shies away from an over-eager boyfriend. Social, emotional Sophie gives birth to her first child and then struggles with post-partum depression, a shaky marriage and a crush on her pediatrician. Their baby sister, restless Mickey, flexes her newfound adult independence by giving up medical school in favor of a culinary career, falling hard for a married chef in the process. Connecting the tales are the three sisters' easy camaraderie and their bemused horror when their divorced parents reunite. The Cassel sisters' problems are never very menacing-they attract bland men and succeed professionally with ease-and it's difficult to sympathize with their dithering; Paige's realization that she doesn't know what she wants applies to all three. Fortunately, none linger in indecision in this slight novel, and Gaskell moves each sister along to a frothy but ultimately satisfying conclusion.

From Booklist

Reviewers called Gaskell's Pushing 30 (2003) and True Love (and Other Lies) (2004) breezy. Her new humorous romance full of family issues and entanglements is breezy, too. Its genuine, straightforward heroine, divorce attorney Paige Cassel, provides the feeling of solid, or at least not squishy, ground for her family, set off-kilter when her husband belatedly mentions the small detail of his gay sexual orientation and quickly becomes an ex. Paige's divorced parents, who survived a tumultuous split, have required grounding, too, but are now getting ever-so-cozy again--too cozy for Paige and her younger sisters' comfort. Moreover, Zack, the hunky contractor working for Paige's very pregnant, hormonally raging sister Sophie, who has precipitously decided on a kitchen makeover as childbirth looms, is threatening sisterly bonds. If a mite improbable, Paige's simultaneous travails are movie-ishly entertaining. Whitney Scott

It moved at fast pace, and Whitney Gaskell did a good job of developing full characters that the reader can care about.

Format: Paperback
"She, Myself and I" is the story of three sisters, Paige, Sophie and Mickey. As such, it's really three novellas rolled into a book. The first novella is from Paige's point of view. Paige is a sharp, shrewd, commitment-phobic lawyer. She recently got divorced from her gay husband, and she plays games with her new boyfriend to keep him at a distance. He doesn't appreciate this, and she may have lost a good thing...

The second novella is from Sophie's point of view. Sophie, who was pregnant during Paige's story, has just had a baby, Ben. Sophie hates her husband, Aidan, for not helping out enough with Ben, and she hates him even more when she gets a load of his favorite websites. And her son's pediatrician is looking awfully good.

The third novella is from Mickey's point of view. Mickey is the youngest sister and still trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life, career-wise. She got into Brown Medical School, but she's not so sure she wants to go there. Culinary school is looking good to her. And then there's that married...or is he separated? chef at the restaurant where she works. But she can't tell her family she doesn't want to go to med school.

I enjoyed this book a lot. It moved at fast pace, and Whitney Gaskell did a good job of developing full characters that the reader can care about. The girls felt real, and each one had a sharp, quirky voice. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about sisters, their love lives and career dilemmas.

Format: Paperback
This is a book about three sisters Paige (first born), Sophie (middle child), and Mickey (the baby). This story follows each character through some of life's ups and downs... a 'cheating' husband, a divorcee getting back in the dating game, and a student finding love only to get her heart ripped out. I like the way it was written, split into three parts so we get to know each character as a person instead of this being one sister's points of view.

If you enjoyed her previous books, or love chick lit, you'll enjoy reading this book too.

I just read Mommy Tracked and I loved it so much that I wanted to read this one and it was wonderful as well. The sisters are very interesting and there's a seriousness and uniqueness (is that a word?) to Gaskell's "chick lit" that stands out from the rest. It's a refreshing read and I had a really hard time putting it down. Sophie's character was funny. I was laughing out loud at some of her thoughts. Now I can't wait to read her other books!

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on September 28, 2005
Format: Paperback
The oldest of the three Cassell sisters thirty-four years old Paige is amiably divorced from her spouse Scott when he one day announced he was coming out of the closet; she buries herself in her legal work vowing no more men. The middle sibling pregnant thirty two years old Sophie remodels her kitchen without the knowledge of her husband Aldan who is away on business. The youngest twenty two years old Mickey has given up Brown University Medical School to be with her married lover, Chef Oliver.

While Sophie struggles with raging hormones, the carpenter she hired Zack is interested in dating Paige, who changes her mind about her male taboo. Complicating their relationship is that Sophie insists he is her carpenter, her parents, who angrily divorced years ago, are making morning coffee together, and Mickey seems destined for a broken heart.

SHE, MYSELF, & I is an intriguing character study that concentrates predominately on the oldest sister, but also provides strong looks at the younger siblings. Paige and Mickey are fine protagonists, but the zany pregnant Sophie steals the show with her decision making and declarations that drive everyone crazy. Whitney Gaskell writes a lighthearted romp that showcases sisterly love and support amidst all types of tribulations.

Format: Paperback
Three sisters - Paige, Sophie, and Mickey - share the lead in this character-driven book. Each sister has a `section' within the book, where the story is told from her perspective. So, you end up with 3 different perspectives on the same story. The story here is about the women - the changes they are going through in their romantic, work, and family lives. Although each of them have different challenges - mostly of a romantic nature - they have one major thing in common - a strong bond with one another. Plus, their divorced mother and father and planning to remarry after going through a terrible divorce. A lot of the story is about forgiveness, as Sophie and Paige must both face some hard truths about the men in their lives. The story was fun, and a breeze to read through, but I was a little put-off by all of the baby references and pregnancy talk. I came away from the story liking Paige and her character/life the best, and I'm sure for everyone who reads this they can identify with one of the sisters.

Format: Paperback
This book is divided into thirds so that Paige, Sophie, and Mickey Cassel, get to tell you their own stories. Paige is a successful divorce attorney who recently got divorced herself. She is determined to start dating again. Paige tries to be a one night stand type of person but finds she cannot do that. Sophie is driven crazy by her hormones during her pregnancy and after their baby Ben is born. Aidan, her husband does his best to cope. Everyone thinks brainy little sister Mickey is going to medical school; but she has other plans. In addition to their hectic lives; their divorced parents are getting married. A well-written novel that keeps you enchanted until the very last page.
