This was an entertaining read and the characters felt pretty true to life, especially the way that Ginny deals with her life and the reasons that she and her boyfriend break up. The relationship of Ginny and her friends was a nice one and it was rewarding to see Ginny get her life together. My only complaint was the amount of cursing.

Normally, I wouldn't complain about a free book because free is like a gift.

But, I couldn't even finish this novel. What could have been a cute, fun read was sunk by the main character's insistent whining. I understand she was in a rough place, but dear Pete, halfway through and she's still going on and on. I felt like there was little character development and what there was wasn't pretty. It was hard to sympathize with her because while her situation wasn't ideal, it certainly wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been as her roommates offered to help support the baby.

Well, not really. Maybe a baby falls under the "that which doesn't kill us..." cliche. In this case, the arrival of an unplanned baby forces our heroine to stop defining herself by her boyfriend and find her own self.

Take one very immature 22 year old, add 2 lifelong best buds/roommates, subtract one ex boyfriend and mix it all with an unplanned pregnancy and you've got this book. That all bring said, this book does deal with the pregnancy angle in a pretty realistic way---the denial, the tears, the total holy sh** fears. But of course Ginnie has her 2 best buds to help carry her in a bit less realistic manner---its fun at first, kids, but what happens when we all want to get on with our lives?

A couple of interesting twists made this pretty enjoyable. It was not a "can't put it down" novel, but it made for a fun diversion.

This book is absolutely cute and adorable and not just because there is a baby in it. A classic humorous chick lit story with heart break and best friends to see you through. An easy read that left me with a smile.

I've read too many chick-lit books that have a focus on romance to the point of being silly. In fact, I've stayed away from this genre for quite a while because I couldn't stand the cheese factor anymore. The premise of this book intrigued me, so I decided to give chick-lit another try.

This book definitely has a romantic element, but the connection between the three friends really shines through. Supportive girlfriends can make anything better, especially an unplanned pregnancy. There was no cattiness, just loving support and humor. Everyone should have friends like Jen and Annie.

The changes Gin goes through during her pregnancy are realistic and relatable. As a new mom, some of the pregnancy references made me feel nostalgic.

It's an extremely impressive debut novel. I can't wait to see what Schurig does next.

Nice chick lit story of a young woman going through a life changing event. While I loved the strong attachment between the three girls, my complaint is with the pining over the 'lost love'. I am sure I did my share of longing and pining for a man when I was in my 20's, but I wanted to shake Ginny and tell her there is so much more out there and she should embrace her own strength. I also felt that she slighted her friends by never really seeing how they supported and loved her. It was a good book and I would recommend it to chick lit lovers.

This is a wonderful book by a first time writer. This would be the perfect book to read at the beach or when your stuck in on a rainy day. I simply could not put it down, it is the ultimate chick book. It was nice to have a book set in metro Detroit that wasn't about a serial killer or a gang. I recommend this book to every lady out there!!!

I wanted to write a bad review after going thru 10% of the book. But because of all the great reviews I persisted and continued to read to half way thru. still was not getting any better. I would have rated this book a one star at this point. I found no connection between the girls and the main character to be pathetic and a real loser. I guess thats what the author wanted to convey but it took way too long to get to this point. The second half got better but not enough to redeem this book.

The cover is so colorful and well drawn that it looks like it will be a fun story. In fact the cover is the reason I couldn't wait to read this one.

The author lives in the metro-Detroit area, and the story takes place there. It was great to see all the references to Royal Oak and Ferndale. Places I've at least heard of and been to before.

The descriptions and dialogue were all top notch. The characters are so well developed, you just love the three girls, Ginny is the central character here. She rooms with her best friends Jen and Annie. Jen is very organized and a great cook. Annie is more wild and an actress. Ginny is unsure of the direction of her life, working as a Nanny when she discovers she is pregnant. Having broken up with Josh, the boyfriend, she is terrified.

The way the author goes into Ginny's feelings really puts you there. Your stomach clenches with the humiliation at what she had done. With the fear of losing her job, the joy at finding her dream job. Ginny really grows in the year of this story. Through her pregnancy, which at times seemed unreal, and after giving birth to Danny and learning to be a mom. And she's a great mom.

I was tensed up when the doctors asked if she wanted a circumcision for Danny and I heaved a heavy sigh of relief when she consulted her friends and finally refused it. I'm just personally against it, and refused it for both the boys.

It's a great story and I can't wait to read the next installment Three Girls and a Wedding, which is told from Jen's perspective. And that makes me think there will be one from Annie's as well. YEAH! I hope Rachel Schurig will let me review them as well.

I was really disappointed in Ginny.
I thought she had grown as a person. Guess not. She keeps choosing wrong men.
The fact Ginny is going Back to old habits and depending on someone else's perception of who she is made me want to yell at the kindle.
I wanted her to realize that he was holding her back.
Now that she has changed she is apparently good enough for him again.
Made me wonder how long that will last...until he decides she Isn't what he wants and she tries to pretend to be what he wants. Ginny needs a therapist.
I won't be reading the next book in the series. That's for sure.
