I received a copy of When Girlfriends Step Up by Savannah Page in exchange for an honest review.

When Girlfriends Step Up follows the tale of Robin Sinclair, a determined young lady embarking on a small publishing house in Seattle. Unlucky in love in the past, she is optimistic about her luck in the future and hopes to one day meet Mr. Right. But, so far he hasn't turned up and her year only seems to be getting worse when she finds out that she is pregnant. Uncertain of what will happen, she turns to her girlfriends and they really step up when things start to get tough for Robin. She slowly finds her footing in the realm of single motherhood and that is when she stumbles into an attractive co-worker named Bobby and sparks fly. Will she finally meet the one? And will things ever turn around for Robin?

I really enjoyed this book. Early on it seems as though Robin has all the odds stacked against her, but I absolutely loved watching her mature and grow into a strong, confident woman. This book shows real courage and strength from Robin and I loved her relationships with her closest gal pals. I think this book definitely touched on a lot of important topics and many which I have seen some of my own girlfriends struggle with. Overall, this book conveys a good message and I appreciated it because I don't see that happen often much these days. There were a few hiccups here and there but I would still give this book a high rating.

I rarely write negative reviews, but this book is so bad that I feel compelled to chime in. About the only good thing I can say about it is that there were only a few typos, grammatical errors and continuity gaffes (Rose's birthday party in the epilogue is said to celebrate one month) in the Kindle edition.

The story itself is facile fantasy. It reads like a fourteen year old's reinterpretation of a season of some reality show featuring teenage mothers, perhaps submitted as a creative writing assignment in high school freshman English. I kept wondering when and how the author would convince me to like the protagonist in spite of her betrayal of friendship, but it never happened. Throughout the story, Robin remained the same shallow, self-absorbed twit that she was on the night she conceived her child, and she wasn't even very good at it. I kept slogging through it to see what she would do with it in the end, but the story of redemption never materialized.

The prose is completely artless. The author evokes no emotional response to any of the characters or situations, not even the presumably heroic Bobby or the birth of Rose. While written in English, it somehow reads like a translation performed by a UN functionary, but with less charm.

This story is just one of a series, a little bit reminiscent of Sex and the City or Emily Giffin's novels. You know, the ones with a tight-knit group of girl friends, each one with her own distinct personality. This one revolves around a single mother hoping to provide a good life for her new baby, while searching for her own happiness too. It's a sweet story that you can't help but be drawn into. Next time you sit down with a good cup of tea/coffee, give this book a chance...and then get ready to carve out some time for the next releases in the series, too!

I enjoyed this book... It's fun and light-hearted. I enjoyed the first book in the when girlfriends series and thought that this one added a new and different perspective. I liked reading about Robin and the ups and downs of her pregnancy. Great book!

Format: Paperback
This book takes the friendships of five women, adds some complications and life altering decisions, and then asks the question "Do you have friends you can turn to when your life takes a major detour?" Are your friends really in it with you, through anything? Robin has to make the most important decision of her life when she finds out she is pregnant and alone. This is a time when you really need your girlfriends. Will they be there for her? Robin is a career woman who never thought she would be having a child at this point in life, especially alone. She must rely on the help of her friends to get her through this difficult time. Robin finds out what life can bring you when it changes your directions and even finds a man who might just be "her one". The author does an amazing job of describing the characters and the trials they face. I found myself wanting to be friends will all these girls by the end of this book.

I read through it waiting for the moment of reality that never came. In a culture where young girls seem to think having a baby would be a fun cool option, this book just feeds that fire. The author's immaturity was evident and in terms of style and to some extent topic, that is perfectly fine - I know there is an audience for that and kudos to a young writer for forging ahead with her career. But such offhand treatment of such major life issues made me very anxious.
