Fantastic, Fantastic, Fantastic!!!,
This review is from: The Best of Everything (Paperback)What a great book!!! I loved the girls, the time period, and even though I hate New York City...I loved it in this book! I also bought the movie, so as soon as I finished the book, I watched the 1958 movie version...also wonderful!
This book follows four girls through new jobs, new loves, lost loves, unwanted pregnancies, and death in 1953 New York. The pace of this book was excellent, and the characters were people you really come to care about. Seeing how there's so much to this book, I'm not even going to try to summarize it, but it was great!
I can't wait to get my hands on more of Ms. Jaffe's books! I've added all of them to my wish list and hope they'll be just as entertaining as this book was!

I'm so glad you enjoyed this book--it's also one of my all-time favorites! Love your line about hating New York City but loving it in this book! Very true of myself as well! I also enjoyed Mazes and Monsters--check out Wikipedia for the background on it--and I dearly love Class Reunion and After the Reunion! Enjoy!
