From childhood nicknames like Pickled Egg and Gherkin to the fast paced 'self analysis' without Freud or even therapy, this book draws you into the life of Kate, and you 'get' it. Sure, we may not be jetting off to Vienna with our roomie for a weekend, or work in an advertising agency - but we all have a "static cling queen" in our office, and that one guy that you may fantasize about a fling with - Kate does. And emerges stronger and perhaps wiser, until the next time. And sometimes it does take more than once to realize what is under all the fripperies and masques we put on. And she does. Spectacularly.
Certainly worthy of being on any shelf for a quick 'pick me up', as well as a great read to just hide away for a few hours in.
Kate has difficulty in her personal life dealing with her ex-boyfriend. Kate's sister reminds her that he did not always treat her in the most positive way. He left her for another woman who gets the brunt of his negative characteristics. Kate also is unhappy at work dealing with her boss and some of her colleagues.
Kate makes some changes her life and starts to make improvements to her mental/physical health. These changes help her grow into a person she is meant to be, not the person she is.
I highly recommend taking the time to read. I hope to read a ze
I admit there are many books I don't finish because they have nothing that captures my attention. There was enough here (good concept, some terrific dialogue and descriptions of settings) to keep me reading to the end. With a little fine tuning, this could be outstanding. That being said, keep in mind that this is only an opinion. Your experience may well be quite different. I'm going to keep an eye out for other works by this author. I feel that there is strong potential for fantastic chick-lit type books later on, but she's not quite there yet.

If you enjoy Romantic comedies filled with every day confidence issues regarding appearance and finding love then add one to your basket.
I could visualise this being adapted to make a great film on a par with Nottingham Hill, Four Wedding and Love actually.
I have read some reviews stating some loose ends regarding a couple of characters but I like to use my imagination sometimes and this wasn't a problem for me.
So, if you think that happiness is only for the good looking and the rich then read Emma's book because it will make you smile.
Treat this book like a piece of cake. Hold it in your hand and enjoy every little bit.
General 'chick lit' stuff ... easy to read, with no concentration required.
