This book is hard to read, mainly due to the author's choppy "style" and wordy, long sentences. If you're interested in yet another Life and Times of A New York "Society" Wanna-be, then here's one more for the pile. I for one have no sympathy for moronic characters who have "mishaps" due to their own greed, ego and shallow lives.

The child's dairy was something I could have done without- way too obvious and contrived. I don't know of any 6-year old kids in the 2nd grade; I thought they were usually 7-8.

The sister is a real tramp, doing drugs and strange men right, left and center-- a role model for a child?

Claire seems to complain about everything, but yet, enjoys a lifestyle few (if any) single moms would enjoy-- free rent, private schooling, expensive activities.

I guess this whole "chick lit" genre and it's mommy-offshoots should have been put to rest long ago, because now we're just getting whatever Red Dress, Avon, Downtown Press, (et al) can crank out, with no real regard for quality stories, likeable characters or writing. This is an example of that.
