Interesting, light-hearted, and occasionally informative... this 'how-to' writing book essentially told me what I already knew, though it was nice to hear it directly from someone who'd 'been there, done that'. If anything, the book encouraged me to get out there and find a critique group for my work... and not to be ashamed to write Chick Lit, as it has blossomed into a perfectly legitimate book genre in the past 10-15 years or so. It's not going anywhere, so why NOT write for it? ( )

Ok, I bought this book and then two students from my Writing 12 class borrowed it before I could even read it. It's a fun take on a fun genre of writing--chick lit--that is currently enjoying a surge in popularity. If you love this genre, you'll find this book an easy read with helpful tips. ( )
