Cindy Johnson offers advice for single women in their late twenties and early thirties through a series of letters and commentary based on experiences of her single friends. I suspect that I might have enjoyed the book a bit more if I had been twenty years younger. The title was catchy for me, and I really expected the book to be more of humorous look at singleness. Instead the book was more focused on dating experiences. The format just didn't work well for me, and to be honest, I am probably about twenty years over the anticipated target audience. It probably would work better for those in that generation. This review is based on an advance readers copy provided by the publisher through NetGalley for review purposes. ( )
