Okay. I wanted to include Berg in the summer reading guide, and of all her novels I read in preparation, this struck me as the most promising. I appreciated Berg’s portrait of small town life, her likable protagonist, and the significance of all kinds of friendships to the story. I especially liked that when the main character was in a bad way, it wasn’t a man who came to her rescue—it was her friends. But I didn’t find it gush-worthy, and since each category only has room for five books, I held out for the novels that did. That being said, many of you will love this, and I’m glad I read it.
