Although we are both only children from Pennsylvania, Cherylanne and I were awfully different as students. She graduated in just three years whereas I slept through almost as many classes as I attended. She cooked amazing, grown-up style meals; I threw together the same one-pot pasta on the nights when I couldn’t talk my roommates into ordering pizza.
But years later, here we are: still friends. I like and admire this smart, kind entrepreneur, wife and mother 100x more than I did back in college (and I already thought the world of her).
I loathe this book and yet I forced myself to finish. Do you do that too?
After I finally finished the book (and it felt like ages), I googled the title and the author to see what other people thought. I quickly got the sense that people who liked it didn’t look much past the apparently still-titillating notion of a relationship between two women. I say this because few people commented on the god-awful writing, and the huge holes in both plot and character.
An alumni web site delivered the news: an acquaintance from Cornell named BrendaJanowitz is now the author of several books including Recipe for a Happy Life and the upcoming New Adult novelThe Lonely Hearts Club from Polis Books.
