The more I read chick lit, the more I realize how much I don't care for it. Sometimes it seems as though all the plots are the same, and all the narrators the same person. Of course, all that isn't the fault of this book. To be fair, it's a reasonably nice example of the genre. The characters are (for the most part) better fleshed out than your typical chick lit. The story line is fluffy, but it is at least somewhat believable. I liked the main character, and I appreciated that she seemed to grow during the course of the novel. The plot does read a bit like it came from a list of chick lit cliches (the "serious" journalist forced to work for a fluffy magazine for cash and experience... sound familiar?) It wasn't great literature, and there were some parts where I said "Oh come on" out loud, but it did have a sweet (if somewhat unbelievable) ending. Recommended to anyone looking for an easy read.
