My Take on the Book:
I couldn't help but give this book an awesome five star rating - from the first page I loved Sara Sharma - her humor and wittiness are out of this world! This novella changes between Sara's point of view and George Wright's. I got a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Last Word:
This is the second book that I've read by this author - and I loved it; so I'm looking forward to more of her writing in the future!
