What Readers Have Said about BreakupBabe...
I haven’t even finished yet…but still wanted to thank you. I can’t tell you how MUCH I appreciate an engaging summer book that’s WELL-WRITTEN! And more than being well-written, I love the realness of the characters and situations and to be selfish – the humanity it gives me. Not that my life is anywhere near as exciting as Rachel’s but her honesty – makes me feel like I’m not the ‘only one.’ And I love that’s it’s funny too.
Colleen Sullivan

I just wanted to write and tell you that I just finished reading your book and I LOVED IT!!! It was hilarious!!! I felt very comforted that I’m not the only one with a totally screwed up love life. Thanks for the free “therapy”!!!
–Jennifer LeGrow

What a GREAT joy to read!
–Myra Finkelstein

I loved your book! I started it last night and stayed up as late as I could reading it so that I could see how it ended. When I didn’t finish it last night I got up this morning, skipped the gym and was 45 minutes late to work so that I could finish it. It was a very entertaining read – thanks!
–Michelle

OK so I was up wayyyy too late reading Breakup babe and I LOVE IT!!! Of course, with my recent Great Unpleasantness, I can totally relate.
–Amy

Love love love the book! I bought it on a whim and I have never been able to put it down since. Can’t wait to read your next one :)
