Selected by Indie Booksellers for the August 2011 Indie Next List
“This book is smart, hilarious, and sincere, a combination both rare and, here, perfectly balanced. The series of interconnected short stories features Isabelle, her family, and her group of close friends as Isabelle grows up and moves from being a reluctant member of her older sister's wedding party to attending numerous friends' weddings. But this is not just a book about getting married. It is a book about growing up, being a girl, being both a friend and a girlfriend, and trying to find one's place in the world. It is also incredibly funny - laugh out loud, run into the next room to read sections to whomever will listen, spot-on funny! This lovey book should not only be shared among mothers, daughters, and friends, but be passed on to brothers, boyfriends, and dads too!”
-- Sarah Baline, Politics & Prose Books &, Washington, DC
