I added this to my "to read" list when this first came out and I saw what a fit the Junior Leagues of American were throwing about its contents. Never having been in a Junior League in Texas but with friends that were, I was curious. This was fun, easy, "escape" reading. I actually started it twice because when I first began, it just seemed too lightweight for me to care. The obviously not-from-Texas accent was initially very distracting for me since I am a Texan and NO ONE native to this state speaks this way. The narrator has a consistent southern accent and does a wonderful job with the different voices and once I got past her lack of a Texas accent, I enjoyed her reading. No one choosing this is expecting deep, meaningful literature, but for those looking for a light, distracting summer read, this fits the bill.

This is a great book. My husband is a non-fiction reader and hates chick lit, but he listened to this with me on a recent trip and he also enjoyed it. He laughed out loud quite a bit. This really is a good story. The book is written in the first person and the main character (the heroine) uses a lot of lists (First, second, etc) to present ideas or aspects of the story line. I thought the use of lists was very clever. The main character really grows on you. She is very proud of herself but it is not a turn off - it is really hilarious.
