This collection of short stories, following the tender, and often hilarious, progress of love and relationships over the course of a lifetime. More would be better in this one.

I am usually a big fan of Jennifer Weiner's work, but I agree with the other posts. The short stories are incomplete and seem to end right in the middle of the plot. I had higher expectations and I was definitely disappointed!

Don't waste your time, didn't even read the whole thing. This is a bunch of short stories and they suck. The endings are all abrupt and really don't finish the story.

This is a great book to accompany you somewhere where you can't read for long periods of time. Each short story is unique, yet touches home somehow with the characters, situations, or humour. I often wished each story would continue more, I wanted to keep going! I read this book on my honeymoon, when I needed some down time.
