At first, I thought this would be another chick-lit book, an easy sumer read. That is not the case. The novel follows 4 Smith College students, from their first day at college, through graduaion, and into their adult lives. At times, I found the movement between character stories to be a little confusing, but the author tackles some pretty heavy concepts in these women's stories.

Great book - the story of 4 college friends who spend their time figuring out who they are while dealing with current issues of feminism. I loved how each chapter was written from the point of view of a different one of the women.

Fantastic read - this novel follows the story of 4 young women and their relationships through very 'formative' years of their lives. Filled with fantastic feminist sentiments, it is a wonderful 'today' read.
