Some Like It Haute
Some Like It Haute

SavvyMiss.com, August 11, 2006

"Meet Alexandra Simons, the heroine of Julie K. L. Dam?s debut novel, 'Some Like It Haute.' Alexandra?or Alex, as only her closest fashionista friends call her?is the best sort of chick-lit heroine, the type who makes a valiant and satisfying attempt at trying to have it all, only to mess up quite a bit along the way.... 'Some Like It Haute' is an entertaining summer read that will appeal to your sense of self, your sense of independence and, most importantly, your sense of style." - SavvyMiss.com

Self-Made Man: One Woman's Journey Into Manhood and Back Again by Norah Vincent
Self-Made Man: One Woman's Journey Into Manhood and Back Again

SavvyMiss.com, August 11, 2006

"Who expects a person?man or woman?to be someone other than his or herself? The struggle to be someone she is not is as central to the groundbreaking 'Self-Made Man' as Vincent?s initial goal: To discover what it is like to be a man in a man?s world and, in the process, to uncover the difference between men and women...'Self-Made Man' ultimately makes you happier than ever to be a woman. With that newfound appreciation comes a better understanding of why men are the way they are. But never will we ever truly understand, as Vincent suggests, what it?s like to be a man because we never can truly be one." - SavvyMiss.com

The Girls by Lori Lansens
The Girls

SavvyMiss.com, August 11, 2006

"Where Lori Lansens truly succeeds is in her voicing of two very distinct women in 'The Girls.' She has so successfully created two separate characters who have lived separate lives in so many ways, that the fact that they are eternally locked together is a continuous surprise. And yet, imagining one of the girls without the other is unthinkable. In Lansens? world, there is always Rose and Ruby together, and none of us would have it any other way." - SavvyMiss.com

Burned Alive: A Victim of the Law of Men by Souad
Burned Alive: A Victim of the Law of Men

SavvyMiss.com, August 11, 2006

"The simple language of 'Burned Alive' lays bare the tragic tale of Souad?s life and the lives of women like her... 'Burned Alive' is ultimately a powerful testament to the resilience of the human spirit and a worthy addition to your list of must-reads." - SavvyMiss.com
