Review:

"The third installment (the first to be published in the U.S.) in a British-originated series, this uneven anthology of stories by chick lit's bright lights showcases some engaging voices. Many of the selections, however, lack focus and shape, and while most begin energetically, more than a few fizzle before ending abruptly. Notable exceptions include 'Cat Lady' by Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez (The Dirty Girls Social Club), in which a woman trying to embrace her inner spinster ('Dear self: If you are still single and haven't had one good date in the preceding two years... [s]ave yourself a future of humiliation and too much makeup and realize one important truth: You are now a cat lady') finds unexpected romance. In 'New York' by Jill A. Davis (Girls' Poker Night), a woman recovering from a breakdown finds her niche and a second chance for success in magazine publishing. Premonitions by a psychic roommate in 'Know it All' by Sarah Mlynowski (Milkrun) help the story's narrator finally make a decision regarding her on-again off-again boyfriend. Some big names disappoint, including Jennifer Weiner (Good in Bed) and Anna Maxted (Running in Heels). The anthology supports an excellent cause — a percentage of the proceeds go to the humanitarian organization War Child — but it's not consistently gratifying as entertainment. Agent, Deborah Schneider. 160,000 first printing; national advertising. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Twenty-one of today's hottest young female writers contribute to this collection of stories about growing up, moving out, moving on, falling apart, and getting it all together. Proceeds benefit the War Child Charity in the UK. Authors include Jen Weiner, Meg Cabot, and Marian Keyes. Original.

This was overall just a fun and quick read. It has a whole bunch of short stories that suck you in but it's still easy enough to move onto the next when its over. I had a good time reading this book filled with such great authors.
