I recently read "The Atlas of Love" by Laurie Frankel.
While I would call the genre of this novel "chick lit", Frankel's writing is really, really good. The book read like a friend is telling you her story. The premise for the book is that a graduate student becomes pregnant and she and her two closest friends decide to raise the baby together and share the work. It is sweet, funny and smart. It is not upsetting. It is not confusing. It is just what a busy girl needs in a novel at this time of year. I read it in two days.
I loved it so much, that I emailed the author to tell her so. (I never do this but will doing it more often). Guess what? She wrote back!
If you want a well written, easy read, I would highly recommend this one.
