Girls in White Dresses - Jennifer Close This is kind of like a Sex and the City for the recently graduated set: struggling with the idea that all of your girlfriends from college are getting married and having kids and embarking on their dream careers while you are still single and fetching muffins for people. Unlike the obnoxious, trite Carrie and company, these girls strike me as realistic and relatable. The characters aren't the most fleshed-out, but the prose is much more thought-out than most other fluffy reads. It's actually smarter and wittier than I was expecting. It's fun chick-lit that speaks to where I am in my life without being patronizing, and I very much appreciate that. I think a lot of twentysomething ladies will find something hear to relate to.
