This is not my kind of book. Ever since Thelma and Louise, I avoid reading anything that might resemble best friends dealing with the strangeness of life. I always thought chick lit books were too girly, too emotional, too bound up to ever be worth a read.
And then I read the Break Up Mix. This, ladies and gentlemen, is a phenomenal book.
Somewhere in the middle of Michelle, Chance, Dani and Alissa I got caught up and strengthened. How often does a book change the way you view your friendships? That's what this did for me, in so many ways. A bit of every character's dilemmas has resided in my heart at least once. By the mid-book, I was completely entranced waiting for Tony, worried about Michelle, wondering about Chance, ready to send a card to Alissa. It may seem like too many characters, all women, all of an age, but this book made me cry for several different reasons. I want the CD, I want the Sunrise Mix, I want to have friends that take on the world just for me, even when I am lost. Freakin YES!!!!
