Good in Bed

Good in Bed
Jennifer Weiner
There’s chick-lit that is as formulaic as a Silhouette romance novel, and then, just when you think the whole genre is the Malibu Barbie of literature, along comes a book like Good in Bed.

In this novel (which was apparently the author’s first), protagonist Cannie Shapiro isn’t a lolly-pop headed stick-figure of a lead – instead, she’s overweight, underconfident, and totaly real – even to the way she deals with her divorced, and recently out of the closet, mother and her mother’s anti-social partner.

To describe the plot would be to ruin the story, but don’t let the superficial similarities to How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days fool you – it’s a great read.
