. . . these characters are so well-drawn you could swear you’ve been friends with them for years. This book brims with insights about families, academia, romance, expectation, desire, disappointment, and all manners of life crisis. I couldn’t put it down.

What a smart, sophisticated novel! Most novels these days seem to have either a great plot or wonderful, well-developed characters.
