A Pleasant Surprise from Emily Giffin
"Where We Belong" is not literary in nature - I'd still consider it a light and fast read. But it still feels just a little different, and a little reminiscent of author Melissa Bank. I'm happy to say that I didn't visualize the book as a typical romantic comedy, starring Katherine Heigl and Vanessa Hudgens as mother and daughter, respectively. Rather, I saw a real story with real characters and good acting, maybe say, by Charlize Theron and Ellen Page. If you've ever been turned off by Giffin before, now's the time to give her another chance.
