9780099461463: Something Borrowed

Rachel Miller and Darcy Rhone have been best friends since childhood. They've shared birthdays, the horrors of high school and even boyfriends, but while Darcy is the sort of woman who breezes through life getting what she wants when she wants it, Rachel has always played by the rules and watched her stunning best friend steal all the limelight. The one thing Rachel's always had over Darcy is the four-month age gap which meant she was first to being a teenager, first to drive, first to everything - but now she's about to be first to thirty. And Darcy still has a charmed life. On the eve of her thirtieth birthday, Rachel is shocked to find herself questioning the status quo. How come Darcy gets a glamorous job at a PR firm and the perfect boyfriend, while Rachel grinds away at her despised job as an attorney and remains painfully single. Is it just luck? Or, looking back at their friendship and their lives together, is it a bit more complicated than that? Then an accidental fling complicates everything, and it's time for Rachel to make a few hard choices. And she's suddenly forced to learn that sometimes true love comes at a price ...

Review:

“Delightful, winning, and real.” (Glamour)

“One of the hottest books of the summer . . . Giffin avoids what could have been a cliché-ridden tale by skillfully developing Rachel and her best friend Darcy into three-dimensional characters.” (Atlanta Journal Constitution)

“Something Borrowed is both hilarious and thoughtfully written, resisting the frequent tendency of first-time novelists to make their characters and situations a little too black-and-white. You may never think of friendships - their duties, the oblique dances of power and their give-and-take - quite the same way again.” (The Seattle Times)

“Giffin's compelling debut truly stands out. It is as much about the meaning and value of friendship as it is about love, and it takes some risky chances that pay off . . . It's a gamble to cast her heroine in a potentially unsympathetic light, but Giffin manages to create empathy for her likable characters without cheapening the complexity of their situation, making for a genuinely wining tale.” (Booklist)

Review:

"I absolutely loved it...I could not put it down" ( Marian Keyes)

"A deftly written and convincing tale of friendship gone comically -- and at times poignantly -- awry." ( Meg Cabot)

"Here's a heroine you'll root for and a book you won't want to put down. I loved it!" ( Lauren Weisberger)
