I've honestly been nervous to write a review for this one, because it was so, so good. I just don't feel like I can do it justice. I loved every page. I loved every character. I loved learning more about fine dining and working in a restaurant in New York. I loved reading about the city. I loved Tess. And I'm fangirling really hard for the author (nearly fainted when she commented on my Instagram - like no, thank you for writing!). I'm just going to say it - this is my favorite book of the year. Maybe the last 5 years. And to all of you - if you haven't already, read it now.
Also, Stephanie, if you need an assistant, I'm your girl.
It's an epidemic with women your age. A gross disparity between the way that they speak and the quality of thoughts that they're having about the world. They are taught to express themselves in slang, in clichés, sarcasm- all of which is weak language. The superficiality of the language colors the experiences, rendering them disposable instead of assimilated. And then to top it all, you call yourselves 'girls.'"
Why You Should Read It:
So beautifully written, you'll turn the last page and open it right back up to the beginning.
