I'm still thinking the issue is more with the men

No Good Girls
by Jean Marie Pierson

This book totally wants to jump on the whole SATC bandwagon. It follows four friends in NYC, trying to make their careers and love lives work out, etc. And it's written in the first person. By a writer.

Of course, this narrator/heroine also has an imaginary friend, with whom she holds regular conversations. (SPOILER: she chose a random model to be the body of her imaginary friend in her head, but then she starts running into the actual model on the streets and talking to him like she knows him, which totally messes with his head, until she makes out with him on the subway and then he starts searching for her via personal ads - bizarre)

Nothing particularly new and exciting going on here, a nice bit of fluff. I can't imagine not realizing that my imaginary friend suddenly wasn't imaginary.

Wait. She talks to her imaginary friend, MEETS her imaginary friend, makes out with her imaginary friend, and proceeds to get stalked by her imaginary friend, all without ever realizing he's not actually imaginary, and you still think the problem is with the men?

Ok, so maybe I'm kindof bitter these days. It happens.

Plus there's another guy in the book who's a total jerk to her; I just wasn't in the mood to add him to the review/summary.
