Great book. Rosemary is so funny and honest. There is at least one character in the book that you can relate to, which makes the book that much more enjoyable.

I absolutely loved it. I could connect to Rosemary so easily... she was so honest. Most books don't write about what's really going on inside the character's head, but Supplee manages to do so eloquently. Inspiring and motivating.
