All You Could Ask For: A Novel

All You Could Ask For - Mike Greenberg Published on drey's library: http://www.dreyslibrary.com/2013/04/16/tlc-book-tour-all-you-could-ask-for-by-mike-greenberg/All You Could Ask For is a warm-fuzzies-inducing chick-lit read about the power of friendship. Brooke, Samantha, and Katherine are all strong women whom we meet at different stages of life: Brooke is married with children and enjoying life as a suburban mom, Samantha has just gotten married after a whirlwind romance, and Katherine is on top of her world – Wall Street.But life isn’t all shiny and pretty and rosy. All three have hurdles to overcome – see the blurb above for examples – and then some. But the latest hurdle does come with one benefit – each other. Even if it takes a while to meet (the first part of the book is about each individual), and it takes a bit to get used to each other, eventually these three find that they’re part of an exclusive group – girlfriends who know that they can count on the other for anything, even advice they don’t want to hear. Which, really, is what BFFs are for, right?Mike Greenberg captured my attention instantly with the first line – “Whose ass is this?” – and made me laugh and cry as the three live and love, and find friendship and acceptance. This is SO a book club read! Or one to sit down with, just because. And when you’re done, you’ll pick up the phone and call your BFF(s).drey’s rating: Excellent!
