This list is a far from complete list of some of my favorites - they are warriors, scholars, mothers, daughters; they can be wildly in love and impressively practical; they are a little too perfect and incredibly flawed. Most of them have happy endings, some of them don't. In an nutshell - these are girls who act like girls should and must.
We had dinner out after reading this book and had some great laughs. I was over both of them by the time I finished the book and would not bother reading any if the sequels. Some of the group have read all the books though.
