This is my first Jennifer Weiner read (I've seen the movie version of In Her Shoes which I liked). For a short read, I say well done, Ms. Weiner. In that short of a tale, I was able to get a good glimpse into each of the characters, even the side ones like Caitlyn. That bit about her in the end caught me off guard in a very nice way. The ending did feel a little abrupt but I still got that hopeful sense.
