Everyone is raving about Emily Giffin and "Something Borrowed"!
"Emily Giffin brings a fresh, new voice to women's fiction. "Something Borrowed" is a deftly written and convincing tale of a friendship gone comically---and at times poignantly---awry."
- Meg Cabot, author of "The Boy Next Door" and "The Princess Diaries"
""Something Borrowed" is a winner; it has rare emotional depth. In "Something Borrowed," Rachel, a perpetually self-sacrificing nice girl, shocks herself by launching an affair with her best friend's fiance. This first blow for freedom sets off a chain reaction that will inspire pathologically nice girls everywhere to strike blows of their own."
- Valerie Frankel, author of "The Accidental Virgin"
""Something Borrowed" by Emily Giffin is a luxurious page-turner of a debut novel that marks the arrival of a tremendously bright, clever new voice in women's fiction. In quick-moving, captivating prose punctuated with dead-on dialogue, Giffin deftly captures the complications and humor of love, betrayal, career, and friendship for a city girl at the edge of thirty; you forget this is just a novel and won't want to put it down."
- Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez, author of "The Dirty Girls Social Club" and "Playing with Boys"
"I absolutely loved it and read it in two sittings because I could not put it down. It was amazing to me how Emily handled this complex moral issue with such compassion and clear-sightedness. I believed it all the way and forgot about the rest of my life while I was immersed in it. Her three main characters are portrayed as multifaceted and endearingly flawed---just like real human beings. Something Borrowed is also very well written---nice, spare prose, which kept me pressing forward, agog to know what happened. This is a book which takes a clear-eyed look at the rivalry that exists in even the best of friendships. Congratulations to Emily on having written such a compelling, engrossing, and uplifting book."
- Marian Keyes, author of "Sushi for Beginners"
