A good read. Explores the consequences of an unplanned pregnancy and the inevitable conflict between a group of young people with part-time commitments to the child and the society sanctioned rights of biological parents. A bit predictable.

I love the authors style of writing.

An interesting take on what makes a family and what makes you a parent. I found the last half of the book was harder to get through because there are a lot of analogies and descriptions of her class work and frankly, I have no interest in the theories behind the analysis of literature, and some of them felt plodding. It also made it harder to connect because it kept pulling you out of the emotion and slowing down the plot.

great story, excellent storytelling. :) initially, i didn't think the subject would interest me enough to reach the end. but i was sucked in by the narrator and finished the book in no time.

What is family, really? What binds us together, and why? Frankel's novel explores this topic with humor, emotion and deep insight. When Katie and Janey's friend Jill becomes pregnant, the three friends move in together to raise the baby -- and juggle grad school, work, relationships, their own families, and one sweet baby boy. I loved every page!
