Listener Opinions

    " Who can't love a group of latino girls and reading about their day to day problems. Great read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tasha S | 2/10/2014

    " This book is about six friends, that despite all of their differences (and trust me they are very different) maintain their friendship. The book shows the struggle they face in their lives dealing with everything from their love lives to their professional careers all on top of being Latinas in America! While there are some issues that I could relate to I just couldn't jump right into it. It was an ok and I would recommend this to friends but only if I felt that it fit them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Book Concierge | 1/29/2014

    " A Latina "Waiting to Exhale." I enjoyed the book and the author shows promise. I think it may have been better with one fewer character, so that the author could expound more on the remaining women's problems. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alison | 1/23/2014

    " It was and okay read, but it was SLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOWWWWWW "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Missyk | 1/20/2014

    " I loved how each of the sucias has such a distinct voice - I am always amazed at that kind of writing, and I have to wonder if it requires multiple personality issues. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fatima | 1/15/2014

    " Great beach/summer read- This is a book about the beauty of real friendship between very different women. This is not great literature, nor is it intended to be. Alisa is the Plum Sykes/Sophie Kinsella of the Latin community. The characters are stereotypical and are meant to be- it makes it easy to identify with/ understand and or appreciate the girls. If you are a fun-loving woman- you can appreciate this book. If you are a Hispanic/Latina woman- you must read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Leon | 1/8/2014

    " Very funny and hooked me on this author too! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathe Bacon | 12/30/2013

    " This book is horrible!!!! It's poorly written, uninteresting, and just plain stupid. I couldn't even finish the first chapter grrrrr "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristy Renee Martinez | 11/30/2013

    " Alright, after whining and complaining, I have to admit I did come to care about most of the characters and wanted to know how their stories would pan out. Overall a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krystal Crespo | 11/13/2013

    " A cross between Desperate housewives and Sex and the city for Latina readers. Loved this one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betty | 11/2/2013

    " It was a cute read. I love her books, but this does not beat the dirty girls social club. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia | 11/1/2013

    " Meet Sex and the City with a Hispanic twist. Very amusing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 10/28/2013

    " Thank you my dear Susie for introducing me to this wonderful book. I had so many laughs, that now after reading the Twilight Saga, I may need something light-hearted to put me in a better mood. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 H3yd00 | 8/17/2013

    " Another book I never would have picked up if it wasn't in the free section. I laughed through the entire book. It's about a group of 20-something Hispanic women, and their different views and ways of life in the U.S. Very good read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Leah | 8/9/2013

    " If I could give this book less than a star, I would. It's terrible. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sheila | 6/3/2013

    " i could picture members of my own extended family...perhaps that's why i didn't like it. someone else's cup of tea--not for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen Bernard | 4/22/2013

    " Good window into the latino community here in America "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yvettee | 12/27/2012

    " This is a great book. I loved the story...it reminded me of Sex and the City but for Latinas. This book might become a movie, Jennifer Lopez bought the rights to it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca Aho | 3/14/2012

    " A group of Latina college buddies stay in touch with regular get togethers even the the only thing they really have in common is some Hispanic blood connection. No one is what they seem would be my estimation of the common thread in the lives of these women. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffy | 2/29/2012

    " This book is mixed with women from all types of backround with one problem *mostly*....the people in their lives who they love. In this book you will see these woman come together and rely on each other in a way they never imagined they could. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lizeth | 12/28/2011

    " def a latina girl must read...funny and just good to read.. fiction "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosanne | 11/5/2011

    " It is a little slow at first, but just like Sex in the City, I found my favorite girls. It was just okay for me. I really did not like the main character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beatriz | 6/14/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/4/2011

    " I think I was too young for this book when I read it. It was a little too grown up for me. It was ok. I think I would get more out of it now that I have matured a little "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 2/3/2011

    " While the book does not aspire to any deep or aiding look at the struggles of Latina women in the US, it also does not shy away from these topics. Don't be put off by the cover, while a fast paced read, this is a book which has its serious poignant moments. "
