We gave it an A-

Claudia and Ben are blissfully in love — and certain neither wants children. Ever.

Source of Angst
The birth of a friend’s baby leads Ben to a change of heart, which brings their marriage crashing down.

Weighty Issues
”The pants look and feel baggy, which is shocking because they’re a size six, and I’m usually an eight.”

Lowdown
Yes, there are Manolos and cocktails with neurotic girlfriends, but Giffin’s writing is true, smart, and heartfelt. And Claudia is both flawed and achingly real.
