For Don, Joe, Zoë and Bonnie. This time I feel like I should thank her. I look away from Jill and try to focus back on Emma and her ongoing speech about expectations and proper behavior. I may have met up with him later, but.

For Don, Joe, Zoë and Bonnie. you know, I told him no first, Jill says, almost to herself. The truth is, I haven’t been seriously interested in any of the legion of men Jill’s tried to set me up with since Ryan dumped me. Of course, this doesn’t explain why I have entranced none of them

Mainly because I didn’t sleep. Between analyzing my little run-in with Sam at the hospital and watching John Henry sleep all night, it was a lost cause. Should I open the crate? Is it cruel to put him in that little crate? No, dogs like to feel like they’re in a den. But what if I set up a little bed on the couch? The bathroom floor? What about on my bed? In the end, John Henry slept in his crate, while I lay curled up in my sleeping bag next to him. Yes, it was a bit much.

Instead, it's much rawer, realer, and makes truly worthy statements about self-esteem and society.

More Like Her. Liza Palmer. What really goes on behind those perfect white picket fences? In Frances's mind, beautiful, successful, ecstatically married Emma Dunham is the height of female perfection. Frances, recently dumped with spectacular drama by her boyfriend, aspires to be just like Emma. The author of Conversations with a Fat Girl-optioned for HBO-returns with the hilarious and heartfelt story of a woman who must learn how to be the heroine of her own life-a journey that will teach her priceless lessons about love, friendship, family, work, and her own heart.

And when she meets her new boss, Frannie can't help but wish she was just a bit more like he. I am a big Liza Palmer fan and was excited to read this book. I enjoyed it and love her writing style as usual.

And when she meets her new boss, Frannie can't help but wish she was just a bit more like her. Because Emma has it all: the job, the lifestyle, the happy marriage. even the perfect dog. But everything is not as it seems. However, this is not a "feel good" novel and if you are only into "chick lit", I would give it a pass.

This story touches on the emotional aftermath of witnessing a school shooting. When speech therapist, Frannie Reid attends the birthday celebration of head mistress, Emma Dunham in the teacher's lounge at the private school in California where they work, Frannie witnesses the murder of Emma in the presence of the faculty and architects who are working on the school expansion. This traumatic experience affects everyone present and leads to emotional turmoil where nothing will ever be the same. There is a roller coaster ride of relationships, colorful characters, lasting friendships, witty dialogue, and wonderful musical references. The seriousness of bullying is touched on as well as the fragility of romantic relationships. It has sobering content on a serious issue and is well writtten. It is a must read.
I had a hard time getting into this book. It seemed very disconnected for me. The beginning is so light and all about girl talk and joking around, and then all of a sudden the shooting happens. It seemed like it was from 2 separate books for me.

I was annoyed by most of the characters. I was mostly annoyed by Frannie's thoughts and things she said. Could she have had any less self esteem if she tried??

The conversations in the book often seemed disjointed and hard to follow.

This book just wasn't my cup of tea.
The synopsis up on all the major retailers is totally wrong! When I first heard Liza Palmer had a new book coming out, I was stoked! Then the blurb was released and I thought, "Meh! But it's written by Liza Palmer, so I'm sure she'll do something interesting with this." And then I got the book...

The book is really, really good. It deals with what we perceive as perfection and the dark truths that can sometimes lie behind them, as well as the fall out after a traumatic event. The book kept me in tether hooks, and reeled me in from the first page of the prologue. This book has it all, action, drama, romance, even some comedy, as well as light and dark moments.

If you've never read a Liza Palmer book, I would strong suggest you change that as fast as you can!
I didn't know much about this book going in, and I was very surprised at the turn it took! I was expecting more of a "chick lit" sort of book but this had complexity and excitement that kept the plot varied and interesting throughout. Liza Palmer really has a way with developing not only the main character, but the supporting characters as well. I loved her book Nowhere But Home and I loved this one too! Give this book a chance!
It's a totally different read than I was expecting. Cute and lighthearted it's not. If I had known about what book was really about, I never would have bought it...that said, I couldn't be more pleased I read it. I was totally involved with characters and story and was caught off guard by events in the book. I cried a lot, especially toward the end. Caution: the book reminded me of recent events of Newtown, ct, but no children are hurt. Emotionally, it was too soon for me to read about a school tragedy but since I didn't know before I read, I read anyway and then couldn't put the book down. It's a great read but initially intentionally misleading.
I chose this book for my book club based on the decent reviews and it being mentioned on several blogs as a suggested read for book clubs. 4 out of 4 women thought it missed the mark considerably. It's too bad really, because there was a good story to be told there, but the story & characters lacked depth and development of any significant kind. The book was terribly predictable, and the ending was disjointed and abrupt. The nicest thing we could say about it was that it was "just okay". Really wish I hadn't wasted the Kindle book price for this. If you want to give More Like Her a shot, do it with a library check out, this disappointment will be less painful that way.
It was kind of a weird book. Serious stuff happened and had to be dealt with, but it had a light hearted feel to it as well. It won't be everyone's cup of tea.
The back cover information on this book is misleading. I bought this book because I have really enjoyed all of Liza Palmer's previous books. I wouldn't have picked up the book based on the back cover blurb. Did the person responsible for writing that blurb even read the book? The book is so much more then we are led to believe.
