BACK IN THE GAME

Author(s): 
Jess, Grace, Nell and Nell's sister, Laura, are four friends who have each been divorced and are now trying to move forward with their lives. The chapters follow each woman on her quest for romance, love, children and fulfillment. Along the way are plenty of surprises as they all realize that life after divorce is a lot easier with a little friendly help.

While the premise of this book is interesting, this book is not an engaging read. The four female protagonists are little more than cliches, and it is therefore very difficult for the reader to sympathize with them and get involved in their stories. Additionally, the men in the story, for the most part, are portrayed as mooches, sports fanatics or saints -- stereotypes that also detract from the story. (Jul., 340 pp., $12.95)
