Crumbs aren't Enough tells the story of a young woman, Charlie, and her self-esteem issues around men. We follow her professional career in DC and Ohio, her journey through therapy, and her growth in the "find a man" department.

This book is written like a monologue-- imagine yourself sitting down on a comfy couch with your best girlfriend and a glass of wine. And then your friend tells you everything that's happened to her in the past five years. The author uses a lot of phrases like "you remember when," "let me tell you," and "you see."

All that familiarity brings a reader in... But it was off-putting at the beginning, hence the 3.5 stars. I wanted to say Whoa, I barely know you, slow down a bit!

By the end, I was crying with my new best friend, and rejoicing with her too!

This was fun chick-lit with some serious words about self-esteem issues. I enjoyed it.

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
