The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing: Melissa Bank
Topic: Short-stories, chick-lit, relationships, humour
Comments: This is one of the few books where I've found myself emotionally identifying with the protagonist. Jane is an intelligent, funny, caring, self-aware woman who is completely clueless when it comes to most relationships. The short stories span her life from the age of 14 to 28 as both a participant and observer of all kinds of relationships - romantic, family and in the workplace. Both heart rendering and funny, I can't imagine a woman this book wouldn't appeal to.
