"A modern-day Jane Austen."
"What kind of self-described 'nice girl' would sleep with her best
friend's fiancé? One who's seriously flawed, like this delightful
debut novel's heroine, but also surprisingly winning and real."
"This page-turning, heartbreakingly honest
debut…deftly depicts the hopeful hearts behind an unsympathetic
situation." -Entertainment Weekly
"Both hilarious and thoughtfully written, resisting the
frequent tendency of first-time novelists to make their characters
and situations a little too black-and-white. You may never think of
friendships - their duties, the oblique dances of power and their
give-and-take - quite the same way again." -Seattle
"A thrill to read." -Washington Post
"Sharply observed and beautifully etched." -Newark
"Dead-on dialogue, real-life complexity and genuine warmth."
"Forget 'Bergdorf Blondes.' The [book] you want in your bag this
year is Emily Giffin's SOMETHING BORROWED. It's
smarter, less arch and more believable. The characters are
authentic. Best of all, SOMETHING BORROWED captures what it's
like to be 30 and single in the city, when your life pretty much
revolves around friendships and love and their attendant
complexities." -San Francisco Chronicle
