In this novel the characters are smart, funny and sensitive. The dialogues between the women—Sibble, Ray Jean, Cleo and Misty—are fast-paced and honest. Through their friendship they are able to help each other deal with issues of infidelity, abuse and betrayal. You'll find yourself responding to the conversations as if you were there. Just like you would expect friends to do, they poke fun at one another and give each other a hard time once in a while, but the message that's clear throughout is, "when the going gets tough, you can count on us."
