Notes:
Frances is twenty-one years old, cool-headed and observant. A student in Dublin and an aspiring writer, at night she performs spoken word with her best friend Bobbi, who used to be her girlfriend. When they are interviewed and then befriended by Melissa, a well-known journalist who is married to Nick, an actor, they enter a world of beautiful houses, raucous dinner parties and holidays in Provence, beginning a complex mnage--quatre. But when Frances and Nick get unexpectedly closer, the sharply witty and emotion-averse Frances is forced to honestly confront her own vulnerabilities for the first time.

Reviews
Our group (average age 50+) had nothing good to say about this book, but did wonder whether iGen-ers might view the book differently. We had no empathy with any of the 4 main characters. Each was self-involved, with no sense of values, and none of them developed as the story progressed. The book could have been set anywhere, as there were no descriptions of either Dublin or France, which might have provided a redeeming feature for the book. Described by members as tedious, boring, drivel and a waste of time. We felt it might have worked better as a short story in a Women’s magazine. Average score of 2.5/10.
