Spring Break gave me the chance to read "GCB" (Good Christian Bitches) by Kim Gatlin
I really really liked the book a lot! :)
I was going into it thinking it wouldn't be that good of a novel but everything that was stated in the book was so dead on! The catty behavior/gossip that even adult women still get wrapped up in. Oy. Boggled my mind!
The book and show are simliar, but many things make them different. For one thing, the ages of the children in the book are much younger than on the show. In the book Amanda and her mother rekindle their relationship which I really liked too.
Reviews have been all over the place for this book, mainly the negative ones are of course from the people that have taken "offense" to this author and the things she wrote.
I'd say pick yourself up a copy up of the book if you can find it on the shelves!
