Where We Belong

Dec 13, Jennifer rated it really liked it Shelves: The teenaged daughter has a new boyfriend of her own, a poised and sunny prep school boy with whom it’s love at first sight and whose only flaw is his planned disappearance after graduation to college in the west.

I said all that to say this: I love Emily Giffin so much and this book was great!! That being said, Where I Belong was a rather contrived, simplisitic story.

Kirby and Marion get to wheree each other, slowly. I won this belng an ARC from Goodreads and was so excited to read it. Thanks for telling us about the problem. I’d seen emily giffin’s books are bestsellers. The changing perspective kept bellong me flip back to see who was talking, which got old on the iPad.

If you have to explain it and it will offend the people reading your book in an entire state, how about if you just say “loser” instead and leave it at that? I picked this up because it was one of the finalists for the GoodReads best of the year books.

Where We Belong was predictable, boring and completely unoriginal. If you’ve missed all the drama, check out Hiffin Ann’s website, who was in the middle of all of it: That’s not to say I don’t think that upper class people don’t deserve books about their lives and goffin, I do, it’s just that I saw Giffin’s talent and was hoping that someday she’d try her hand at writing a book with characters I could more easily relate to.

Her behaviour when Kirby turns up was bizarre. I look forward to reading more from her. When Kirby Rose, the child she gave up eighteen years ago, appears on her doorstep Marian is forced to re-examine her life, her family, and a past romance that threatens to overwhelm her.
