Twenty-eight-year-old Maggie Fuller relies on her looks and size zero body to flirt her way through life while working dozens of dead-end jobs and dreaming of stardom. Her older, larger sister, Rose, relies on her intelligence and is an accomplished attorney at a large Philadelphia firm. The only things these two seem to have in common is their shared history, a loathing for their "stepmonster," Sydelle, size six feet and a passion for luxurious shoes.

Fabulous! I love the characters- they seem well-rounded so that you like and dislike them at the same time. Heartwarming and touching. A shining example of the Chick Lit genre- yes, it is a genre!
