"[A] modern-day Jane Austen."--"Vanity Fair"

"Hilarious and thoughtfully written. You may never think of friendships--their duties, the oblique dances of power, and their give-and-take--quite the same way again."--"Seattle Times"

One who's seriously flawed, like this delightful debut novel's heroine, but also surprisingly winning and real." --Glamour"""This page-turning, heartbreakingly honest debut...deftly depicts the hopeful hearts behind an unsympathetic situation." --Entertainment Weekly "Both hilarious and thoughtfully written, resisting the frequent tendency of first-time novelists to make their characters and situations a little too black-and-white. You may never think of friendships - their duties, the oblique dances of power and their give-and-take - quite the same way again." --Seattle Times"A thrill to read." --Washington Post"Sharply observed and beautifully etched." --Newark Star-Ledger"Dead-on dialogue, real-life complexity and genuine warmth."

Review
“Delightful, winning, and real.” (Glamour)

“One of the hottest books of the summer . . . Giffin avoids what could have been a cliché-ridden tale by skillfully developing Rachel and her best friend Darcy into three-dimensional characters.” (Atlanta Journal Constitution)

“Something Borrowed is both hilarious and thoughtfully written, resisting the frequent tendency of first-time novelists to make their characters and situations a little too black-and-white. You may never think of friendships - their duties, the oblique dances of power and their give-and-take - quite the same way again.” (The Seattle Times)

“Giffin's compelling debut truly stands out. It is as much about the meaning and value of friendship as it is about love, and it takes some risky chances that pay off . . . It's a gamble to cast her heroine in a potentially unsympathetic light, but Giffin manages to create empathy for her likable characters without cheapening the complexity of their situation, making for a genuinely wining tale.” (Booklist)

From the Back Cover
'Here's a heroine you'll root for and a book you won't want to put dosn. I loved it.'
Lauren Weisberger, author of The Devil Wears Prada

Rachel Miller and Darcy Rhone have been best friends since childhood. They've shared birthdays, the horrors of high school and even boyfriends, but while Darcy breezes through life getting what she wants when she wants it, Rachel has always played by the rules and watched her stunning best friend steal all the limelight. The one thing Rachel's always had is the four-month head start on Darcy which meant she was first to drink, first to drive, first to everything - but now she's going to be first to thirty.

On the eve of her thirtieth birthday, Rachel finds herself questioning their friendship. How come Darcy gets a glamorous job at a PR firm and the perfect boyfriend, while Rachel grinds away as an attorney and remains painfully single? But when an accidental fling complicates everything, it's time for Rachel to make a few hard choices. And she's suddenly forced to learn that sometimes true love comes at a price ...

'A deftly written and convincing tale of friendship gone comically -- and at times poignantly -- awry.'
Meg Cabot, author of Princess Diaries
