I Kissed A Frog

Definitely what the title claims it to be.... Presenting I Kissed A Frog & other stories by Rupa Gulab.

Here is the summary of the book:

Girls aren’t really made of sugar and spice and everything nice. Well, perhaps some girls are, but those are certainly not the girls you’ll meet in 'I Kissed a Frog' – a collection of wacky short stories, tongue-in-cheek diaries and not so grim twenty-first century fairy tales that turn love and friendship inside out and upside down. You’ll find it all here: getting even with exes, changes in male-female dynamics, crazy diet wars, besties turning into worsties, dark humour, light comedy and the startling discovery that Prince Charming may not be your pitcher of beer. Young, fun and feminist, 'I Kissed a Frog' is just what a girl needs to chase the blues away.

I'm no fan of chic-lit....I a a chic yes but this genre never really interested me but man this was good. 'Sugar and spice and everything nice'....totally not the case with these girls. Strong feminism. Strong dislike of the norm. These are modernist girls, they are no damsels in distress and know how to make themselves known and heard.

Jealousy, revenge, first love gone wrong, diet wars, snagging the guys from the rival in the office and then bragging about it. Rupa Gulab has presented is a treasure trove of hilarious, exciting and strongly feminist short stories....... A collection of short and interesting tales by a woman and for the women!!! *wink* *wink*
