Good-girl New York attorney Rachel has her world turned upside down when, at the end of a drunken 30th birthday bash, she sleeps with her college friend Dex--who is also her best-friend's fiancé. She's shocked at what she's done, and even more shocked when her feelings for Dex continue to grow. Emily Giffin's debut novel became a bestselling splash on its release in 2005, and marked Giffin as one of the standout stars in the overcrowded chick-lit genre. What sets SOMETHING BORROWED above the rest is Giffin's pitch-perfect blend of high melodrama with wonderfully three-dimensional characters, and complicated, morally-tricky solutions to crises of the heart.
