Review -- The Frog Prince

The Frog Prince
by Jane Porter
Grand Central Publishing, 2005
384 pages

Summary: Holly Bishop is newly divorced and has recently moved to San Francisco. She has a great job as an events planner but no social life to speak of. As the year continues on, she works on being happy with herself in order to find the happy ending she has always wanted.

Review: A quick, light read, I would recommend The Frog Prince to anyone who enjoys chick-lit. Holly is a great character once she gets over her self - esteem issues (and stops rambling on about fairy tales) and really starts to live for herself. I had a hard time understanding Holly's relationship with her mother and didn't really comprehend the motives of her ex-husband in seeking a divorce. I did enjoy the overall empowerment theme of creating your own happy ending. Great supporting characters and lots of funny scenes (especially the dating!) make The Frog Prince a fun read. Rating: *** out of 5.
