The Weird Sisters - Eleanor Brown 


I loved the use of the first person plural narrator. You don't see that very often, but in this case it fit the story perfectly. I enjoyed hearing the story told by the sisters as one entity. The authors use of quotes from Shakespeare peppered through the dialogue was a bit heavy-handed in the beginning, but just as it started to annoy me, it tapered off and I didn't mind them so much toward the end. All around, this was a unique twist on the typical "chick lit" and was a very enjoyable read.
