Both witty and heartbreaking, Girls in White Dresses follows a group of friends in their 20s as they navigate love, careers, family, and hangovers. Having recently graduated from college, Isabella and her friends quickly learn that life seldom happens as planned. Together they will combat bad boyfriends, bad bosses, tiny apartments and one-too-many bridal showers.
From beautiful Ellen who dates only ugly boys to an overbearing mother-in-law, many readers will find the characters in this novel recognizable from their own lives. Girls in White Dresses is a celebration of friendship and its overwhelming power to carry us through even the most difficult situations.
