Despite my best intentions, I followed the link to Ms. In Her Shoes' site. My only impression, having not read anything by her, Bank, or Sittenfield? The lady doth protest too much. I felt like the only way her review of the review made sense was if it was intentionally ridiculously meta. I mean, responding to cattiness with cattiness had to have been an intentional, ironic twist, right?

Also, a cursory peek at amazon.com for the cover art of these books reveals the neither Prep nor Bank's book have hot pink on the cover, which bodes well for them. I believe it was Shakespeare, or perhaps Chaucer, who said: "Those who have sandwiched their words between hot pink covers have doomed them to eternal irrelevance."


Actually, if I'm not mistaken, Prep has a hot pink belt on the cover. But I don't think that's what makes a book irrelevant.


I stand corrected. The belt is indeed hot pink. Based on this scientific study, I would say Melissa Bank is your clear winner.
