Until the Real Thing Comes Along by Elizabeth Berg

Title: Until the Real Thing Comes Along
Author: Elizabeth Berg
Genre: Chicklit
Reason for Reading: It was in a box of free books. For me, it doesn't take much more than that.
Pages: 241, plus an interview with the author and a reader's guide (somehow, those seem most common in books that I don't love. It's tragic really.)
Copyright Date: 1999
Cover: Baby feet sticking up from a white blanket. The title and author are embossed in gold letters.
First line: "This is how you play the house game: Go for a drive to somewhere you've never been before."
Best part: The book had some moments of real sweetness, and the protagonist grew a lot.
Worst part: She's in love with her gay best friend? Playah, please.
Imaginary Theme Song: "Ironic" by Alanis Morisette
Grade: C
Recommended for: Those that like chicklit and/or real estate.
