Then Came You by Jennifer Weiner

Jennifer Weiner is one of my favorite Chick Lit authors.  I find she's too real to be stuffed in with all the fluffy, breezy books that usually determines that category.  Then Came You doesn't disappoint.  It tells a tale of surrogacy.  Something I'd never read about in a novel before, a very intriguing, timely topic.  This book is told from 4 points of view: the college student considering egg donation as a way to make a large sum of money to help out her addict father, the housewife looking to become a surrogate as a way to help out her financially struggling family and the grown step-daughter, the trophy wife struggling with fertility issues, mistrustful of her father's new wife and need for a baby.  I loved reading this book and am now thinking it's time to go back and revisit some of Jennifer Weiner's earlier tales.
