The Wonder Spot by Melissa Bank

Sophie Applebaum is the middle child in an average, barely-practicing Jewish family. When the story begins she’s about 13 and must go to Hebrew school to have bat mitzvah, like her cousin Rebecca. Each chapter portrays a new stage in Sophie’s life through her 30’s. We are introduced to her friends and lovers, and like many young women, she isn’t sure what she wants ‘when she grows up,’ so we watch her bumble through jobs, boyfriends, etc.

The wit that is inherent in Banks’ writing is what made this book so easy to read. I zipped through in less than two days and lost count of the number of times I laughed out loud. Check catalog for availability. You may also enjoy The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing by Melissa Bank.
