I could easily picture this book becoming a movie. At least that’s what I feel while I’m reading this book because Suzanne’s writing is THAT good. This is the most hilarious book I’ve ever read in a long time. This book is about a group of who have found friendship over “Rejection Letters.”

Janet Johnson moved to a small town called Southlea Bay with her husband, left her life back in California. She always said to her husband that she wanted to feel like belong to a group just like she and her group of friends in California. Because she find the women in this small town is weird and that she can’t relate to them.

Until one day, she got invited to “The Rejected Writes Book Club” meeting. Janet did everything she got to get out of the club.

Janet got a phone call from her son-in-law that her (estranged) daughter got pregnant with twins and she needed there in San Fransisco to take care of her daughter. Just when she thought she finally have a reason to get away from the Rejected Ladies, she ended up road tripping with them to San Fransisco.

Will this trip be the worst or the best time of Janet’s life?

The Rejected Writers’ Book Club taught us to find the good thing even in the worst scenario ever.  To open doors to others and see that they’re actually not that bad. That sometimes all you got to do just let down all the walls around you in order to be happy. And nothing a good home cooked can’t fix right?

I really loved this book. It was hilarious, heartwarming, and  somehow makes me hungry.
