Predictable Chick-lit

Odd One Out - Monica McInerney

If you like predictable romance/family drama books then you might like this one. It is a quick read about a modern day Cinderella, Sylvie, who needs to change her life and make it on her own without her family controlling her every move.
Although it is a sweet tale, I found that there was too much telling and not enough showing. It was like reading a diary, at times e.g. He said this, then we did this etc.
I did like the character, Aunt Mill. I got more of a sense of who she was by the messages left on Sylvie's answering machine.
I didn't hate this book, but it didn't hold any surprises for me. If you are into writer's like Nicholas Sparks, then you might like this.
