    I was initially intrigued by the description It sounded like something that would be right up my alley I ll admit, when I first realized it was a story of letters, I was a little nervous I worried that it wouldn t hold my attention Boy, I was wrong This book had me laughing, not just a chuckle, but out loud There were some moments I went back to re read so I could laugh again I absolutely love Roxy She is so quirky and funny, but so real She
