    Chick Lit for the 21st century - at last! This didn't strike me as the kind of chick lit that I'm used to reading - and I've read a lot - but that's not a bad thing. It makes a nice change to find a story that bucks the trend, and "New Beginnings" does that in several ways. Firstly, it's written as a diary/blog, which many authors have shied away from in the shadow of Helen Fielding's success with "Bridget Jones' Diary". Secondly, it's not written as a romantic comedy - it deals with very modern issues and dilemmas, and there's a lot of very emotional scenes where the characters go through some truly heartbreaking events. Thirdly, there's sex - realistic sex, not the boring bodice-ripping kind - and the euphoria and anxieties that accompany it. There's nothing too graphic, but what is there comes across as very natural. The main characters, Tasha and Jamie, are exceptionally well-written. I very quickly found myself feeling sympathy and support for Tasha, and I... More > think I fell in love with Jamie a bit too. Even though the story is told through Tasha's eyes, and is therefore very one-sided, I felt that I easily got to know her and Jamie, and their family and friends. I won't give anything away about the story, but I will say that I thoroughly enjoyed it and have been recommending it to all my friends. Anyone who wants to read a modern romance that has real people in it, instead of swooning maidens and fairy-tale heroes, will love this book. My only disappointment was the ending: I didn't want it to finish, and I hope there's more!< Less
