en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – April 2011
The smash-hit debut novel for every woman who has ever had a complicated love-hate friendship. Rachel White is the consummate good girl. A hard-working attorney at a large Manhattan law firm and a diligent maid of honor to her charmed best friend Darcy, Rachel has always played by all the rules. Since grade school, she has watched Darcy shine, quietly accepting the sidekick role in their lopsided friendship. But that suddenly changes the night of her thirtieth birthday when Rachel finally confesses her feelings to Darcy's fiance, and is both horrified and thrilled to discover that he feels the same way. As the wedding date draws near, events spiral out of control, and Rachel knows she must make a choice between her heart and conscience. In so doing, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren't always neat, and sometimes you have to risk everything to be true to yourself. This new tie-in edition will coincide with the release of the film, starring Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Everyone is raving about Emily Giffin and "Something Borrowed"!

"Emily Giffin brings a fresh, new voice to women's fiction. "Something Borrowed" is a deftly written and convincing tale of a friendship gone comically---and at times poignantly---awry."
- Meg Cabot, author of "The Boy Next Door" and "The Princess Diaries"

""Something Borrowed" is a winner; it has rare emotional depth. In "Something Borrowed," Rachel, a perpetually self-sacrificing nice girl, shocks herself by launching an affair with her best friend's fiance. This first blow for freedom sets off a chain reaction that will inspire pathologically nice girls everywhere to strike blows of their own."
- Valerie Frankel, author of "The Accidental Virgin"

""Something Borrowed" by Emily Giffin is a luxurious page-turner of a debut novel that marks the arrival of a tremendously bright, clever new voice in women's fiction. In quick-moving, captivating prose punctuated with dead-on dialogue, Giffin deftly captures the complications and humor of love, betrayal, career, and friendship for a city girl at the edge of thirty; you forget this is just a novel and won't want to put it down."
- Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez, author of "The Dirty Girls Social Club" and "Playing with Boys"

"I absolutely loved it and read it in two sittings because I could not put it down. It was amazing to me how Emily handled this complex moral issue with such compassion and clear-sightedness. I believed it all the way and forgot about the rest of my life while I was immersed in it. Her three main characters are portrayed as multifaceted and endearingly flawed---just like real human beings. Something Borrowed is also very well written---nice, spare prose, which kept me pressing forward, agog to know what happened. This is a book which takes a clear-eyed look at the rivalry that exists in even the best of friendships. Congratulations to Emily on having written such a compelling, engrossing, and uplifting book."
- Marian Keyes, author of "Sushi for Beginners""
