Girls Night In by Various Authors

Title: Girls Night In

Author: Various

Genre: Chick Lit

Summary: Various women authors donate their short stories for the charity War Child.

The Take-Away: Short stories are not novels and some authors understand this better than others. Of the 20+ stories, I thought 7 or 8 were fantastic and an equal number that were horrid. But short story is something of an lost art form. This collection is great to see what works and what doesn't.

Recommendation: Buy it. All of the royalities are going to charity.
