Maggie is a very real character. She is clumsy but fun and her favorite pastime is watching TV. Her journey from love lost to self-discovery is one many women could relate to. Maggie's friends and family add comedic relief and drama, I'm sure we all have an Aunt Helen in our lives that is blatantly honest and seems to bring up topics at the worst times. As I followed Maggie through her year until she turned 40, there was a great amount of insecurity about her ticking biological clock, the age itself and all of her friends and family members that were her age and married with kids. At some point, this became a little overwhelming to me, but as Maggie began to discover who she really is, there was a great relief. Overall, How Do You Know? is a contemporary, fun, journey of self-discovery that any woman could relate to.
