“"I loved that Charbit pulls us deliciously and dangerously into Maxine's world gracefully and seamlessly; we have all had these kinds of relationships, and Maxine's world is so carefully compiled, chapter by chapter, that I felt I was Maxine in the throes of co-dependency! As Maxine goes from clueless to savvy, and Sam's dreary tale comes out, we can't wait to turn the page to find out what Maxine will do. Well done, good read." ~~ The Review Broads
"A good book; well-written and the story / characters drew me in from the get go.
A Life Lived Ridiculously was a great read and definitely worth four stars. Probably a "must read" for most single women too..." ~~ RebeccasReads
"We have all dated liars who will say anything in order to get what they want. Charbit captures everything that makes the dating scene simultaneously so exciting and so frustrating, from the exhilaration of a first kiss to the despair when you realize that he is ignoring your messages." ~~ Baltimore Jewish Times
"From the very beginning of this novel readers will smile; they will then reach 'all out laughter' by the second page. The amazing thing about this story, however, is that laughter turns frightening when the author offers up a twist that readers will not see coming." ~~ Feathered Quill
"Dr. Charbit does indeed use her vast experience with the subjects of the book to pull the reader in with remarkably developed characters. Especially for a first novel, A Life Lived Ridiculously succeeds in its stated purpose: it makes us aware of and think closely about our stereotypes and generalizations in the mental health world" ~~ PsychCentral ”
