“Chick Lit reads as an intermediary between the success story and the mental illness narrative, especially as much of the ‘early’ chick lit of the late 1990s did not conclude with a romantic ending. Chick lit of the late 1990s has been referred to as ‘dump literature’ by Barbara Defoe Whitehead, as the novels concerned themselves chiefly with the fallout of a breakup and the protagonist’s attempt to come to terms with it through writing.” (p. 137, Print).
