Who am I?
Why did Jen love this book?
It’s hard to put into words what a really, really great book does to me. But this one did it, as I knew it would (I loved the author’s debut, The Push).
Audrain manages to capture motherhood in a
way no one else does. When a terrible accident happens—but was it an
accident?—it forces a wedge between neighborhood friends, all of whom harbor
their own secrets. The story explores envy, women’s friendships, motherhood,
and lies we tell ourselves in such a raw and unfiltered way. And the ending
(!!)…don’t cheat…getting there is the best part, trust me.
