I wasn't prepared for the plot twist and it dampened my enthusiasm for what I thought was a beachy read.

Great beach read, and although plot points strain credulity at times, it is absorbing and hard to put down.

Easy summer read (or easy summer listening since that's what I did).

time to part ways with jennifer weiner. on one hand she talks about the difficulty of being heavyset, body image, accepting yourself. then on the other hand, the love interest is fit and gorgeous and there are unkind descriptions of other people's appearance.

I can’t think of another novel in which the characters grew up in New York City, rather than moving there as young adults to fulfill their dreams a la Carrie Bradshaw, and Weiner’s descriptions are immersive. Each Sunday, when Daphne was a girl, she and her father would find a new restaurant in the city that would challenge their palates. Daphne’s and Drue’s families are Jewish, Darshini is Indian, there are LGBTQ characters, and a Laotian clothing designer. The diversity is natural, never screaming that the novel is “Woke,” but instead letting the characters reflect the heterogeneity of a city with almost nineteen million residents.
