Reviews

"Weiner's storytelling skill is such that she paints an uncompromising, complicated portrait of the insidious dangers of the patriarchy that is also a lot of fun to read. Weiner's latest is a summer banger with a ripped-from-the headlines plot, which is sure to garner lots of attention."-- "Booklist (starred)"
"It's the beach read to end all beach reads."--Entertainment Weekly
"Part dissection of female friendships, part murder mystery, part social-media tutorial, part love story and--the best of them all--part portrait of an overweight, under-confident striver. Daphne is an endearing creation: funny, plucky, willing to acknowledge certain critical lapses in judgment and eminently worthy of the love that she is certain will never come her way." --The Wall Street Journal
"Clever and empowering." --People
"Jennifer Weiner's beachy books are basically a staple of the season, and this is no exception. This twisty novel about female friendship will make the hours fly by."-- "Good Housekeeping"
"Weiner's ability to take a complex, painful situation and spin it into an engaging, thoughtful story about women's inner lives is showcased throughout this novel. The beautiful beachside settings and aspirational lifestyles that women's fiction readers gravitate toward are on full display, but the depth of the story is what shines. A likely summer blockbuster, this will have readers looking forward to the third volume in trilogy."-- "Library Journal"
"Weiner follows up Big Summer with another emotionally charged drama, this one centered on a #MeToo reckoning. Weiner's writing is infused with evocative depictions... [and her] legions of fans will applaud this emotionally affecting and often surprising story."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"Fans will enjoy references to the murder plot of Weiner's previous novel, Big Summer (2020), and sprinklings of Weiner's signature descriptions of food and cooking."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
PRAISE FOR BIG SUMMER:

"Sexy and satisfying. . . Observant, self-aware, and very funny, Big Summer will delight Jennifer Weiner's many fans and could be just the absorbing take-me-away read so many of us need right now." --USA Today
"It's deliciously fun: frothy entertainment with surprising depth. Big Summer is big fun, and then some. It's empowering and surprising--a reminder to put down the phone and enjoy each moment for what it is, rather than what it could look like on Instagram." --The Washington Post
