"A droll investigation of what we owe our neighbors and ourselves."
-- Vanity Fair

"A brilliant, hilarious look at modern-day community and the distance between who we are and who we say we are. Insightful, honest, and surprisingly sly. I loved this book." -- Maria Semple

"Oh, how I loved this delightful, unputdownable novel! A pitch-perfect comedy of manners, a balm for difficult times, a charming coming of age story, Community Board is ultimately the literary equivalent of a warm hug."
-- Joanna Rakoff, bestselling author of My Salinger Year

"I can't believe how good this book is! Tara Conklin once again dazzles with a hilarious, heartfelt, and wholly original tale. She writes about depression and grief with such a light touch, and her mesmerizing sentences immediately draw you into this quirky and fun community--one I was sad to leave behind! Read this!"
-- Etaf Rum, author of the New York Times bestseller A Woman Is No Man

"Sometimes we're not ready to jump. We need a little push. When Darcy Clipper -- a heroine for the ages -- gets a major shove, she finds herself in a brave new world of second chances, radical decisions, and transformative change. Funny, cinematic, and heartfelt, Community Board is a propulsive delight." -- Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Exiles

-- Jane L. Rosen, author of Eliza Starts a Rumor

"A bittersweet, laugh-out-loud novel...Community Board is a crafty send-up about one woman struggling to come to terms with--and rebuild--her battered self-esteem.... Darcy may seem a poor soul, but her sharp, bright, enlightened mind--and her snarky, lovably endearing narrative voice, supplemented with zany e-mails and community posts--will easily win the affection of readers rooting wholeheartedly for her reinvention." -- Shelf Awareness

"Conklin delivers a winning third novel, with Darcy's smart, introspective voice at the heart of it. Her unconventional adventures (often hilarious, always interesting) drive home the importance of community and how important it is to show up and participate." -- Booklist

"Conklin has created a heartening look at a community whose people realize they're better together than alone." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Heartwarming, hilarious." -- BookBub
