Reviews

"Weiner has made a major literary career out of writing engrossing popular novels that take women seriously. One of Weiner's signature strengths as a writer is her ability to realistically depict how people change in body and soul...Weiner writes incisively, yet with restraint... That Summer is a compelling, nuanced novel about the long, terrible aftermath of sexual assault and the things that can be stolen from women that can never be fully restored. But, because it's a Jennifer Weiner novel, it's no polemic. It's empowering in its own way. Weiner seems to steadfastly believe in the saving grace of humor, the ability of time to open up possibilities and the strength of female friendship. Me, too."-- "Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post"
"Your ideal beach read, full of secrets and complicated female friendships."-- "Cosmopolitan"
"Weiner, the undisputed boss of the beach read, is back with another stunner. . . . That Summer incisively examines the way privilege shapes and shields those who wield it, and explores the circuitous path toward justice when healking falls short."-- "New York Times"
"Fun and flirty."-- "PopSugar"
"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"
"A page-turner. Reflective of the #MeToo movement and the importance of accountability, it's a thought-provoking and timely book."-- "Seattle Book Review"
"Like many of Weiner's works, the novel explores themes of femininity and motherhood, but it's the book's tackling of the #MeToo movement through more than one complicit character that sets it apart."-- "Shondaland"
"This one will solve all your 'I can't get into any book right now' problems."-- "TheSkimm"
"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)"
"The summer wouldn't be complete without an aptly-titled novel from Jennifer Weiner."-- "Marie Claire"
"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"
"A page turner about lost opportunities and decades-old secrets."-- "New York Post"
