Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • GOOD MORNING AMERICA BUZZ PICK • From the bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada and When Life Gives You Lululemons comes a highly entertaining, sharply observed novel about sisters, their perfect lives . . . and their perfect lies.

“Goes down like an ice-cold guilty pleasure on a hot beach-reading day.”—USA Today

A seat at the anchor desk of the most-watched morning show. Recognized by millions across the country, thanks in part to her flawless blond highlights and Botox-smoothed skin. An adoring husband and a Princeton-bound daughter. Peyton is that woman. She has it all.

Until . . .

Skye, her sister, is a stay-at-home mom living in a glitzy suburb of New York. She has degrees from all the right schools and can helicopter-parent with the best of them. But Skye is different from the rest. She’s looking for something real and dreams of a life beyond the PTA and pickup.

Until . . .

Max, Peyton’s bright and quirky seventeen-year-old daughter, is poised to kiss her fancy private school goodbye and head off to pursue her dreams in film. She’s waited her entire life for this opportunity.

Until . . .

One little lie. That’s all it takes. For the illusions to crack. For resentments to surface. Suddenly the grass doesn’t look so green. And they’re left wondering: will they have what it takes to survive the truth?

Miss Thinkerbell ,

A lot of whining

All of the main characters lead very privileged lives but criticize their peers leading similar lifestyles. The teenage daughter is presented as the most balanced of all of them and is repeatedly described as « wise beyond her years. ». I found this ridiculous and annoying. If the wealthy parents are all raising their children in an irresponsible manner, how do you get a kid that’s got it together?

The book was mainly a series of glimpses of wealthy lifestyles, followed by whining about the insipidity of what was just presented.

It’s three chapters of plot crammed into 31 chapters of whining.

Dumb -about sums it up. The narration is tough to stomach

I felt myself rolling my eyes a lot.

NOT “dumb” as someone else described it. I enjoyed it. I had a hard time putting it down and wanted to keep listening. The narrator was great.
