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?

So. Good.

Wow! I couldn’t put it down! So good!

Just keep moving

This book was annoying and predictable. Nothing was surprising or exciting to read within it. The references to overpriced brands and shallow life advice, in nearly every other line, further irritated me. Very disappointing.


A surefire hit!

Best selling author Lauren Weisberger delivers a surefire hit with Where the Grass is Green and the Girls are Pretty. This straight from the headlines, laugh out loud funny novel skewers both suburban and city life as realistic characters deal with the problems they create.

Peyton Marcus, New York morning show anchor (think Savannah Guthrie), sees her carefully curated life begin to fall apart when she reports on the newest college admission bribery scandal. Within hours, her husband Isaac is led away in handcuffs, and she is part of the biggest story on all channels.

Her sister Skye has moved her family to Paradise, a suburb full of Lululemoned yoga moms and their tequila importing investment banker husbands. Skye, a veteran of charity work in Uganda, tries to reinvent herself as a helicopter mom but fails. A new project has reenergized her but may be affected by Isaac’s decisions.

Also caught up in the whirlwind news story in Max, Peyton’s teenage daughter who didn’t want to attend Princeton until she couldn’t. Free from the Ivy League, she has to discover what she really wants to do instead of rebelling against her parents’ choices for her.

The destructive secrets Peyton and Skye are keeping from their husbands and each other will eventually be revealed in a satisfying conclusion. Where the Grass is Green and the Girls are Pretty sparkles with humor and satire. You’ll love it as much as I did! 5 stars.

Thank you to NetGalley, Random House and Lauren Weisberger for this ARC.
