    Liked the story, not the narration

    This book was very Emily Giffin, if you’ve read her other books like “Something Borrowed” and “Something Blue.” It is an important story in the #MeToo era. It follows a story from the first person viewpoint of 3 characters: a wealthy but unhappy Nina, whose son and husband are more than she can deal with; Tom, a single carpenter dad raising a teenaged girl; and Lyla, Tom’s daughter who is navigating life with an absent mother in a world where her father struggles to make ends meet while she attends a prestigious private school. Nina comes from a poor background and has become the complete opposite of who she once was. Her husband loves money above all else. Her son is a spoiled brat. And she is struggling with her own past currently playing out in front of her through Lyla, her son’s classmate. Tom is working hard to make ends meet. He’s been raising Lyla alone and is a bit bitter toward her mother. He doesn’t always make the best decisions and thinks he knows better than everyone, but becomes friends with Nina while they try to navigate the rebellious teen years of their kids. Lyla has just had the unthinkable happen: someone took a half naked photo of her while she was passed out drunk at a party, and sent it around Snapchat with a racist caption. It changes EVERYTHING. Emily does a wonderful job navigating a story of two parents trying to do right by their kids and raise them well but even more importantly... two incredibly strong women who have had the cards stacked against them in situations women are often put through everyday, and they are badass. I really enjoyed the story. Some of the prose came off as a bit bland or amateur but the story itself was done well enough to be overlooked. The only thing that really bothered me was with the narration. I think all 3 narrators did well but when the dialogue took place in quoting other characters, it just became annoying with the voices they moved into. I would really rather not listen to any of these narrators again but would suffer through it for another 10 hours for a story like this or better. I’m a sucker for Emily Giffin novels and I don’t think this is any different. If you want a gripping, inspirational story about badass women, finding your voice, and following your principles that you just can’t put down/stop listening to... you’ve found it.
