NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER •

GOOD MORNING AMERICA BUZZ PICK •

From the best-selling 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.

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?

Story is blah and performance and not great

I was really looking forward to this book and have really enjoyed other books from this author. I found the story dragging and the 2 of the 3 main characters a little blah to the point of being sometimes unlikable (Macs being the exception). There doesn't seem to be real growth and the endings of certain story lines are also just blah, to the point of being a little deus ex machina. The narrator was generally Ok, but the voice used for the 6 yr old was beyond grating. All in all, not the summer read I was hoping for.

A great Beach read

This is perfect for a beach read or something to take with you on a trip. It’s easy to pick up and put down without having to think about what was happening when you left off.

I’m not going to recap the story because the title details does that just fine.

The narration is perfect. She does an amazing job telling the story by slipping in and out of characters. Her voice is easy to listen to - so many can absolutely ruin a book.

The ending to the book is annoying. I get why it took the time it did - but don’t take us on this journey and leave the future of the protagonist so up in the air. It isn’t cute or fun - it’s frustrating for the reader not to get any closure for the character we are invested in.

Honestly - if the book stopped just 2 paragraphs before - it would have been better.

The reason I didn’t give the book a 5

There is no better narrator than T. Plummer but the ending was one of the very worse. Maybe she intends to continue in her next book. If not then shame on her. Absolutely cut the ending to soon.

Good until the last drip

Therese Plummer performs very well and makes the book worth a listen. The story moves along pretty well until we get to the end, which is anything but clever and far from what we have come to expect from the author.

But wait, it can't end like this?!

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this one, but to my surprise it kept my interest. I want to know what's next ?! How does this story really end?! Where's the part II?

Let down

Let down. No real resolution to several story lines. Feels like I wasted a credit.

Fun summer read

Not my favorite by this author but still a fun summer read. I really enjoyed this book up until the last 45 seconds or so.

I want the story to continue

I didn't have high expectations for this book because I felt like it was a story we already knew from the headlines but it surprised me and I hope there's a continuation.

Not entertaining. Similar to Varsity Blues case.

Struggled to finish. Very bougie. Couldn't relate to any of the characters and their elite lifestyles.
