Recommendation: All We Ever Wanted Was Everything
I picked up this book at Borders about a month ago because it looked like a fun read (and it was part of the Buy One, Get One 1/2 Off; I'm a sucker for anything that's less than full price). Anyway, it's a throughly entertaining, quick, easy read. It's about a woman and her two daughters. The woman, who lives in an upscale neighborhood, finds out on the day of her husband's company's IPO that her husband has been cheating on her with her best friend and is leaving her (and taking the fortune he just made in the IPO with him). Her life starts to fall apart and we quickly learn that the lives of her two daughters, one of whom is in her 20's and one of whom is in high school, have been unraveling as well. The story is fun to read and, despite their many flaws, I found myself routing for these three women. If it were summer, I would say this is the perfect beach read, but since fall temperatures are starting to arrive, I'll say it's a great book to curl up with under a blanket on a rainy day.
