    Laney Brooks acts out. Married with kids, she takes the drugs she wants, sleeps with the men she wants, and disappears when she wants. Lurking beneath Laney's composed surface is the impulse to follow in the footsteps of her father, to leave and topple her family's balance in the process.

    Regina-Audible says: "Dark and Unapologetic"
    "Not as good as her first-but worth a try!"
    Overall

    After being blown away by "A Mouthful of Air" which was so detailed and moving, and yet not an upper, this doesn't really compare. I think the first book blew this one away and set the bar very high. Definitely a sad subject but the depth of character didn't seem to be quite the same as the first book. Will not give up on author....lots of potential!

    Addie Downs and Valerie Adler will be best friends forever. That's what Addie believes after Valerie moves across the street when they're both nine years old. But in the wake of betrayal during their teenage years, Val is swept into the popular crowd, while mousy, sullen Addie becomes her school's scapegoat.

    i just read all of jennifer weiners books in a row and then to read this...what a let down. different style which was what kept me reading it thinking that it would pick up but it didnt. i wont give up on her as a writer but she should go back to her old style. just felt that there were lots of gaps...

    It's Monday morning when Meghan Fitzmaurice blows her perfect life to bits. The host of Rise and Shine, the country's highest-rated morning talk show, Meghan cuts to a commercial break, but not before she mutters two forbidden words into her open mike. It's the end of an era, not only for Meghan, a household face who is not equipped to deal with disgrace, but for her younger sister Bridget, a social worker in the Bronx who has always lived in Meghan's long shadow.

    Overall

    I thought this was a great story and written with so much detail. I felt like I was a part of the story and knew the characters inside and out. The ending was very unexpected and had lots of twists and turns. I was sad when the story ended as it was all encompassing. I absolutely recommend this book
