Publisher's summary

A Washington Post and Amazon Charts bestseller.

Honesty is the best policy...except maybe when it comes to marriage in this brilliant novel about the high price of perfection from bestselling author Camille Pagán.

Wife. Mother. Breadwinner. Penelope Ruiz-Kar is doing it all - and barely keeping it together. Meanwhile, her best friend, Jenny Sweet, appears to be sailing through life. As close as the two women are, Jenny’s passionate marriage, pristine house, and ultra-polite child stand in stark contrast to Penelope’s underemployed husband, Sanjay, their unruly brood, and the daily grind she calls a career.

Then a shocking tragedy reveals that Jenny’s life is far from perfect. Reeling, Penelope vows to stop keeping the peace and finally deal with the issues in her relationship. So she and Sanjay agree to a radical proposal: both will write a list of changes they want each other to make - then commit to complete and total honesty.

What seems like a smart idea quickly spirals out of control, revealing new rifts and even deeper secrets. As Penelope stares down the possible implosion of her marriage, she must ask herself: When it comes to love, is honesty really the best policy?

Critic reviews

“A poignant novel that explores truthfulness and boundaries in friendship, marriage, and more. With relatable characters and a realistic plot, this character-driven novel will have readers wondering if honesty really is the best policy.” --Booklist

“A tale of friendship, this novel offers insight into the complexities of women’s lives and how one woman learns to deal with it through the pain of loss and heartache and come out on top.” --New York Journal of Books

“Camille Pagán’s novels are compulsively readable, and her latest may just be her ultimate page-turner. Smart, witty, and exacting, I’m Fine and Neither Are You examines the high price of perfection and the rewards of getting real - even when doing so jeopardizes your most important relationships. I loved it.” --Sarah Jio, New York Times bestselling author
