Publisher's Summary

From USA Today bestselling author Rochelle B. Weinstein comes an emotional novel for mothers, daughters, and anyone who has ever felt imperfect.

Emma and Bobby Ross enjoy a charmed life on the shores of Miami Beach. They are a model family with a successful business, an uncomplicated marriage, and two blessedly typical twin daughters, Zoe and Lily. They are established members of a tight-knit community.

Then, on the night of the girls’ fifteenth birthday party, they learn of Zoe’s heartbreaking mistake - a private and humiliating indiscretion that goes viral and thrusts her and her family into the center of a shocking public scandal.

As the family’s core is shattered by disgrace, judgment, and retribution, the fallout takes its toll. But for Emma, the shame runs deeper. Her daughter’s reckless behavior has stirred memories of her own secrets that could break a marriage, a family, and friendships forever.

Save your $ - find a better book...

I couldn't stomach the writing...I actually thought it was satire because of the AWFUL conversations being used by the characters. I even googled the book to be sure. There is literally no person I know or encountered in real life that would talk like the mother, father, daughters (even the friends), in this book...and I only made it to chapter 4. I read other reveiws and knew it would not get better...

The narration by Tavia Gilbert is not her best; I'm sure the writing didn't help but I've listened to my favorite narrators read less than stellar books and I was not bothered as much - this was like chalk on a blackboard.

I see why it gets high reviews because of the subject matter; sexting, cyberbullying, social media as a weapon of mass destruction, etc...but damn, I can definitely read a better book with remotely believable characters who talk like real people.

Run from the book - find a better story with the same message. I wish this lived up to it's potential

Too Much drama

I really did not enjoy this book. It was too lifetime movie like for me.

In This Age

In this age of social media & helicopter parenting it is not surprising to find this cautionary tale. For some it may resonate as "too c!ose to home". The story is not without its flaws however. The author has indulged herself in the murky pool of melodrama. The teen daughter caught up in consensual experimentation, an hysterical mother drowning in her own youthful hidden indiscretion & a father who is little more than a selfrighteous jerk. The story plays out to a predictably sappy ending. All in all, not my cup of tea

Painful

I had high hopes for this story, but for me it just went on and on and on. I eventually skipped through just so I could find out how it ended. The mom in the story was very whiny and overly dramatic for me. Maybe some people are like this, but she really started getting on my nerves.
I personally was just glad this was over.

Beautiful

What a beautifully written story about the love between a mother and daughter who are on a journey for forgiveness, understanding and truth. I have a daughter of my own and can’t even begin to imagine how Emma and Zoe felt!! Perfectly timed subject matter for the current state of technology and age of the internet and the damage they can cause. Perfect narration only made this story even better-through her narration I felt so many feelings. I cried, laughed, grew angry and finally forgiveness.

Audio Somebody’s Daughter

This was a great story well spoken and enjoyable I don’t often give 5 Stars but this was well worth it some chapters I read twice if I wasn’t sure of something it’s an enjoyable read.
I only have one daughter and it made me really think what I would have done in the same situation.
I also was thankful we were not in the digital age when Caroline was a teenager.
Hope that I can find another book by the author that is as good !

Somebody's Daughter

I loved the story. The characters were all too human. No, not too much so, but believable.

Yes it's sappy but ....

I still enjoyed it very much. There were even a few surprises! This is a modern storyline with a Harlequin feel. I usually enjoy thrillers but this was a nice change.
