I normally love Jennifer Weiner's books, but this one just left me cold. Couldn't get into the characters at all, and that's usually a strong point for her. Very disappointed.

I was so exited to read Jennifer Weiner's new novel and was thrilled that it was a Peak Pick. I was disappointed to discover what a big, rambling mess it is. The story was scattered and not cohesive as a reader would have enjoyed. I also found this book very shallow, simplistic, hard to connect with and nonsensical in some parts. The # Me Too stuff at the end seemed rushed and tacked on.

I read a lot of reviews that raved about this book. I am glad that others enjoyed it.

Barnes & Noble has chosen Mrs. Everything as its June 2019 national book club selection. "A powerful novel that follows an American family across five tumultuous decades and is a perfect mix of powerful, poignant, and funny."

This story touches on three generations of women in a family, with the main story line centering around two sisters. Jo and Bethie are cut from different cloth and occasionally their relationship suffers for it, but the bonds of sisterhood keep pulling them back to each other as we follow their lives throughout the decades. The author did a great job with the characters and the sense of time and place was wonderful. It was an immersive and enjoyable read.
