Summer read

I'm a fan of catchy titles and sleek packaging and this novel by Rumaan Alam drew me in immediately. Given the allure of affluence and appearance, who doesn't aspire to be rich and pretty? The story takes place in and around New York City, a locale near and dear to my heart and the plot revolves around two young women, long-time friends whose lives take very different paths. As someone who came late to motherhood I witnessed the trajectory of my day to day concerns having less and less overlap with my gal pals who passed on bearing offspring, Now, with my kids mostly grown and flown it's not hard to find an uninterrupted hour or two. A very pleasant way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
