Book Buzz: Where the Grass Is Green and the Girls Are Pretty by Lauren Weisberger

“Fearless and hilarious . . . begs to be read poolside with a cocktail.” —Emily Giffin



A seat at the anchor desk of the most-watched morning show. Recognized by millions across the country, thanks in part to her flawless blond highlights and Botox-smoothed skin. An adoring husband and a Princeton-bound daughter. Peyton is that woman. She has it all.


Until . . .


Skye, her sister, is a stay-at-home mom living in a glitzy suburb of New York. She has degrees from all the right schools and can helicopter-parent with the best of them. But Skye is different from the rest. She’s looking for something real and dreams of a life beyond the PTA and pickup.


Until . . .


Max, Peyton’s bright and quirky seventeen-year-old daughter, is poised to kiss her fancy private school goodbye and head off to pursue her dreams in film. She’s waited her entire life for this opportunity.


Until . . .


One little lie. That’s all it takes. For the illusions to crack. For resentments to surface. Suddenly the grass doesn’t look so green. And they’re left wondering: will they have what it takes to survive the truth?


“Delicious . . . Underneath the shiny surface, both [When Life Gives You] Lululemons and [The Devil Wears] Prada are exploring what it’s like to be a woman buffeted by conflicting messages about career, relationships and motherhood.”
―Lisa Scottoline, The Washington Post
