In this riveting novel, Emily Giffin tells a story of characters who face impossible choices, but emerge to live more truly to themselves than they ever have before.
Nina Browning is living the good life after marrying into Nashville’s elite. Her husband’s tech business is booming, and her adored son, Finch, is bound for Princeton. But sometimes, the girl in her who was raised solidly middle-class wonders if she has gotten just a little too comfortable.
Thomas Volpe is a single dad working multiple jobs. His adored daughter, Lila, was recently accepted to Nashville’s most prestigious private high school on a scholarship. But with a Latina mom, Lila doesn’t always blend in.
Then one devastating photo changes everything. Lila passes out at a party, drunk and half-naked. Finch snaps a picture, types out a caption and sends it out to a few friends. The photo spreads quickly, and before long, an already divided community is buzzing with scandal and assigning blame. In the middle of it all, Nina finds herself relating more to Thomas than her own husband.
