Can't-Wait Wednesday: Where The Grass Is Green And The Girls Are Pretty

 Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating! 

Lauren Weisberger
Expected publication date: May 18, 2021 
A college admissions scandal threatens to topple the lives of two sisters navigating the suburban jungle in this sharply observed novel from the #1 bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada and When Life Gives You Lululemons.

Peyton Marcus seems to have it all: She’s the co-anchor of a hit morning news show; her husband, Isaac, runs a successful business; and her daughter, Max, is headed to Dartmouth. Peyton’s sister, Skye, is about to finally achieve her mission to open a home for academically gifted, underprivileged young girls, with a little help from Isaac’s business associates. All seems to be going according to plan—until Isaac is arrested in an Ivy League admissions sting, jeopardizing everything the sisters have worked so hard for. But that’s not the whole story. When dark secrets in their posh world—rife with social landmines, barre classes, and Botox—come to light, Peyton and Skye are forced to reckon with the dreams they’d had when they were young and start to wonder if the compromises they made to get there were worth it.

With her signature satirical style, sharp wit, and clear-eyed insights, Lauren Weisberger has written a timely, entertaining novel about what it means to have—and lose—everything. When the chips are down, can you count on your sister to stand by you? - from Goodreads

Lauren Weisberger has been an auto-read author for me for years!  I like the timely issue of the college admission scandal and the focus on the sisters' relationship.

  3. Seriously! I can't stop singing now! Take me down to panama city.....

    Anyhow, I have never read one of Weisberger's books, though I have several on my TBR. It seems the admissions scandal is drawing some more author interest.

  7. This topic was ripped straight from the headlines, wasn't it? Very relevant to today. I haven't tried this author before, but I'm very tempted to give this book a try. I hope you enjoy Where the Grass is Green and the Girls Are Pretty when you read it!

  11. I don't think I've heard about this author before (I could be wrong of course) but if she's an auto-read author of yours then I'm sure her books are great!

  12. I've never heard of this one before. The admission scandal had to have come from last year's debacle. I like that the sisters are reflecting on their lives and that it's the guy that is the center of the scandal.
