One of Good Housekeeping's Best Summer Reads
"Outrageously entertaining... an atmospheric, sharp read, perfect for fans of Celeste Ng and Taylor Jenkins Reid." - The Nerd Daily
“One of the smartest, sharpest, and funniest books I’ve read in years… Some books are meant to be devoured—this one does the devouring.”—Emily Henry, NYT Bestselling author of Beach Read
“This eerily prescient novel is like a fun-house mirror that reflects exactly what’s wrong with our girlboss-obsessed, wealth-driven world. Certain moments have a delightfully juicy ‘ripped from the headlines’ appeal — only Hankin’s version of events is so much more entertaining.”—Hannah Orenstein, author of Head Over Heels
“A story that will make you laugh, gasp and reconsider the depths of your own tote-bag feminism—from a writer so endlessly charming and witty, you can’t even be mad at her for it.“—Megan Angelo, author of Followers
“Feminism, astrology, and politics merge in this funny, high-stakes story... Hankin’s novel is hilarious, fast-paced, and so very original.”—Amy Poeppel, author of Small Admissions
“This book feels so utterly of the moment, and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.”—Brenda Janowitz, author of The Grace Kelly Dress
