Confession: I am a Jennifer Weiner stan–meaning, I have love, love, LOVED her since her first major foray into fiction, Good in Bed, and while I may have missed the last few novels, she remains one of my all-time favorites. I am happy to report that her latest Mrs. Everything is as brilliant as always. We are introduced to Jo and Bethie Kaufman, two sisters growing up in 1950s era Detroit. Bookish, boyish Jo can never please her demanding mother while Bethie, the ostensible favorite, is trying to manage her way through childhood trauama. How the family unravels after the sudden death of their father and then slowly, slowly comes back together again is a magic ride. I couldn’t put this down and you won’t be able to either.
