Lauren Weisberger, author of Where the Grass Is Green and the Girls Are Pretty

A seat at the anchor desk of the most-watched morning show. An adoring husband and a Princeton-bound daughter. Peyton is that woman. She has it all. Skye, her sister, is a stay-at-home mom living in a glitzy suburb of New York. But she’s looking for something real and dreams of a life beyond the PTA and pickup. Max, Peyton’s bright and quirky 17-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. 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?
