A seat at the anchor desk of the most-watched morning show. Recognized by millions across the country, thanks in part to her flawless blond highlights and Botox-smoothed skin. An adoring husband and a Princeton-bound daughter. Peyton Marcus has it all. Until . . .

Skye, her sister, is a stay-at-home mom living in a glitzy suburb of New York. She has degrees from all the right schools and can helicopter-parent with the best of them. But Skye is different from the rest. She’s looking for something real and dreams of a life beyond the PTA and pickup. Until . . .

Max, Peyton’s bright and quirky seventeen-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. Until . . .

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?

Lauren Weisberger is the New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada, which was published in forty languages and made into a major motion picture starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway. Currently, producer Kevin McCollum and musician Elton John are adapting The Devil Wears Prada for the stage. Weisberger’s six other novels were all bestsellers, and her books have sold more than thirteen million copies worldwide. A graduate of Cornell University, she lives in Connecticut with her husband and two children.

Jennifer Blankfein lives in Westport and is the creator and writer of Book Nation by Jen, a blog of book reviews and recommendations.  Also a marketing consultant, she is currently working with LifeLines.com, ourtowncrier.com and with various other small businesses and authors.  Jen finds peace and happiness in her dance classes, at the beach with a book, and too often in a big bowl of pasta.  Sign up for Book Nation by Jen and follow her on Facebook Book Nation by Jen, Instagram @booknationbyjen and Twitter @jenblankfein.
