THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!'You'll love this book and wish she was your friend' MINDY KALING 'If you have time for only one book this summer, pick this one' THE NEW YORK TIMESFrom Jennifer Weiner, the bestselling author of IN HER SHOES and WHO DO YOU LOVE . . .

____________Do we change or does the world change us?Jo and Bethie Kaufman were born into a world full of promise. Growing up in 1950s Detroit, they live in a perfect 'Dick and Jane' house, where their roles in the family are clearly defined. Jo is the tomboy, the bookish rebel with a passion to make the world more fair; Bethie is the pretty, feminine good girl, a would-be star who enjoys the power her beauty confers and dreams of a traditional life.

But the truth ends up looking differently than what the girls imagined. Jo and Bethie survive traumas and tragedies. As their lives unfold against the background of free love and Vietnam, Woodstock and Women's Lib, Bethie becomes an adventure-loving wild child who dives headlong into the counterculture, and is up for anything (except settling down).

Meanwhile, Jo becomes a proper young mother in Connecticut, a witness to the changing world instead of a participant. Neither woman inhabits the world she dreams of, or has a life that feels authentic, or brings her joy. Is it too late for the women to finally stake a claim on happily ever after?In her most ambitious novel yet, Jennifer Weiner tells a story of two sisters who, with their different dreams and different paths, offer answers to the question: How should a woman be in the world?Mrs.

Everything is an ambitious, richly textured journey through history - and herstory - as these two sisters navigate a changing America over the course of their lives. ____________Praise for Jennifer Weiner: 'Fiercely funny, powerfully smart, and remarkably brave' CHERYL STRAYED'Like Helen Fielding, Weiner balances fresh humour, deft characterisations, and literary sensibility' THE GUARDIAN'Mrs Everything is like Beaches but with mothers and daughters and sisters. I may never recover' JILL GRUNEWALD'Generous and entertaining' Publishers Weekly'You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll want to read it again' TheSkimm'Blends humour and heartbreak to create an irresistible novel' Publishers Weekly'Weiner [is] a marvellously natural storyteller' Publishers Weekly 'Jennifer Weiner has done it again.

She has made me feel more emotions than I've felt in a long time' Goodreads reviewer'Beautifully written and heart-touching' Goodreads reviewer
