Descripción

“Big Summer is the perfect beach read.” (PopSugar)

“Friendship, weddings, and rich people being weird? Obviously I am in.” (Literary Hub)

“If you love Jennifer Weiner, you’ll love this one.”(Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

The number one New York Times best selling author of the “nothing short of brilliant” (People).

Mrs. Everything returns with an unforgettable novel about friendship and forgiveness set during a disastrous wedding on picturesque Cape Cod.

Six years after the fight that ended their friendship, Daphne Berg is shocked when Drue Cavanaugh walks back into her life, looking as lovely and successful as ever, with a massive favor to ask. Daphne hasn’t spoken one word to Drue in all this time —she doesn’t even hate-follow her ex-best friend on social media—so when Drue asks if she will be her maid-of-honor at the society wedding of the summer, Daphne is rightfully speechless.

Drue was always the one who had everything —except the ability to hold onto friends. Meanwhile, Daphne’s no longer the same self-effacing sidekick she was back in high school. She’s built a life that she loves, including a growing career as a plus-size Instagram influencer. Letting glamorous, seductive Drue back into her life is risky, but it comes with an invitation to spend a weekend in a waterfront Cape Cod mansion. When Drue begs and pleads and dangles the prospect of cute single guys, Daphne finds herself powerless as ever to resist her friend’s siren song.

A sparkling novel about the complexities of female relationships, the pitfalls of living out loud and online, and the resilience of the human heart, Big Summer is a witty, moving story about family, friendship, and figuring out what matters most.

  • (4/5)
    A book of today's world with good themes to think. Social media, appearances, secrets, friendship.
  • (1/5)
    This book dragged on and I felt very immature. It was difficult to get through. The end was not worth the time spent.
  • (5/5)
    I really.loved this book I think it is a great read that kept me entertained
  • (2/5)
    Any other narrator. “Manhadden.” She ruined it for me, ?
  • (1/5)
    The narrator ruins this book. The way she says ‘cotton’ and ‘capsule’ is grating my last nerve.
  • (4/5)
    Mean Girls meets Cape Cod. I like the level of detail the author uses when describing what the characters see and feel.
  • (5/5)
    I worked straight through this book on a big project I had to finish. Entertaining, enlightening through sometimes subtle sometimes obvious and big subjects. Offering different points of view and experience in lives. Thank you and enjoy!
  • (4/5)
    I thought it had some good exploration and themes. Pretty standard story line but had some nice layers. Think it was a great way to portray the power of influence, money, and looks. Some trigger warning for eating disorder behaviors and trauma experiences if those are challenging for some readers.
  • (1/5)
    I hated this. So boring and so uninteresting how it ended. Wish I didn’t read it.
  • (4/5)
    Easy light hearted read. Good message about friends and what you see isn't always the real thing.
  • (4/5)
    I have a good idea of what to expect when I pick up a Jennifer Weiner book, and as I read this one I felt like I still knew. But then...
    But then it took an interesting little turn. I won't say too much because I enjoyed the little surprise it gave me. Let's just say it was a timely book - one addressing body image, the effects of social media, the eternal meanness of teen girls and the effects that linger long after we've left our teen years behind, and lessons about what's important in life - that those who seem to have the most sometimes have the emptiest lives. I listened to much of this one and the narration was very good on the audio version. I very much enjoyed Big Summer - it was sweet and sad and funny and surprising.
    My thanks to Netgalley and Atria Books for providing a copy for an unbiased review.

    Full of useless details, poor/unbelievable motivations and white people who feel sorry for themselves. Initial storyline had potential and the reviews were good so I pressed onwards. There was no climax and a random and disappointing resolution. Don't bother.

    Enjoyed this book. Great message for all to think about.
  • (5/5)
    It kept you wanting to keep reading. To see what was next.
  • (4/5)
    More entertaining than the average beach read. If you are looking for soMerging light but not too silly this book is for you.
  • (5/5)
    This book isn't the best for this author but it has a good catching storyline that turns into a murder mystery. You have some likeable characters. The author tries to bring forward the feelings of being overweight in the 1990's as if it were today where the world is stuck on people not being fat. Sad though you're never sure was Daphne truly fat as described or just overweight. Daphne puts on a bikini and jumps in a hot tub with a man she is interested in. What truly fat woman wears a bikini? Then you have her friend Drew who hurt her many times as well as others. Drew has a list of enemies she has made and now she is getting married and wants Daphne in her wedding. Then now you have a murder mystery with the game of "who dun it". I enjoyed the book even though it wasn't her best, especially after following "Mrs Everything". I still recommend this book as it is a good read.

    Wonderful. Another incredible romp of words written my a masterful storyteller.
  • (3/5)
    It was a good story. The main character is a relatable influence for this generation, but it seemed the author was all over the place. Not sticking with one genre, it seemed to be trying to hard to be something different.
  • (4/5)
    Perfect summer read. Easy reading with romance and suspense too
  • (5/5)
    It had it all; relevant topics, lovable/relatable characters, sinister/realistic villains; love and mystery. Perfect summer read!
  • (4/5)
    Compulsively readable and a wild, unexpected ride. Jen Weiner continues to be a masterful storyteller in an oft under-appreciated genre. Big Summer is a perfect summer read!
  • (5/5)
    Nice & easy read..but with a twist! 5 stars for sure.
  • (5/5)
    Love Danielle's voice! Hope they can make this book into a miniseries on Hulu or Netflix. ?
  • (4/5)

    This would have been a 4 star read for sure except the narration was AWFUL! So many mispronounced words. Such a shame. Great story but ai suggest reading in print.

    I was half driven to madness by the narrator reading this book who pronounced every “t” sound with a “d”. For example, instead of button she pronounced it buddon.

    The reader needs to enunciate better. She reminded me of someone from Oklahoma. The book is a beach read, not great but not terrible. The writing is generally on the lighter side with a murder mystery component towards the second half of the book.

    Perfect summer read. Quick read, and just what I hoped to experience on my deck, in the sun, iced tea in hand.
