Not her best, but still an entertaining read.
When former Mean Girl Drue comes back into Daphne Berg's life bearing apologies and begging Daphne to be the Maid of Honor at her upcoming wedding, Daphne yields, partly as a gesture of foregiveness and partly because explosure at this major social event will enhance her on-line career as a social influencer.
Halfway through, Weiner switches genres, and the book becomes a murder mystery heavily dependent on inconsistent characterization and a crushing number of coincidences.
I thought it was a chik lit book half way through it became a mystery. It was interesting and entertaining but with the title and cover I was hoping for something different.
Big Summer was a very surprising and gripping read!
It started out as what seemed to be a typical Chick Lit, beachy read. But things were NOT what they seemed and it quickly turned into a murder mystery!
It was comprised of likable and diverse characters and weaved together some of the following:
- Stereotypical high school mean girls
- Body positivity at any size
- Family betrayal and long-hidden secrets
- Dangers of social media to mental well-being and happiness
To sum it up, I was just incredibly impressed with a near perfect execution of such diversity in plot, characters, and the issues addressed!
