“Who the hell knows if anything will ever be fine?”
Lauren is a devoted mom to her twin daughters, and she tries to be a good wife. But lately, things have felt different with her husband. Sophie is a busy single mom, trying to get everything done while trying to be okay with hiding a big piece of who she is. Madeline is trying to figure out what she wants to do. She has different worries than most, but money can’t buy happiness.
This was very cute. I loved the women supporting women aspect. And how open, accepting, and genuine these characters were. The idea of this kind of app is both fascinating and weird.
I liked our three main characters. They were all different, but their similarities were what made them great. I love that they each had to overcome something within themselves to grow and unleash their inner strength and peace.
This was an easy read with a nice pace. The topics covered were relevant, and the mix of humor was great.
