In Her Shoes
By Jennifer Weiner
From Jennifer Weiner comes a story of two sisters with nothing in common but a love for shoes learn they are more alike than they thought possible.
Meet Rose Feller, a thirty-year-old high-powered attorney with a secret passion for romance novels. She has an exercise regime she's going to start next week, and she dreams of a man who will slide off her glasses, gaze into her eyes, and tell her she's beautiful. She also dreams of getting her fantastically screwed-up, semi-employed little sister to straighten up and fly right.
Meet Rose's sister, Maggie. Twenty-eight years old and drop-dead gorgeous. Although her big-screen stardom hasn't progressed past her left hip's appearance in a Will Smith video, Maggie dreams of fame and fortune -- and of getting her big sister on a skin-care regimen.
These two women, who claim to have nothing in common but a childhood tragedy, DNA, and the same size feet, are about to learn that they're more alike than they'd ever imagined. Along the way, they'll encounter a diverse cast of characters -- from a stepmother who's into recreational Botox to a disdainful pug with no name. They'll borrow shoes and clothes and boyfriends, and eventually make peace with their most intimate enemies -- each other.
In Her Shoes5By opksgalThis is the first book of Jennifer's I have read and I loved it! I couldn't put down once I got into it and am looking forward to more. What a wonderful story of two sisters and their grandmother, and beautifully written. I am a big Jodi Piccoult fan and now Jennifer Weiner!
Even better than the movie5By ICLondonI'd seen the movie so I knew how the story would turn out, yet this book was surprising in so many ways. The character of Maggie is much more rounded than was portrayed in the movie, as well as the grandmother. The sisters' love-hate relationship is drawn out wonderfully. I'll probably read this a second time--it was that good.
