Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“How to make a novel about the shaky geometry of romance feel fresh? Lauren Fox, in her second novel, succeeds admirably, partly because she places her twenty-something characters against a grim backdrop of economic uncertainty and the not-quite-healed wounds of parental failures.” Boston Globe
“The hard emotional truths go down easily amid the smart, rapid-fire wit. A pure if heartbreaking pleasure.” Booklist (starred review)
“A poignant comedy…Fox makes you care about Willa and everyone else in Friends Like Us long after you’ve finished.” Washington Post
“A strikingly wise exploration of the bonds people forge and break. Fox delivers on plot, but it’s her insight, emotion, and eye for universal truths that make Friends Like Us memorable.” People
“A perfect…page-turner for cozy winter nights.” Glamour
“A funny, astute examination of the fragility of friendship.” Entertainment Weekly
