We'd love to have you for our Friends Book Club. Join us on the third Tuesday of the month at 5:15 p.m for a great discussion. 

Aviva Grossman, an ambitious Congressional intern in Florida, has an affair with her boss who is admired, successful, very married and blogging about it. When the affair comes to light the Congressman doesn't take the fall, but Aviva becomes a late night talk show punchline; slut shamed, labeled as fat and ugly. Aviva sees no way out but to change her name and move to a remote town in Maine. Starting over as a wedding planner, she vows to be smarter about her life, and raise her daughter to be strong and confident. When, at the urging of others, she decides to run for public office herself, she discovers Google guarantees that the past is never, ever, truly past. And it's only a matter of time until her daughter, Ruby, must decide whether she can still respect her.
