After the fictionalized version of her life became an overnight bestseller, the loveable, smart-tongued, big-hearted Cannie Shapiro dropped out of the public eye and settled into a wonderfully predictable life -- knitting in the front row of her daughter Joy's drama rehearsals, volunteering at the library, and taking over-forty yoga classes with her best friend Samantha. She's happily married to the tall, charming diet doctor Peter Krushelevansky, and as preparations for Joy's bat mitzvah begin, everything seems right in Cannie's world.
Then Peter surprises his wife by saying he wants to have a baby. And Joy finds the novel Cannie wrote years before, a discovery that sends both mother and daughter on journeys, romantic and personal, to places they never imagined they'd go.
Touchingly funny and tender, with Weiner's whip-smart dialogue and sharp observations of modern life, Certain Girls is an unforgettable story of love, loss, and a daughter's search for the truth about her family.
This is #2 in Cannie Shaprio Series.
