From the manicured Main Line of Philadelphia to the wild landscape of the Outer Cape, written with the signature wit, sharp observations, and mouthwatering food images of a classic Jennifer Weiner book, That Summer is a story about surviving our pasts and confronting our futures, perfect for fans of Taylor Jenkins Reid, Elin Hilderbrand, and Lianne Moriarty’s darker side. That Summer is a timely and deliciously twisty novel of intrigue, secrets, and the transformative power of female friendship. It asks questions about family, youth, and whether we have the power to transcend the experiences and influences of both. Who would we be without the familial forces that shaped us? What would you become without the drama and devastation of youth?

"Weiner follows up Big Summer with another emotionally charged drama, this one centered on a #MeToo reckoning. Weiner's writing is infused with evocative depictions... [and her] legions of fans will applaud this emotionally affecting and often surprisingstory." - Publishers Weekly

"Weiner's storytelling skill is such that she paints an uncompromising, complicated portrait of the insidious dangers of the patriarchy that is also a lot of fun to read. Weiner's latest is a summer banger with a ripped-from-the headlines plot, which is sure to garner lots of attention." - Booklist (starred)

“Jennifer Weiner's beachy books are basically a staple of the season, and this is no exception. This twisty novel about female friendship will make the hours fly by.”- Good Housekeeping

“Weiner’s ability to take a complex, painful situation and spin it into an engaging, thoughtful story about women’s inner lives is showcased throughout this novel. The beautiful beachside settings and aspirational lifestyles that women’s fiction readers gravitate toward are on full display, but the depth of the story is what shines. A likely summer blockbuster, this will have readers looking forward to the third volume in trilogy.” - Library Journal
