All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin - Book Review

Time for a #60secondbookreview! And this week, we'll be discussing "All We Ever Wanted" by Emily Giffin.

"All We Ever Wanted" by Emily Giffin Book Review and Discussion

"All We Ever Wanted" by Emily Giffin has three different character perspectives and follows the aftermath of a high school party. At the party, a terrible photo is taken of a girl who is nearly naked, she is passed out, and a racist comment is added to the photo, as well. That photo is then shared with lots of friends through Snapchat, and of course, makes it through the entire high school and the community. 

"All We Ever Wanted" follows, Nina, the mother of the boy accused of taking the photo, Lyla, who's photo was taken, and Tom, her father. I flew through this book. It was an enjoyable read, but it also felt like it was too relaxing, because it was too casual and sweet considering the content. I just really wanted the author and the story to dig deeper - into the emotional lives of the characters, and the ramifications of photos and choices like this. And in parts it did, but it just could've done more. I can see readers loving this book, or at least devouring it as quickly as I did. Have you read "All We Ever Wanted" by Emily Giffin?
