Where the Grass Is Green and the Girls Are Pretty
by Weisberger, Lauren

When her husband is arrested in an Ivy League admissions sting, jeopardizing everything she worked so hard for, Peyton, co-anchor of a hit morning show, soon discovers that this is not the worst of it as dark secrets in their posh world come to light.

Oh, the irony. After covering the college-admissions controversy as a top-rated anchor for the ANN news network, Peyton Marcus is shocked when a second round of exposed briberies engulfs her own family. Her husband Isaac stands accused of "buying" their daughter Max's admission to Princeton. It's a scandal with far-reaching tentacles. Peyton is placed on hiatus from the network, Princeton rescinds Max's acceptance, and Peyton's sister Skye loses funding for the girls-at-risk shelter she's developing. Perhaps worst of all is the fact that it was Peyton herself who wrote the check that unleashed all their misery, a detail she is advised to keep to herself. Peyton may Botox out the crows' feet and Peloton away the pounds, but it's going to take much more than mere cosmetics to undo the damage her deception has done to her family. Then there's subtly heroic Max, the unwitting victim who is far more mature than the adults. Weisberger (When Life Gives You Lululemons, 2018) never loses her trademark beach-read breeziness as she tackles weighty problems of familial trust with a pitch-perfect blend of humor and poignancy.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Best-selling Weisberger's newest scandal-oriented satire will appear on many summer TBR lists.
