I couldn't put it down, and I didn’t want to either’ -- Emily Henry, No. 1 New York Times bestselling author of HAPPY PLACE Reading a Kiley Reid novel is like watching a docuseries designed exactly for you.

It’s perfect -- Liz Moore, author of LONG BRIGHT RIVER Wonderfully immersive, propulsive, and beautifully paced.
