Review

2015 USA Best Book Awards: Fiction: Chick Lit/Women's Lit, Finalist
2016 International Book Awards: Chick Lilt/Women's Lit Winner
"The Balance Project is a Lean In-esque romp which begs that perenially pertinent question: Can women really have it all?”
Self magazine

The Balance Project is the perfect read if you’re escaping a hectic schedule and are in need of some work/life balance. Up-and-coming author Susie Schnall brings her popular Balance Project interview series to women's fiction to tell this inspiring and page-turning story. It's funny, smart, and thought-provoking."
―POPSUGAR

“...a fun, thought-provoking novel that features accomplished women struggling to juggle the many demands of their life.”
―Emily Giffin, author of The One & Only and Something Borrowed

“A must-read for any woman who’s struggled to find balance!”
―Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, authors of The Status of All Things and Your Perfect Life

“Occasionally funny and always focused, The Balance Project entertains while simultaneously provoking serious thought.”
Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Destined to become a book club favorite, Susie Orman Schnall’s The Balance Project is a clever, compassionate look at the modern woman's quest to juggle it all. Schnall's heartfelt―and, at times, hilarious―storytelling is just like real life, and had me rooting for Lucy from page one.”
―Kristyn Kusek Lewis, author of How Lucky You Are and Save Me

“Utterly compelling and impossible to put down, The Balance Project speaks volumes about how important it is for women at any stage of life to find realistic and meaningful balance.”
―Melissa Amster, Founder of Chick Lit Central

“A smart, refreshing, fast-paced read with twists and turns that will have you turning pages well past your bedtime. Schnall nails her portrayal of two heroines, in different stages of their lives, wrestling with the oft-debated question: Can women really have it all?”
―Emily Liebert, author of You Knew Me When and Those Secrets We Keep

“A fast-paced tale of a twentysomething desperately trying to balance her own life while, ironically, working for a woman known as America's Darling of Balance. If you liked The Devil Wears Prada, you'll enjoy this charming romp, which delivers with heart, depth, and a perfectly satisfying conclusion.”
―Kristin Harmel, bestselling author of The Sweetness of Forgetting and The Life Intended
