Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of May 2021: With a title like That Summer and a cover resplendent with a beachy scene, readers may expect a light and fluffy summer read in Weiner’s latest. That Summer is not that book, and in this reader’s eyes, that is a very good thing. Daisy Shoemaker, devoted wife, mother, and keeper of house, starts receiving emails intended for a stranger named Diana with a very similar email address. While clearing up the confusion, Daisy and Diana arrange to meet up and they quickly become friends. Daisy is lonely: her husband, Hal, works long hours, treats her like a kept pet, and her 15-year old daughter is sullen and rebellious. But Diana is keeping a secret from her past, an event that caused her charmed life to spin out of control, and Daisy is an unknowing party in Diana’s revenge plan. That Summer is a powerful and insightful book about the #metoo movement, friendship and family, and the role of men and women. Even after years of bestsellers, Weiner’s ability to keep her books fresh and relevant speaks to her talent as a writer. —Sarah Gelman, Amazon Book Review
Editors' pick: That Summer is a powerful and insightful book about the #MeToo movement, friendship and family, and the role of men and women."—Sarah Gelman, Amazon Editor

Review

“Your ideal beach read, full of secrets and complicated female friendships.” (Cosmopolitan)

“The summer wouldn't be complete without an aptly-titled novel from Jennifer Weiner.” (Marie Claire)

“Weiner, the undisputed boss of the beach read, is back with another stunner.” (New York Times)

“Weiner has made a major literary career out of writing engrossing popular novels that take women seriously. One of Weiner’s signature strengths as a writer is her ability to realistically depict how people change in body and soul…Weiner writes incisively, yet with restraint… That Summer is a compelling, nuanced novel about the long, terrible aftermath of sexual assault and the things that can be stolen from women that can never be fully restored. But, because it’s a Jennifer Weiner novel, it’s no polemic. It’s empowering in its own way. Weiner seems to steadfastly believe in the saving grace of humor, the ability of time to open up possibilities and the strength of female friendship. Me, too." (Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post)

"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))

"Fun and flirty." (PopSugar)

“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)

"A page-turner. Reflective of the #MeToo movement and the importance of accountability, it’s a thought-provoking and timely book." (Seattle Book Review)

"Like many of Weiner’s works, the novel explores themes of femininity and motherhood, but it’s the book’s tackling of the #MeToo movement through more than one complicit character that sets it apart." (Shondaland)

“This one will solve all your ‘I can’t get into any book right now’ problems.” (TheSkimm)

"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 surprising story." (Publishers Weekly)

"Fans will enjoy references to the murder plot of Weiner's previous novel, Big Summer (2020), and sprinklings of Weiner's signature descriptions of food and cooking." (Kirkus Reviews)

“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)
