What Alice Forgot | by Liane Moriarty

What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
(Amy Einhorn Books/Putnam, 2011, 432 pages)

This is the third book I’ve read by this author and she has mom culture down to a “T”! It is not as strong as Big Little Lies but it’s still full of the plots twists that make her books hard to put down. It will make you think about what you would miss out on if you forgot the last 10 years of your life and like Alice there are probably some things you would rather forget!

Alice Love is twenty-nine, crazy about her husband, and pregnant with her first child.  So imagine Alice’s surprise when she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! She HATES the gym) and is whisked off to the hospital where she discovers the honeymoon is truly over — she’s getting divorced, she has three kids, and she’s actually 39 years old. Alice must reconstruct the events of a lost decade, and find out whether it’s possible to reconstruct her life at the same time. She has to figure out why her sister hardly talks to her, and how is it that she’s become one of those super skinny moms with really expensive clothes. Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over…” – Amazon.com
