    Jo and Bethie, sisters growing up in 1950s Detroit, are leading rather rigid lives. Jo is the troubled and angry older sister--the "different" one, while Bethie is the adored, perfect younger sister. Jo feels completely misunderstood by their mother, Sarah, but at least she has their f...

    Jennifer Weiner, you have truly outdone yourself with this one. Having read every single one of Weiner's books, it's safe to say that I was reallllllllllly waiting impatiently for her to release new fiction (it's been four years since Who Do You Love was released). Well, I can trul...

    "You make the wrong choices, you make mistakes, you disappear for a decade, you marry the wrong man. You get hurt. You lose sight of who you are, or who you want to be, and then you remember, and if you're lucky you have sisters or friends who remind you when you forget your best int...

    I enjoyed this book, which focused on two sisters. Jo, the older sister who?s great at sports and hates dresses, and Bethie, who is constantly dieting so she can be the lead in school musicals. From the fifties through the sixties up until modern times, their lives don?t go in the ...

    A high 4 stars! Wow! I really didn?t expect to like Mrs. Everything as much as I did. I?ve read some of Jennifer Weiner?s novels in the past, and I think of them as entertaining but generally quite light. This felt different. The story spanned four generations, covering what f...

    I started reading Mrs. Everything on 5/30/2019 and finished it on 6/3/2019. This book is an excellent read! A wholesome story from childhood to adult life, growing up and having children to finally having grandchildren; multi-generational. Bethie?s middle and high school seems so bri...

    Josette (Jo) and Elisabeth (Bethie) Kaufman were sisters who came of age in 1950s Detroit. Jo is a tomboy, more comfortable in old clothes and running around playing sports, while young Bethie was content with being the pretty, talented one, the center of attention. Not much changed as...

    Women had made progress ? Jo only had to look as far as the television set to see it ? but she wondered whether they would ever not try to have it all and do it all and do it all flawlessly. Would the day ever come when simply doing your best would be enough? I'm sure the quote...

    I received an advanced copy of this book as a Goodreads giveaway. I've read almost everything by this author, and even traveled 5 hours one-way to meet her at a talk/book-signing event. I was excited to read this, but I really did not like this book. The problem for me was that most of...

    4 Stars! Maybe I am different. Being different isn?t the worst thing. I feel like I went into this book with different expectations. I was expecting more of a light chick lit, per other books by Jennifer Weiner, however this book dives DEEP into women's issues whether you are...

    3 ? Mrs. Everything has just about every right or wrong anything that could happen to two sisters unfolding through 462 pages and it took me 8 days to get through all the drama. It was faster paced in the beginning, then overtaxed and bored me. If you came of age during the 60s ther...

    This was a gorgeous story about love, motherhood, sisters, and feminism. This story follows two sisters: Jo and Bethie, from their childhood in the 1950's through the rest of their lives. Jo is a struggling-to-be-accepted lesbian, wanna-be writer, and a strong activist when it comes to...

    "Please, God, or whoever's up there, please just give me enough time to make it right." For me, this was a 3 star read with a 5 star message, so I went with a 4 star rating. It's the type of book that you want to say so much about and also nothing at all. You want to say so much, be...
