Description:

For Willa Jacobs, seeing her best friend, Jane Weston, is like looking in a mirror on a really good day. Strangers assume they are sisters, a comparison Willa secretly enjoys. They share an apartment, clothing, and groceries, eking out rent with part-time jobs. Willa writes advertising copy, dreaming up inspirational messages for tea bags, while Jane cleans houses and writes poetry about it. Together Willa and Jane are a fortress of private jokes and shared opinions, with a friendship so close there's hardly room for anyone else. But when Ben, Willa's oldest friend, reappears and falls in love with Jane, Willa wonders: Can she let her two best friends find happiness with each other if it means leaving her behind?

Quotes:

...an overall good and quick read... sharp and witty writing...a great novel..., Vox Magazine

...clever and heartfelt... Fox nails this time period., The Washington Independent Review of Books

Amy Rubinate's narration brings Jane to life, capturing her goofy humor, awkwardness, and conflicted feelings. She also deftly voices the book's other characters; her rendition of Willa's on-again-off-again boyfriend, Declan, is a standout...Rubinate ably conveys the book's lovable protagonist and its themes of friendship, love, and confusion., Publishers Weekly

Fox has a talent for language and her wounded, witty Willa is a remarkably complex creation...Moving, artfully written..., Kirkus

Starred review. Pure Emily Griffin...hard emotional truths go down easily amid smart, rapid-fire wit. A pure if heartbreaking pleasure., Booklist
