Best Fiction 2016 ó Goodreads Choice AwardsSix responsible adults. Three cute kids. One small dog. Itís just a normal weekend. What could possibly go wrong?
Sam and Clementine have a wonderful, albeit, busy life: they have two little girls, Sam has just started a new dream job, and Clementine, a cellist, is busy preparing for the audition of a lifetime. If thereís anything they can count on, itís each other.
Clementine and Erika are each otherís oldest friends. A single look between them can convey an entire conversation. But theirs is a complicated relationship, so when Erika mentions a last minute invitation to a barbecue with her neighbors, Tiffany and Vid, Clementine and Sam donít hesitate.

She shows how guilt can expose the fault lines in the most seemingly strong relationships, how what we donít say can be more powerful than what we do, and how sometimes it is the most innocent of moments that can do the greatest harm.
