Laurie Frankel: The Atlas of Love

We're kicking off 2011 with an incredible novel about friendship, love, grad school and parenthood. Our SheKnows Book Club January-February selection is The Atlas of Love by Laurie Frankel.

Laurie Frankel: The Atlas of Love

"Beautifully written, a highly literate story of friendship, parenthood, and every other kind of love you can imagine," said Marisa de los Santos, author of Love Walked In.

The Atlas of Love by Laurie Frankel

When Jill becomes both pregnant and single at the end of one spring semester, she and her two closest friends plunge into an experiment in tri-parenting, tri-schooling, and tri-habitating as grad students in Seattle. Naturally, everything goes wrong, but in ways no one sees coming.

Janey Duncan narrates the adventure of this modern family with hilarity and wisdom and shows how three lives are forever changed by (un)cooperative parenting, literature, and a tiny baby named Atlas who upends and uplifts their entire world. In this sparkling and wise debut novel, Frankel's unforgettable heroines prove that home is simply where the love is.
