T no amount of activated charcoal can fixFilled with humor and shocking twists Happy and You Know It is a brilliant take on motherhood exposing it as yet another way for society to pass judgment on women while also exploring the baffling magnetism of curated social media lives that are designed to make us feel unworthy But ultimately this dazzling novel celebrates the unlikely bonds that form and the power that can be unlocked when a group of very different women is thrown together when each is at her most vulnerab. This is a WONDERFUL novel For the first part of it I couldn t figure out why I was turning the pages too fast to take notes which I usually do when there are this many characters involved There s Claire who was unceremoniously dumped by her band for another singer who was curvier and sexier which would have been rough on its own but what s worse is that shortly after they made the change they catapulted to fame and have the number one song in the country while she s taking on unglamorous jobs like being the cheery singer for the playgroup of babies of six excessively wealthy New York stay at home moms who spend an extravagant amount of money on things like health supplements The novel is told from some of the moms too I had sympathy for some of them than others Missing having their day jobs while maintaining their skinny physiues and pretending there are no challenges with being a mom even to a child with a behavior disorder because of course they are perfect in every way The novel gets to be even of twist and turns page turner with a supremely satisfying endingHighly recommend Thanks so much to Netgalley for the opportunity to review this novel which RELEASES MAY 19 2020
