Something Borrowed

Emily Giffin


The smash-hit debut novel for every woman who has ever had a complicated love-hate friendship.

Rachel White is the consummate good girl. A hard-working attorney at a large Manhattan law firm and a diligent maid of honor to her charmed best friend Darcy, Rachel has always played by all the rules. Since grade school, she has watched Darcy shine, quietly accepting the sidekick role in their lopsided friendship. But that suddenly changes the night of her thirtieth birthday when Rachel finally confesses her feelings to Darcy's fiance, and is both horrified and thrilled to discover that he feels the same way. As the wedding date draws near, events spiral out of control, and Rachel knows she must make a choice between her heart and conscience. In so doing, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren't always neat, and sometimes you have to risk everything to be true to yourself.

Editorial Reviews

"A modern-day Jane Austen." -Vanity Fair"What kind of self-described 'nice girl' would sleep with her best friend's fiancé? One who's seriously flawed, like this delightful debut novel's heroine, but also surprisingly winning and real." -Glamour"This page-turning, heartbreakingly honest debut.deftly depicts the hopeful hearts behind an unsympathetic situation." -Entertainment Weekly"Both hilarious and thoughtfully written, resisting the frequent tendency of first-time novelists to make their characters and situations a little too black-and-white. You may never think of friendships - their duties, the oblique dances of power and their give-and-take - quite the same way again." -Seattle Times"A thrill to read. " -Washington Post"Sharply observed and beautifully etched." -Newark Star-Ledger"Dead-on dialogue, real-life complexity and genuine warmth." -Seattle Post-Intelligencer"Forget 'Bergdorf Blondes.' The [book] you want in your bag this year is Emily Giffin's SOMETHING BORROWED. It's smarter, less arch and more believable. The characters are authentic. Best of all, SOMETHING BORROWED captures what it's like to be 30 and single in the city, when your life pretty much revolves around friendships and love and their attendant complexities." -San Francisco Chronicle
