A funny and poignant story about coming of age after you’ve already grown up. Sloane Sawyer had it all planned—she and her best friend Stephie would graduate from high school, get out of Tippett Valley and have dazzling complementary careers. She would also have a loving husband, the requisite two kids and a house with a white picket fence. As she turns thirty, Sloane has a boring job and a boss who ignores her. She has no children, doesn’t own a house, has gained fifteen pounds and questions how her video-game-playing husband could possibly love her. And Stephie, working in a bar and living in Tippett Valley with the disreputable Randy, is increasingly distant. Even as Sloane clings to her dream, she comes to realize that she and Stephie won’t be able to move forward until they finally confront an old tragedy. Reminiscent of the work of Meg Cabot, Jennifer Weiner and Ann Brashares, Picket Fences takes a fresh look at issues facing millennials as they navigate identity and relationships in an era of social media, the gig economy and sky-high expectations.
