A New York Times Bestselling Author
Ambitious congressional intern Aviva Grossman makes the mistake of having an affair with her boss and blogging about it. When it comes to light, the beloved congressman doesn’t take the fall. Aviva does, and becomes a late-night talk show punch line. This smart, funny, and moving novel is about the double standards alive and well in every aspect of life for women.

“This book will not only thoroughly entertain everyone who reads it; it is the most immaculate takedown of slut-shaming in literature or anywhere else. Cheers, and gratitude to the author.”— Kirkus Reviews (starred)
“Splendid . . . A witty, strongly drawn group of female voices tells Aviva’s story . . . [Zevin] has created a fun and frank tale. Her vibrant and playful writing, and the fully realized characters taking turns as narrator, bring the story a zestful energy, even while exploring dark themes of secrecy and betrayal. Zevin perfectly captures the realities of the current political climate and the consequences of youthful indiscretions in an era when the Internet never forgets.”— Booklist
“Presenting a sharp send-up of our culture’s obsession with scandal and blame, this novel pulls at the seams of misogyny from all angles . . . Likely to be a popular book club pick.”— Library Journal
