Becoming Nicole: The Transformation of an American Family by Amy Ellis Nutt

This is How it Always Is by Laurie Frankel


This Is How It Always Is is a novel about revelations, transformations, fairy tales, and family. And it’s about the ways this is how it always is: Change is always hard and miraculous and hard again, parenting is always a leap into the unknown with crossed fingers and full hearts, children grow but not always according to plan. And families with secrets don’t get to keep them forever.
