Review of ALL WE EVER WANTED by Emily Griffin

This book was amazing!  I really enjoyed the family dynamics of the two families represented.  Tom is a single father raising his teen daughter Lyla in a middle-class environment.  Nina and Kirk, on the other hand, are very wealthy and are raising their son Finch in a home of privilege and expectation of more privilege.  When the book begins, Finch has just been accepted to Princeton, so we know that he is intelligent.  But his other character traits are not very admirable.  I will most remember Nina’s reaction to what Finch has done and what Kirk is doing to try to cover up for him.  It is important to remember that date rape is real, and the portrayal in this novel is very realistic.  The book is fast-paced and very entertaining.  I loved the way the viewpoint switched between the main characters, Tom, Nina and Lyla.  I wanted to keep reading to find out what was really going on since there was so much deception .  I was quickly drawn into the tale of a young girl and the parallel story o a married woman who has lost control of her life.  This is such an excellent read that all avid readers should read it and are guaranteed to enjoy it!
