In Philadelphia, good girl Kate is dumped by her fiancé the day she learns she is pregnant with his child. In New York City, beautiful stay-at-home mom Vanessa finds herself obsessively searching the Internet for news of an old flame. And in San Francisco, Dani, an aspiring writer who can't seem to put down a book—or a cocktail—long enough to open her laptop, has just been fired . . . again.

In an effort to regroup, Kate, Vanessa, and Dani retreat to the New Jersey beach town where they once spent their summers. Emboldened by the seductive cadences of the shore, the women begin to realize just how much their lives, and friendships, have been shaped by the choices they made one fateful night on the beach eight years earlier—and the secrets that now threaten to surface.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Beach Book Extraordinaire! Donohue’s three protagonists are irresistibly sympathetic as they try to unbury their true selves from the ruinous secrets of their shared past.”

    Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author of Summerland

  • All the Summer Girls is a beautifully wrought story about the tender yet resilient bonds of friendship and the damage of kept secrets. Meg Donohue writes with keen insight, prodding readers to re-examine their own past choices, while gracefully examining themes of family, friendship and forgiveness.”

    Karen White, New York Times bestselling author of Sea Change and On Folly Beach

  • “An intimate, heartfelt, beautiful exploration of friendship, family and the ties that bind and the secrets that destroy us. Read it first, pass it to your girlfriend later. She’ll be grateful.”

    Allison Winn Scotch, New York Times bestselling author of The Song Remains the Same and Time of My Life

  • All the Summer Girls is an honest and engaging look at the complicated and powerful bonds of female friendship. Donohue takes us on a weekend reunion full of secrets, resentment, and regret—in other words, once you start this book, you won’t be able to put it down!”

    Jennifer Close, New York Times bestselling author of Girls in White Dresses

  • “Meg Donohue paints a compassionate portrait of what it means to be adrift — in love, and in one’s own sense of self — with engaging heroines both flawed and utterly real.”

    Nichole Bernier, author of The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D.

  •  “Donohue sounds an irresistible call to spread a blanket on the nearest beach with three best friends who reunite on the Jersey Shore to commiserate, imbibe, and confess the dark secrets that have haunted them since college. Donohue gives the chick-lit buddy trope an appealing twist and a lot of depth, turning a familiar yarn of regret, trust, and loyalty into an elegant ode to late bloomers.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This novel is a sensitive, vibrant, and touching portrayal of childhood friends…Donohue beautifully captures how the shimmering promise of youth and the sobering realities of maturity must coalesce to create a fully realized, hopeful woman.”
