Meet Rose Feller. She's thirty years old and a high-powered attorney with a secret passion for romance novels. She dreams of a man who will slide off her glasses, gaze into her eyes, and tell her that she's beautiful. She also dreams of getting her fantastically screwed-up little sister to get her life together.

Meet Rose's sister, Maggie. Twenty-eight years old, drop-dead gorgeous and only occasionally employed. Although her dreams of big-screen stardom haven't progressed, Maggie dreams of fame and fortune -- and of getting her dowdy big sister to stick to a skin-care regime.

These two women with nothing in common but childhood tragedy, shared DNA, and the same size feet, are about to learn that their family is more different than they ever imagine, and that they're more alike, than they'd ever believe. In Her Shoes observes Rose and Maggie, the brain and the beauty, as they make journeys of discovery. Along the way, the'll encounter a wild cast of characters and they'll borrow shoes and clothes and boyfriends, and make peace with their most intimate enemies -- each other.

Funny and poignant, In Her Shoes will speak to anyone who has endured the bonds of big -- or little -- sisterhood, or longed for a life different from the one the world has dictated, and dreamed of trying something else on for size.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ali | 12/27/2013

    " I've heard so many rave reviews about Jennifer Weiner, so I think I got my hopes up before I read this book. It took a little while to get into, but after the first couple chapters it became a breezy, fun read. I was really intrigued by Maggie's character and think that she's even a bit inspriational, encouraging anyone who has been told they're dumb or stupid, encouraging them that they can do anything if they try, even survive Princeton. Other than this, the book didn't have much depth. It was pretty typical, but I've heard this isn't the best of Weiner's novels, so I won't let it discourage me from reading more of her. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole Stansell | 12/22/2013

    " One of those books I LOVED, and still haven't bothered to see the movie. Something tells me the actresses chosen will never live up to the standards of Jennifers writting. Another book that I can relate too... In a sense, beauty may be skin deep, but people are a lot deeper than they seem.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 JohnMichael | 12/12/2012

    " Unfortunately, I saw the film before reading the book, but both are enjoyable. This is so much more than "chick-lit", in that it really delves into the relationship between the two sisters, and also gives more insight into some of the other characters' perspectives. I highly recommend it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carrie (123*) | 11/11/2012

    " A good beach read...the ending was a little rushed..but it did a great job capturing how infuriating inconsiderate people are..and it succeeded in making me hate those characters.. "
