In this first adult novel by the New York Times bestselling author of the unforgettable Crank trilogy, three female friends face midlife crisis in a no holds-barred exploration of sex, marriage, and the fragility of life.

Ellen Hopkins has made her mark as the wildly popular author of several novels for young adults—every one of them a New York Times bestseller, and every one a hard-hitting exploration of tough-to-tackle topics. Now, in Triangles, Hopkins brings her storytelling mastery and fearlessness to take on the challenges of adult dramas.

In this emotionally powerful novel, three women face the age-old midlife question: If I’m halfway to death, is this all I’ve got to show for it? Holly, filled with regret for being a stay-at-home mom, sheds sixty pounds and loses herself in the world of extramarital sex. Andrea, a single mom and avowed celibate, watches her friend Holly’s meltdown with a mixture of concern and contempt. Holly is throwing away what Andrea has spent her whole life searching for—a committed relationship with a decent guy. So what if Andrea picks up Holly’s castaway husband? Then there’s Marissa. She has more than her fair share of challenges—a gay teenage son, a terminally ill daughter, and a husband who buries himself in his work rather than face the facts. As one woman’s marriage unravels, another one’s rekindles. As one woman’s family comes apart at the seams, another’s is reconfigured into something bigger and better. In this story of connections and disconnections, one woman’s up is another one’s down, and all three of them will learn the meaning of friendship, betrayal, and forgiveness before it is through.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Felicia | 2/12/2014

    " It was amazing. Sometimes I find it hard being 19, to put myself in the shoes of someone in their mid-forties but I quite enjoyed the book. It was interesting having read all the previous books by Ellen Hopkins to see her go into a more erotic novel, but I enjoyed it a lot and I cant wait to read her books to come. "

    " Wow. This book was written entirely in poems, and I found that I had to work too hard to piece the story together. I read as a relaxing escape, not as homework. "
