    This was a great book! I started to read it and I didn't want to put it down. The story is told by three characters points of view. I usually don't like when books are written this way, one chapter for each character. I really enjoyed it in this story and feel is was so well written. ...

    What a book! Could not put it down. This book was a quick and easy read but dealt with thought provoking and timely topics. Loved the alternating points of view telling the story from the perspectives of parents and teenager. The end seemed a bit rushed and I wanted more that?s why I...

    I am a bit of an outlier in my opinion when it comes to Emily Giffin and her books. They really are just "okay" reads. However, I will say that All We Ever Wanted is much more meatier than the chick lit than she is usually known to write. When Nina 's teenage son makes a devastating c...

    Excellent book!! Five Amazing Stars!!!!!!!!! First I'd like to start off by saying I love Emily Giffin's books. This in no way shapes my review, I take each book individually. Having said that, she not only nails it with this book, she knocks it way out of the park!!!! As parents,...

    This was a great book! I started to read it and I didn't want to put it down. The story is told by three characters points of view. I usually don't like when books are written this way, one chapter for each character. I really enjoyed it in this story and feel is was so well written. ...

    All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin reminded me a little bit of Rochelle Weinstein's Somebody's Daughter. I feel like the same type of storyline was presented here... between teenagers and serious issues that are presented in our society. Nina one of our main characters finds out tha...

    I am a bit of an outlier in my opinion when it comes to Emily Giffin and her books. They really are just "okay" reads. However, I will say that All We Ever Wanted is much more meatier than the chick lit than she is usually known to write. When Nina 's teenage son makes a devastating c...

    Excellent book!! Five Amazing Stars!!!!!!!!! First I'd like to start off by saying I love Emily Giffin's books. This in no way shapes my review, I take each book individually. Having said that, she not only nails it with this book, she knocks it way out of the park!!!! As parents,...

    Hard to put this one down! Sometimes our children are not what we had hoped and are leading different lives than the ones presented to their parents. This book deals with some tough topics: privacy in the new world of social media and how families are affected, standing by your belief ...

    "You should always side with your kid. Always." "Without regard to his actions?" I asked. "No matter what?" Here's two things I know for certain: 1) I would never condone abusive discriminatory behaviour, and 2) I would do everything within my power to protect my sons. So what happ...

    This is a truly powerful, wonderful novel. It?s been many years since I?ve read an Emily Giffin novel, but I enjoyed those books and was excited to read this one. My previous experience with her work did not prepare me for the complex, layered, serious manner of this excellent book...

    This is not literature for birds (chick lit) or women?s fiction. This is everyone?s fiction. Because this kind of story should be directed towards every adult, regardless of gender, color, class, etc. This is not a love story. It is both heart-breaking and heart-mending. You ...

    All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin is an emotional tale that is very fitting in today?s social media obsessed age. One drunken night leads to a risque photo being passed around of a young teenage girl leading to the characters all dealing with the situation from their own points of v...

    This is my first Emily Giffin book..... ..........A PrimeTime-Page-Turning-Plausible-novel that most likely attracts women readers. If I saw more reviews from men than by woman, I?d be surprised- but also very interested in their thoughts. There seems to be a trend on ?issue?...

    4.5 Stars rounded up! I love Emily Giffin and I get so excited when I hear the annoucement that a new book of her's is coming out. She seems to take really relevant experiences and apply them to a fictional story so that we can all somehow relate. Nina and Kirk are a wealthy coup...

    As a parent of a 12 year old son that seems to be growing quicker than I'd like him to be I found this book to be quite terrifying. We all want to believe our children are thoughtful, empathetic, and responsible beings but that's not always the case and sometimes our children are going...

    This was an engaging and entertaining novel. I saw it listed on the GOODREADS CHOICE AWARDS Best Fiction list and picked it up. I didn't even read the description and went into it blind. Lyla attends a private school on a scholarship, her world is upturned when a compromising photog...

    Emily Griffin did not disappoint with All We Ever Wanted. She takes us on a powerful journey through marriage, motherhood, friendship, teen life, racism, and the negative effect of social media. This book definitely deals with some heavy topics that are going on in today's world right ...

    WOW!!!!! I could not put this book down. It was so intense and relevant today. The story details the life of the privileged families who are held to a different set of rules nor held accountable for their actions. A mistake is revealed that is life changing, for a young girl who c...

    Nina Browning lives a very comfortable life being married to Kirk, one of Nashville?s elite. Their son, Finch is on his way to Princeton having done exceptionally well at Windsor Academy, the city?s prestigious private school. Tom Volpe is a single father and a skilled carpenter. H...

    Nina and Kirk Browning and their teenage son, Finch, live a good life, especially since Kirk sold his company and the family has experienced a great deal of wealth. Nina and Kirk are attending a fundraiser when they hear whispering that Finch has been involved in an incident with anoth...

    This was a great book! I started to read it and I didn't want to put it down. The story is told by three characters points of view. I usually don't like when books are written this way, one chapter for each character. I really enjoyed it in this story and feel is was so well written. ...

    What a book! Could not put it down. This book was a quick and easy read but dealt with thought provoking and timely topics. Loved the alternating points of view telling the story from the perspectives of parents and teenager. The end seemed a bit rushed and I wanted more that?s why I...

    All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin reminded me a little bit of Rochelle Weinstein's Somebody's Daughter. I feel like the same type of storyline was presented here... between teenagers and serious issues that are presented in our society. Nina one of our main characters finds out tha...
