read the first 10 pages and the last 10 pages and you get the whole story. The rest is just filler

Meet the Hellinger sisters of Hastings-on-Hudson:

• Imperia (Perri): the eldest and the perfect sister. A mother of three and owner of a business, Perri leads a stressful life.

• Olympia (Pia): the pretty sister. She is an artist and a single mother, and she envies all that Perri has.

• Augusta (Gus): the lesbian sister. She makes her own rules and could care less about what her sisters think of her.

As Perri faces her 40th birthday, she experiences a midlife crisis. What she doesn’t know is that her two younger sisters are grappling with crises of their own. Heck, even her father will join the Hellinger family clusterf*ck with his own crisis.

This novel really reminded me of The Weird Sisters. A lot. Not that there’s anything wrong with that!

As for the title, I’m not so sure about it. This novel is about three sisters, not just the pretty one.
