“When life gives you Lululemons” by Lauren Weisberger is part of “The Devil Wears Prada” series, but I had no trouble following it without having read any of the previous books. The book details the trials of living high-profile lives while trying to keep sanity and sense of humor.
2018 is not starting out on a good note for friends Emily, Karolina, and Miriam. Emily works in Hollywood as an image consultant to the stars; in reality, she cleans up after them and tries to keep their troubles secret. Recently, however, she has lost a few clients. Miriam moved to Greenwich to spend with her children, but being a stay-at-home mom in a wealthy town filled with joggers in Lululemon leggings with elaborate mesh cutouts that look both cool and extremely cold is more difficult than her stressful legal career. Karolina is an A-list former super model who now faces a different kind of scrutiny as the wife of a United States senator who plans to run for president.
The book follows each of the three as they support each other and navigate upscale suburbia fraught with drama, trauma, and social media. Their over-the-top suburban lives are filled with truths and lies simmering just below the dazzling surface, and nothing is exactly as it appears.
I received a copy of “When Life Gives You Lululemons” from Lauren Weisberger, Simon & Schuster, and NetGalley. It was light-hearted fun and moves quickly. It is an entertaining book, and be careful, you might just laugh right out loud as you read.
