"Frankel's debut is a wonderful literary treat that offers a fresh twist on the modern family, one that relies on the bonds of women." --Library Journal (starred)
"It’s been a long time since I’ve been as charmed by a book as I was by this beautifully written, highly literate story of friendship, parenthood, and every other kind of love you can imagine. I was captivated by Janey, a narrator whose wit and generous spirit caused me to forget that she wasn’t a flesh and blood person—and to wish that she were.”
--Marisa de los Santos, author of Love Walked In and Belong to Me
“Immensely likable, playful and literary, this is a novel full of love."
--Cathleen Schine, author of The Three Weissmanns of Westport
“Once in a great while, a book is so beautifully written that when you close it, all you can do is sit quietly and hold it to your chest. Laurie Frankel's The Atlas of Love is that book.”
--Sandra Kring, author of The Book of Bright Ideas and Thank You For All Things
