What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
A “cheerfully engaging” (Kirkus) novel for anyone who’s ever asked herself, “How did I get here?”
Alice Love is twenty-nine, crazy about her husband, and pregnant with her first child.
So imagine Alice’s surprise when she comes to on the floor of a gym
(a gym! She HATES the gym) and is whisked off to the hospital where she
discovers the honeymoon is truly over—she’s getting divorced, , she has
three kids, and she’s actually 39 years old. Alice must reconstruct the
events of a lost decade, and find out whether it’s possible to
reconstruct her life at the same time. She has to figure out why her
sister hardly talks to her, and how is it that she’s become one of those
super skinny moms with really expensive clothes. Ultimately, Alice must
discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s
possible to start over…
Liane Moriarty is the author of two other novels, Three Wishes and The Last Anniversary,
both of which have been published around the world and translated into
seven languages. She is also the author of the Nicola Berry series for
children. Moriarty lives in Sydney, Australia, with her husband and two
small, noisy children.
