WeinersMoreJennifer Weiner, whose novels Good in Bed and In Her Shoes earned her a place among womens book club aficionados everywhere, proves she still has the touch with Little Earthquakes, a tale of love, heartbreak, redemption, and friendship. Weiners novel centers around four new mothers, all of whom must learn to adjust their lives and their marriages to deal with the challenges of raising children.Ayinde is a beautiful, biracial newscaster who moves to Philadelphia after her husband, a star player for the NBA, is traded to the 76ers. She meets Becky, an overweight chef who plays the pregnant or just fat game every time she passes a mirror, and Kelly, an overachieving event planner who has her whole life mapped out down to the most minute details, after going into labor at a prenatal yoga class. The three become fast friends, and come to rely on each other for everything from burping techniques to intense emotional support. The group grows to include Lia, a semi-famous Hollywood starlet who leaves her husband and returns to Philly after a sudden tragedy.While Little Earthquakes may leave little to the imagination, and some of the characters are laughably stereotypical (the Mamas boy Jewish doctor and the cheating ball player, to name a few), it is Weiners gift for creating compelling characters with whom her readers can identify that make her such a successful storyteller. --Gisele Toueg
