All We Ever Wanted Was Everything
All We Ever Wanted Was Everything | Janelle Brown
2 posts | 9 read | 1 reading | 4 to read
On the day Paul Miller s pharmaceutical company goes public, he informs his wife, Janice, that their marriage is over and that the new fortune is his alone. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, the Miller s older daughter, Margaret, has been dumped by her hot actor boyfriend and is failing at her job, kind of spectacularly. Sliding toward bankruptcy, Margaret bails and heads for home, where her confused and lonesome teenage sister, Lizzie, is struggling with problems of her own: She s become the school slut. From behind the walls of their Georgian colonial bunker, the Miller women wage battle with divorce lawyers, debt collectors, drug-dealing pool boys, evangelical neighbors, and country club ladies and in the process all illusions and artifice fall away, forcing them to reckon with something far scarier and more consequential: their true selves."
