I could not put down All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin, by the pool on vacation. Giffin's character development and multi-perspective narration are stunning. I thought that All We Ever Wanted was insightful regarding race, gender, and class. Book centers on an exceedingly privileged white boy, his mother who is quite a dynamic character, an economically underprivileged young girl of color, and her father who works diligently as a manual laborer to support his daughter. Giffin writes from the white mom's perspective, the young girl's perspective, and her father's perspective. "All We Ever Wanted" likely refers to the white woman but might refer to any of them. I was satisfied with the ending. arguably Emily Giffin's best!
