In Emily Giffin's latest novel, All We Ever Wanted, she touches on sexual assault and the privilege that comes with wealth. I have read every EG novel and this one wasn't my favorite of hers. In this "Poor Diverse Girl vs. Rich, White Boy" plot, we discover what the reader has already read in news stories. While the topic was thought provoking and relevant to the recent events, I expected more depth to the characters.
EG still writes in a manner that keeps me engaged throughout the entire story, there were a lot of issues going on in this book and some of the scenarios seemed too "extreme" or unrealistic in my opinion. I also did not care for the abrupt ending, which fell flat for me.
3 stars - entertaining, but forgettable.
