Book Details Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In the riveting new novel from the #1 bestselling author of Something Borrowed and First Comes Love, three very different people must choose between their families and their most deeply held values. . . .

“An unpredictable page-turner that unfolds in the voices of three superbly distinct characters.”—The Atlanta Journal-Constitution 

“A gripping, thought-provoking journey.”—Jodi Picoult

Nina Browning is living the good life after marrying into Nashville’s elite. More recently, her husband made a fortune selling his tech business, and their adored son has been accepted to Princeton. 

Yet sometimes the middle-class small-town girl in Nina wonders if she’s strayed from the person she once was.

Tom Volpe is a single dad working multiple jobs while struggling to raise his headstrong daughter, Lyla. His road has been lonely, long, and hard, but he finally starts to relax after Lyla earns a scholarship to Windsor Academy, Nashville’s most prestigious private school.

Amid so much wealth and privilege, Lyla doesn’t always fit in—and her overprotective father doesn’t help—but in most ways, she’s a typical teenaged girl, happy and thriving.

Then, one photograph, snapped in a drunken moment at a party, changes everything. As the image spreads like wildfire, the Windsor community is instantly polarized, buzzing with controversy and assigning blame.

At the heart of the lies and scandal, Tom, Nina, and Lyla are forced together—all questioning their closest relationships, asking themselves who they really are, and searching for the courage to live a life of true meaning.

Advance praise for All We Ever Wanted

“Nina Browning has it all: the handsome husband, the Ivy-League-bound teenage son, and the big house in the Nashville suburbs. But with one unthinkable social media post from her beloved child, could it all fall apart? Dealing with issues of class, money, and race, All We Ever Wanted is the book everyone will be talking about.”PopSugar

“This complex and layered novel will give you all the feels.” Brit + Co

“This thought-provoking novel follows two Nashville families as they struggle with the fallout from a horrible incident. Their wealthy community quickly becomes divided, with people eager to assign blame and take sides as the families struggle with loyalty and staying true to their values. It's one of Giffin's most topical, gripping books yet.”Good Housekeeping

    Loved the characters and drama of this story. Well built and gritty, I could tell you I know people just like them. I only gave four stars because I thought the author portrayed the older characters extremely well, but the teens were a bit less concrete .
  • She does it again...

    According to the author, rich people are not nice and those who are not wealthy can make fun of them. Let’s think about who does more philanthropically. There is also a 16 year old who has intercourse and is referred to in the book as a wonderful girl. I am thinking the author is leaning too much toward socialism. I did not enjoy this book.

    This book is incredible. I randomly stumbled upon it when I was considering buy an iBook and it was SO worth it. It hits home to me in so many ways and I long to have a mother as good-hearted as nina browning.

    I couldn’t wait to read another of Emily Giffin’s books and I certainly was not disappointed. I couldn’t put the book down. She takes you right to the core of the characters and what they are feeling. This book touches on a topic that is so prevalent in today’s world. Truly a remarkable book and story you will not want to miss.
  • Amazing, as always

    Once again, Emily nails it and writes one more perfect book. The “worst” about a new book from Emily is that I get sooo happy and so sad at the same time, because I know I’ll finish reading in no time, and it’ll be over. “All We Ever Wanted” is a must read, not only for girls, but especially for any boy/man. I just wish it had at least double the pages. It definitely makes me hope for a sequel. Congratulations and THANK YOU, Emily Giffin!!! Keep up the amazing work presenting us with such amazing books, characters and stories.
