Coming of Age: New Fiction from Jennifer Weiner and Elin Hilderbrand

Simon and Schuster (l), Little Brown (r)

It’s fun to imagine the real lives of “coming-of-age" book authors – how much do they draw from their own experiences? Today on The Weekly Reader, book critic Marion Winik shares two new novels about family, faith, and growing up. We review Jennifer Weiner's Mrs. Everything and Elin Hilderbrand's Summer of '69.
