Description

For fans of Laura Hankin and Jennifer Weiner, this fresh, clever, and complex debut "mom-com" explores the ups and downs of friendship and what happens when those you trust the most leave you high and dry.

A plucky protagonist who’s far from figuring it all out—but powers through with wit and determination—Fallon is a heroine millennial moms will instantly connect with.


Fallon Monroe, mother of one, self-help book junkie, and budding chocolatier, has always relied on her mom friends in the Chicago suburbs to get her through the trials of adulthood. So when her bestie Beatrice inexplicably starts ghosting her and takes all their mutual friends with her, Fallon’s left wondering how everything went so wrong. Pushing down a lifetime of insecurities, Fallon doubles down and decides to win them back. First, she hosts an epic Mexican fiesta that goes epically wrong. Then she joins a friendship app but discovers a disturbing secret about one of her new friends.

Just when she’s about to throw in the towel on the whole friendship mess, Fallon reads a recently unearthed letter she’d refused to deal with decades earlier—and reading it forces her to finally face the deep-seated fears she’d desperately tried to bury. Now, looking at her friendships through fresh eyes, she must decide between hanging on and letting go.

Fallon is an instantly likeable heroine—as vulnerable as she is determined—and she’ll have readers eagerly turning the pages as they join her on an emotional journey into the hopes and fears of adulthood.

I'm always in search of books that make me laugh out loud, but when a book can do that and also choke me up, I know I found something special. The Friendship Breakup was highly entertaining, hilarious and moving. Annie Cathryn achieved a perfect trifecta.

A super fun laugh out loud mom-com. As a mom of 2 daughters in their late teens, I thought this story was totally relatable. From the mom moments to the neighborhood friend cliques and everything in between including Fallon's quest for her own identity beyond being a mom, you will see versions of yourself in this book.

There were so many laugh out loud moments, but there were also emotional moments too, a perfect balance.

What an amazing debut!
