Today is not the day to mess with Clover Hendry.
Clover hasn’t said “No” a day in her life. Until today. Normally a woman who tips her hairdresser even when the cut is hideous, is endlessly patient with her horrendous mother, and says yes every time her boss asks her to work late—today, things are going to be very different. Because Clover is taking the day off. Today, she’s going to do and say whatever she likes, even if it means her whole life unravels.
What made Clover change her ways? Why doesn’t she care anymore? There’s more to this day than meets the eye.
Clover Hendry's Day Off is a joyful, raging, galvanizing story about putting life on pause, pleasing yourself, and getting your own back. Whatever it takes. Because when Clover stops caring, she can start living.

I've often wondered what it would be like to just totally go off character and say what is on my mind instead of "people pleasing". Clover Hendry did just that and it was delightful. It was a middle aged woman's attempt to have a "Ferris Bueller" day off and I loved it. There were so many parts of the story that I could relate to. As I followed Clover's journey through her fun antics and moments of self discovery, I found myself both laughing and crying, sometimes simultaneously. I thoroughly enjoyed this book . Thank you Netgalley r sending this ARC for review consideration.
This book really had me laughing out loud. I really enjoyed this book and I will definitely be buying myself a copy of this book when it is published in January. And you better believe my library will purchase this book for circulation!
Excellent read !!! A real page turner you will want to keep turning the page to see what happens next. Highly recommend it.
Thank you NetGalley and G. P. Putnam’s Sons for the opportunity to review an advance copy of this novel. As a fan of Beth Morrey’s light and whimsical writing style, this novel did not disappoint! I enjoyed this modern day rewrite of the classic movie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Clover Hendry, a middle-aged executive, mother, and wife, had a tumultuous and quite exciting day off. I found myself cheering, grimacing and laughing out loud at Clover’s shenanigans. The characters were stereotypical but fun, and Clover reminded me to stop and think, as well as the importance of standing up for oneself and not always putting others first. I highly recommend this lighthearted novel and can’t wait to read more of Beth Morrey’s books!
