Overview

Growing up, Sabrina Jacobs could only dream her life would be this good. She has a successful career, a famous sexy husband, two children, a house in an affluent Westchester suburb and a shoe collection worthy of a magazine spread.
Too bad it's all a façade.
It has been almost a year since her husband admitted he had an affair with a younger and bouncier coworker. Follow Sabrina as she tries to rein in her out-of-control life by kicking her husband out on his rear, chucking her career and even firing her too-cute-for-the-job nanny.
But how will she survive life as a single stay-at-home mom in the land of wine and play dates, designer kids' parties and Botox lunches? Hmm... maybe the hunky young French teacher, who has been flirting shamelessly with Sabrina, is just what she needs to take her mind off her problems. Not if her husband has something to say about it. Will Sabrina be able to forgive and still be true to herself? Find out in Bounce.

Terry McMillan watch out! K. M. Jackson's Bounce is a witty, clear-eyed, raucous and romantic look at Sabrina Jacobs and the world she inhabits. The first person voice ends wonderful intimacy and immediacy to this tale of a suburban wife, mother and professional financial analyst who has it all. At least she thinks she does. When the cracks in her perfect life begin to widen and split, she has to question every decision she has made - and the big ones she needs to make now. Ensconced in a well-to-do suburban neighborhood, she's confronted with women seeking physical perfection, children's birthday parties replete with $10,000 entertainments, husbands with roving eyes and children's expectations. Bree is a tough lady, though, and when she plunges into her upturned world, determined to not just survive, but thrive, as she deals with her marital woes, makes new friends, and discovers that sometimes your dreams don't come true, sometimes a happily ever after takes a heck of a lot of work, and sometimes discovering new dreams is the key to happiness. A wonderful, fresh, funny, insightful voice and a marvelously entertaining book. This author is dynamite.

Wonderful story of two people through trials and tribulations realizing the value of their relationship. Although i enjoyed the story and the characters, about mid way the book, i was geting annoyed with Sabrinia and her woe is me attitude. Initially i was upst with SEan due to his infidelity, howver, after Sabrina's pty party, i was feeling sorry for Sean and thought he should just walk away. In any event, I was delighted with their happily ever after ending.

I laughed – I cried – I loved it! Sabrina Jacobs is Everywoman -- well, every woman I know who is married with children. I connected so immediately with Sabrina that sometimes I wondered if Jackson had peeked into my own head. Although Bounce is set in a very upscale suburb of New York City, any woman of any  ethnic or social background can identify with her:  The nagging sense that even though you are doing all the ‘right’ things, things somehow just aren’t…right;  Recognizing absurdity of many of our modern social conventions and yet somehow still feeling compelled to excel at them; trying so hard to balance your life, and still having things spin out of control.  These are the problems that every woman faces.  Kudos to Jackson for a story that sets them all in perspective – no matter how perfect your neighbor’s life looks from the outside, up close and personal it’s a whole different story. Bounce just became my very favorite married-with-children story!
