Overview

Plan B: A Novel by Jonathan Tropper

The heartwarming debut novel by the New York Times bestselling author of This is Where I Leave You and One Last Thing Before I Go.

Turning thirty was never supposed to be like this. Ten years ago, Ben, Lindsey, Chuck, Alison, and Jack graduated from New York University and went out into the world, fresh-faced and full of dreams for the future. But now Ben's getting a divorce; Lindsey's unemployed; Alison and Chuck seem stuck in ruts of their own making; and Jack is getting more publicity for his cocaine addiction than his multimillion-dollar Hollywood successes.

Suddenly, turning thirty-- past the age their parents were when they were born, older than every current star athlete or pop music sensation-- seems to be both more meaningful and less than they'd imagined ten years ago.

Plan B, Jonathan Tropper's wonderful debut novel, is about more than friendship, love, celebrity, addiction, kidnapping, or even turning thirty-- it's a heartfelt comic riff on what it means to be an adult against your will, to be single when you thought you'd have a family, to discover you are not, in fact, immortal, and to learn that Star Wars is as good a life lesson today as it was when you were six years old.

I'm only 20-years-old so I know I didn't understand the characters' feelings about their life as much as those past the 30-mark did, but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it.  It's funny, smart, and most importantly entertaining.  I tend to grow bored with books that don't involve murder or supernatural events, but this one kept me through the end.  Just ordered another book by Tropper, can't wait to read it.
