Summary, Etc. "Alice Sullivan, a high-achieving architect and mom of two, is used to being in control. Until life rips the blueprints right out of her hands. While she's always strived for a picture perfect life, Alice's foundation is rocked when she discovers her daughter is failing reading at school, and worse, her son is a bully, having humiliated a classmate on stage in front of 500 of their peers. Alice feels desperate to make things right, but when she turns to her friends for support, she discovers her own social standing has eroded now that she's one of "those moms" who can't control her kids. As she tries to figure out where she went wrong, her curated life unravels further. She faces setbacks with a key client, her husband travels incessantly for business, and her mother decides to unload a family secret she's kept for more than thirty years--one that shifts Alice's entire perception of herself. Despite her attempts to have things under control, Alice can no longer rely on an inventive mudroom design and keeping her clients happy to make her feel better. She's been trying to beat the competition, measuring her success and happiness by everyone else's standards. Alice finds help, comfort, and strength from unexpected places, once she realizes that no one's got it all together, and that maybe that's okay"-- Provided by publisher.
