Product Details


“Lively [and] intelligent.”People

“The perfect . . . read for anyone who craves a smart story with a happy ending.”Oprah Daily

“It’ll hit you right in the feelings. Beck, will you please write a sequel?”HelloGiggles

“Whip-smart and perfectly capturing that delicate balance between your younger and adult selves, Dorey-Stein’s book will have you—gasp!—craving a reunion with your high school pals.”E! Online

“Sharp, irreverent, and compulsively readable—about how the best stuff in life is always what you didn’t plan.”—Lauren Weisberger, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Wears Prada and Where the Grass Is Green and the Girls Are Pretty

“Beck Dorey-Stein’s buoyant first novel is about finding out who you are and what matters most when everything tips sideways. It’s about rediscovering what love costs and finding your way back to the people who truly mean home. Funny and effervescent, hope and heart-filled, Rock the Boat is a breath of delicious and utterly fresh air.”—Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife and When the Stars Go Dark

“Brimming with wit and warmth, and peopled with a terrifically vibrant cast of characters, Rock the Boat is a delightful, whip-smart page-turner with an expansive heart.”—Claire Lombardo, author of The Most Fun We Ever Had
“What a cocktail of a book, topped with frothy, delicious wit. Beck Dorey-Stein nails the pathos and comedy of that slippery, sideways path to (sigh) adulthood. We can be awful to the people we feel safest with—those who love us and who have known us the longest—and Dorey-Stein captures that truth beautifully. I’m wildly grateful to have discovered a novelist who delivers this amount of sheer pleasure on a page.”—Judy Blundell, author of The High Season
Rock the Boat is the warm, wonderful escape I’ve been wishing for. A novel with gorgeous sentences and complex, kind characters set in a Garden State beach town—what more could you want? Mix yourself a Paloma and sink in. . . . Dorey-Stein’s debut novel is sheer delight.”—Amanda Eyre Ward, author of The Jetsetters
“A witty and endearing escape.”Booklist
“The author perfectly captures what it means to come home again and rediscover yourself in the process.”Kirkus Reviews
