Product Details


One of Cosmopolitan’s 20 Books to Read This Summer

The Break-Up Book Club is a glorious celebration of female friendships and empowerment. Once again, Wendy Wax, the queen of women’s fiction, hits a homerun. She shows us what it means to be let down, only to be lifted up, higher and more determined than ever.… A heartfelt lesson in the beauty of book clubs, where people of every age, race, and social status unite behind their love of words, and ultimately, each other. Every town should have a Break-Up Book Club!”
Lori Nelson Spielman, New York Times bestselling author 

“Witty and warm, The Break-Up Book Club is a delightful journey through the changing lives of four strong, fascinating, independent women. I want—no, NEED—to join this book club!”
Karen Hawkins, New York Times bestselling author of The Book Charmer
“A joyous tribute to female friendship and book clubs everywhere, Wendy Wax weaves the lives of diverse women (and a few charming men) together in an unputdownable story. Just try not to fall in love with every single character in The Break-Up Book Club.”
Amy E. Reichert, author of The Kindred Spirits Supper Club

The Break-Up Book Club is everything we’ve come to expect from Wendy Wax—a heartwarming, witty and compulsively readable tale that makes you feel like you’re spending time with your best girlfriends. I loved it!”
Colleen Oakley, Author of You Were There Too

 “An ensemble novel intertwining the stories of several women experiencing the highs and lows of modern love, Wax’s latest novel was built for book clubs. Sure to delight romcom fiends and fans of Emily Giffin’s and Holly Chamberlin’s books, it champions inner strength and the power of a fresh perspective. Highlighting the challenges of different seasons of life, Wax charts the journeys of a trusted group of strangers-turned-friends.”

“Wendy Wax knows what readers crave most – to surround themselves with good friends and great books. The Break-Up Book Club gives us a diverse group of southern women challenged by life, but with the strength of new friendships, they learn to stand strong, leap faithfully, and fight back. After reading this one, you’ll be either looking for a book club or thanking your lucky stars you belong to one.”
Liz Talley, Author of The Wedding War
