Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner is a vibrant and poignant novel about the power of friendship. Daphne, a plus-sized Instagram model, has made great strides in boosting her self-confidence after a life of insecurity. She's built an online presence that she loves. But when her ex-best friend from high school, Drue Cavanaugh, walks back into her life asking Daphne to stand as her maid-of-honor, Daphne is rightfully speechless.

Letting Drue back into her life is risky, but the invitation does come with an excuse to stay at a waterfront mansion on Cape Cod—the perfect backdrop for Daphne's digital content. After begs and pleads from Drue, Daphne ultimately accepts, embarking on a summer getaway she will never be able to forget—for better or for worse.
