The Jetsetters

A 2020 REESE WITHERSPOON HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB PICK




A family reunited on a holiday of a lifetime . . . what could possibly go wrong?

When Charlotte Perkins enters the 'Become a Jetsetter' contest, she dreams of reuniting her estranged children: Lee, an almost-famous actress; Cord, a handsome Manhattan venture capitalist; and Regan, a harried mother who has never got over Charlotte's gift of a Weight Watchers voucher for her birthday.

But when she wins that once in a lifetime trip, all doesn't exactly go to plan . . .

As long-buried secrets are revealed, and lovers new and old appear, can these four lost adults find their way back to each other?

And more importantly, can they do it without killing each other?

A hilarious and deliciously sun-scented novel about the courage it takes to reveal our true selves and the pleasures and perils of family.

Praise for The Jetsetters

If you're packing for spring break, be sure to include a copy!

Reese Witherspoon

At the heart of [Amanda] Ward's comic story of family estrangement and long-buried trauma is the adage 'There's no such thing as a free ride'-but her novel's ultimate destination is both surprising and transporting

The New York Times Book Review

Witty, insightful, and full of heart . . . Defined by a long-ago tragedy and long-held grudges, grievances, and resentments, the Perkins clan has plenty of reasons to keep secrets from one another-secrets that inevitably, over the course of their forced family fun vacay, spill out. . . . The perfect novel to read in a pool lounger as you sip a colorful cocktail. Mediterranean sunset optional

Christina Baker Kline, bestselling author of ORPHAN TRAIN

What a joy! Treat yourself to The Jetsetters and let Amanda Eyre Ward's wit, poignancy, and insight take you away. You deserve it. . . . The funniest novel that ever broke your heart

Andrew Sean Greer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of LESS

Heartwarming, funny, and poignant, The Jetsetters kept me up late turning the pages. . . . Compulsively readable

Jean Kwok, bestselling author of SEARCHING FOR SYLVIE LEE
