Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
Everybody Rise, the debut novel by Stephanie Clifford, is a familiar story of old money and an outsider wanting to fit in. It is a character study about a young woman whose desire to fit in devolves into a web of lies. The book proceeds as I expect and ends as I expect with no real surprises. It's an okay story but not the next Edith Wharton that it's being publicized as.
