2. The ‘Get over your ex because he broke up with you right before the summer’ novel
“Ladies’ Night” by Mary Kay Andrews, 2013
So you’re feeling vengeful? Your now ex-boyfriend did something terrible and you really wish you could get back at him? Live vicariously through Grace Stanton, the protagonist in Mary Kay Andrews’s novel “Ladies’ Night.” Stanton catches her husband having an affair with HER assistant and then drives his pricey sportscar into the family pool. Of course, Mr. Stanton isn’t happy: he kicks her out of their house, locks her out of the bank accounts, and even takes away access to the blog that she has used to make a name for herself in the media industry.
She is forced into “divorce therapy” per the courts and during her weekly meetings with three other divorcees, realizes there’s something funky going on with their “divorce coach.” The now unmarried woman initiate their own “Ladies’ Night” on Wednesdays and find closure in more than one way. This one will definitely help you get over the jerk. You don’t need him, anyway!
