Summary, etc.:
Six years after the fight that ended their friendship, Daphne is shocked when Drue walks back into her life, looking as lovely and successful as ever, with a massive favor to ask. Daphne hasn't spoken one word to Drue in all this time, she doesn't even hate-follow her ex-best friend on social media, so when Drue asks if she will be her maid-of-honor at the society wedding of the summer, Daphne is rightfully speechless. Drue was always the one who had everything, except the ability to hold onto friends. Meanwhile, Daphne's no longer the same self-effacing sidekick she was back in high school. She's built a life that she loves, including a growing career as a plus-size Instagram influencer. Letting glamorous, seductive Drue back into her life is risky, but it comes with an invitation to spend a weekend in a waterfront Cape Cod mansion. When Drue begs and pleads and dangles the prospect of cute single guys, Daphne finds herself powerless as ever to resist her friend's siren song.

    If the narrator sounds immediately familiar, here's why: Macdonald played Willowdean Dickson in the popular Netflix adaptation of Julie Murphy's bestselling Dumplin'. Making her narrator debut in Weiner's plus-size empowering latest, Macdonald is so convincing that once listeners have begun the story, stopping before the end isn't really an option. Once upon a time, Daphne and Drue were best—albeit hardly equal—friends. Fat (her word), trusting, scholarship-student Daphne could never say no to wealthy, gorgeous, mean-girl-manipulative Drue . . . until Daphne does, finally claiming her voice in a taking-back-her-agency-video that goes viral. Seven years after severing their toxic relationship, Daphne's content: she's a body-positivity Instagram influencer, she nannies, and she sells her crafty art. And then Drue reappears, as dazzling as ever, asking begging Daphne to be her maid-of-honor (Drue has no other friends) in what promises to be the social-media-takeover wedding of the year. Surprise! Murder and mayhem ensue. Frothy entertainment notwithstanding, insidious white privilege is impossible to ignore here. Three notable characters of color populate the pale cast, each more cringe-inducing than the last: not-friend Darshi is disdained and discarded; nerdy Aditya isn't fit to be seen in public; the villain has to be the child of model-minority immigrants whose life Drue so glibly stole. Despite Macdonald's due applause, Weiner's unintended racism ultimately feels irresponsible. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
