All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin - Book Review

"All We Ever Wanted" by Emily Giffin has three different character perspectives and follows the aftermath of a high school party. At the party, a terrible photo is taken of a girl who is nearly naked, she is passed out, and a racist comment is added to the photo, as well. That photo is then shared with lots of friends through Snapchat, and of course, makes it through the entire high school and the community. And so the book follows, Nina, the mother of the boy accused of taking the photo, Lyla, who's photo was taken, and Tom, her father. I flew through this book, like it was an enjoyable read, but it also felt like it was too relaxing, it was too casual and sweet considering the content. I just really wanted the author and the story to dig deeper - into the emotional lives of the characters, the ramifications of photos and choices like this. And in parts it did, but it just  could've done more. I can see reader's loving this book, or at least devouring it as quickly as I did. Have you read "All We Ever Wanted" by Emily Giffin?
