Regretting her limits as a stay-at-home mom when she enters midlife, Holly loses weight and immerses herself in extramarital sex, while celibate single mom Andrea considers pursuing Holly's cast-off husband and Marissa, the mother of a terminally ill daughter, witnesses the unraveling of her family. By the best-selling author of Perfect. 150,000 first printing.

Simon and Schuster
In this first adult novel by the New York Times bestselling author of the unforgettable Crank trilogy, three female friends face midlife crisis in a no holds-barred exploration of sex, marriage, and the fragility of life.

Ellen Hopkins has made her mark as the wildly popular author of several novels for young adults—every one of them a New York Times bestseller, and every one a hard-hitting exploration of tough-to-tackle topics. Now, in Triangles, Hopkins brings her storytelling mastery and fearlessness to take on the challenges of adult dramas.

In this emotionally powerful novel, three women face the age-old midlife question: If I’m halfway to death, is this all I’ve got to show for it? Holly, filled with regret for being a stay-at-home mom, sheds sixty pounds and loses herself in the world of extramarital sex. Andrea, a single mom and avowed celibate, watches her friend Holly’s meltdown with a mixture of concern and contempt. Holly is throwing away what Andrea has spent her whole life searching for—a committed relationship with a decent guy. So what if Andrea picks up Holly’s castaway husband? Then there’s Marissa. She has more than her fair share of challenges—a gay teenage son, a terminally ill daughter, and a husband who buries himself in his work rather than face the facts. As one woman’s marriage unravels, another one’s rekindles. As one woman’s family comes apart at the seams, another’s is reconfigured into something bigger and better. In this story of connections and disconnections, one woman’s up is another one’s down, and all three of them will learn the meaning of friendship, betrayal, and forgiveness before it is through.

I thought this was going to be a book about the complexity of women's relationships. It had the potential to be good but it really amounted to nothing more than childish characters doing childish things. Although this book had very adult themes, the writing felt very teen oriented to me. Lots of shock value. On a more positive note, the audio production was fairly well done.
