Book Synopsis

A wickedly funny and sharply insightful novel about motherhood, female friendships, and the seductive allure of social media culture from the New York Times bestselling author of I Like You Just The Way I Am and Live Fast Die Hot.

Megan Chernoff is a talented but unemployed copywriter in an identity crisis after the birth of her second child. Seeking a fresh start, she and her family move to New York City, where she meets Daphne Cole-a gorgeous, stylish, well-known momfluencer. To Meg's surprise and delight, Daphne shows an inordinate amount of interest in Meg, showering her with compliments, attention, gifts, and all the perks that come with having a massive digital platform. Before she knows it, Meg finds herself immersed in Daphne's world-hobnobbing at exclusive power mama supper clubs, partaking in fancy wellness rituals, and reveling in the external validation she gets from her followers who grow daily by the thousands. Her friendship with Daphne, as well as the world she's been granted access to, is intoxicating and all-consuming. But is it authentic? When Meg realizes she's losing track of what matters most-her relationship with her sons and her husband-the deep cracks in Daphne's carefully curated façade are finally exposed. It's up to Meg to find her way back to her real life. But first she must determine what real even means.

Written with Jenny Mollen's signature razor sharp wit, City of Likes is a compulsively entertaining, unforgettable, and unsettling satire of modern life and relationships in a "pics or it didn't happen" world.

Review Quotes

"City of Likes has Jenny
Mollen's trademark lacerating humor and her ear for the outrageous, but this
novel brings a new level of pathos to her writing. It's a dark and engrossing
satire of motherhood, wealth, and friendship, laced with insight into the
danger of remaking ourselves in the social media age. To be gulped down in one
sitting." --Stephanie Danler, New York Times bestselling author of Stray
and Sweetbitter

"Jenny Mollen tackles the novel with
all the signature hilarity, insight, and page-turning candor that she brings to
her memoirs. A rollicking, joyful read that will make you want to put down the
phone--and pick up a book." --Rebecca Serle, New York Times bestselling author of One Italian Summer

"Jenny Mollen's City of Likes is a propulsive
story of motherhood, social media, and obsession--and the ways we can lose
ourselves in each. A delightful blend of social commentary, dark humor, and
good old-fashioned suspense that I devoured in two days." --Emily Henry, #1 New
York Times
bestselling author of People We Meet on Vacation

"City of Likes is a hilarious
take-down of what happens to people when they overdose on social media. It is
an escape from social media while still reading about social media; a fantastic
awakening to help clear your head and your addiction. And it's hilarious. The
greed, the lies, and the interminable desire to get more likes turns innocent
people into horrifying versions of themselves. I couldn't put it down." --Chelsea
Handler, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Life Will Be the
Death of Me

"First things first: I would pay good money to
sit at a bar with Jenny Mollen and listen to her hilarious observations
about the people around us. And I promise, once you read City of Likes,
you would, too. Part comedy of manners, part social satire, Mollen's debut
novel is a pitch-perfect rendering of our current Instagrammable age. It's
viciously funny, and packed full of heart." --Grant Ginder, author of Let's
Not Do That Again
and The People We Hate at the Wedding

this fun ride of a book, with sharp humor and a surprising depth of emotions.
Filled with delightful takes on how social media affects all of us, City of
is a must-read." --Jesse Q Sutanto, author of The Obsession
and Dial A for Aunties
