Last week I was excited to see that Jennifer Weiner is a judge for the 2011 Tournament of Books, but now I have even bigger news. Weiner’s ninth book will come out on July 12 and be called Then Came You.
The novel is about a Princeton senior, Jules, who is on a full scholarship—and who needs cash to help her dad. She donates her eggs to a woman (India) who wants to have a late-in-life baby with her older husband. Annie (also stapped for cash) decides to be the surrogate. But then India’s husband dies and names his daughter as the guardian of the unborn baby.
Weiner has tackled everything from cheating politicians to the relationship of sisters to body image. I know her readers will be eager to read this story of motherhood, parental rights, family.
