Not quite at the level of her earlier works, Three Junes – which won the National Book Award – and The Whole World Over, Julia Glass’ new book, I See You Everywhere, would have benefited from keener editing. Glass tells the story of the Jardine sisters from both women’s point of views, and the back and forth gets both confusing and repetitive.

Still, Glass provides many clear-eyed insights and elegant lines to keep the reader entertained and engaged. As the Jardines struggle to understand themselves, each other and what it means to be a grown up, you can’t help rooting for their success.
