From the Publisher:
The smash-hit debut novel for every woman who has ever had a complicated love-hate friendship.
 
Rachel White is the consummate good girl. A hard-working attorney at a large Manhattan law firm and a diligent maid of honor to her charmed best friend Darcy, Rachel has always played by all the rules. Since grade school, she has watched Darcy shine, quietly accepting the sidekick role in their lopsided friendship. But that suddenly changes the night of her thirtieth birthday when Rachel finally confesses her feelings to Darcy's fiance, and is both horrified and thrilled to discover that he feels the same way. As the wedding date draws near, events spiral out of control, and Rachel knows she must make a choice between her heart and conscience. In so doing, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren't always neat, and sometimes you have to risk everything to be true to yourself.
Annotation:
Good-girl New York attorney Rachel has her world turned upside down when, at the end of a drunken 30th birthday bash, she sleeps with her college friend Dex--who is also her best-friend's fiancé. She's shocked at what she's done, and even more shocked when her feelings for Dex continue to grow. Emily Giffin's debut novel became a bestselling splash on its release in 2005, and marked Giffin as one of the standout stars in the overcrowded chick-lit genre. What sets SOMETHING BORROWED above the rest is Giffin's pitch-perfect blend of high melodrama with wonderfully three-dimensional characters, and complicated, morally-tricky solutions to crises of the heart.
Author Bio
Emily Giffin
Bestselling author Emily Giffin, who has been called a "modern-day Jane Austen," writes about friendship and family--and the complexities sometimes inherent in those connections. She told one journalist, "That's what life is all about. You have what you do [to earn money], but life is really the sum of all your relationships." Giffin, the daughter of a Sears executive and a librarian, was born in Baltimore, Maryland, but when she was a teen, her family moved to Naperville, Illinois, which she often refers to as her hometown. She studied history and literature at Wake Forest University, graduating with a bachelor's degree in 1994. Although she had long harbored dreams of becoming a writer, she felt some pressure to pursue a more conventional path and enrolled at the University of Virginia School of Law. In 1997 she passed the bar exam and moved to New York City to work at a large firm. She had not, however, totally given up her dream of writing, and in her spare time she penned a young-adult novel. Although it was rejected by several publishers upon its completion, she persevered. In 2001, after she had finished paying off her student loans, she quit her job and moved to London to write full-time. (She was booked on one of the first international flights to leave the U.S. after the terrorist attacks of 9/11.) In 2004 her debut novel, SOMETHING BORROWED, was published and quickly landed on the bestseller lists. In 2011 the book, about two young women who become involved with the same man, was made into a big-budget movie starring Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin. Several of her subsequent bestsellers have also been optioned by Hollywood. In addition to her writing prowess, Giffin is known for her fashion sense and sociable personality, and she is often featured in the style pages of the newspaper, as well as in the book section.
