everything's relativeSummary:

When their mother dies, sisters Jules, Brooke, and Lexi breathe a collective sigh of relief. Their days of being hurt and controlled by Juliana Alexander are over.

It turns out, Juliana isn’t about to let a little detail like death stop her.

The three estranged sisters—one control freak, one peacekeeper and one red hot mess—are shocked to discover that their mother was hiding a massive fortune, one that promises to completely transform all of their lives. But in classic Juliana fashion, there’s a catch. Three of them, to be exact.

Now Jules, Brooke, and Lexi find themselves forced to rely on one another in order to become the women their mother wanted them to be. With millions of dollars on the line and as many obstacles in the way, the sisters embark on a hilarious journey of self-discovery, forgiveness, and the real meaning of wealth.


The best word I could come up with for this novel was entertaining. It was entertaining from page one and kept me happily reading throughout. The sisters are all so different yet easily likeable (okay, it took me a little bit to get on Lexi’s side) but it was a lot of fun watching them grow together and grow closer as they took on their mother’s challenge. The ending I was a little unsure about. The twist I did see coming, but it did actually kind of bum me out. Clever, very well-written, and filled with life lessons, Everything’s Relative, was insanely entertaining to read.

4.5 stars
