I’m Fine and Neither Are You by: Camille Pagan @cnoepagan



Honesty is the best policy…except maybe when it comes to marriage in this brilliant novel about the high price of perfection from bestselling author Camille Pagán.

Wife. Mother. Breadwinner. Penelope Ruiz-Kar is doing it all—and barely keeping it together. Meanwhile, her best friend, Jenny Sweet, appears to be sailing through life. As close as the two women are, Jenny’s passionate marriage, pristine house, and ultra-polite child stand in stark contrast to Penelope’s underemployed husband, Sanjay, their unruly brood, and the daily grind she calls a career.

Then a shocking tragedy reveals that Jenny’s life is far from perfect. Reeling, Penelope vows to stop keeping the peace and finally deal with the issues in her relationship. So she and Sanjay agree to a radical proposal: both will write a list of changes they want each other to make—then commit to complete and total honesty.

What seems like a smart idea quickly spirals out of control, revealing new rifts and even deeper secrets. As Penelope stares down the possible implosion of her marriage, she must ask herself: When it comes to love, is honesty really the best policy?


A book for all Wives and/or Mothers.

I related to Penelope so many times in this book. It was so real! It made me laugh out loud for real. I felt her stress and frustration. I felt her insecurity and her fear. Penelope is the real woman with the friend we all have. The one who has everything and seems like everything comes easy for them. Until something horrible happens that makes Penelope realize nothing is quite what it seems and maybe things aren’t how she wants them to be. So she embarks on a project with her husband but will this cause more problems than it fixes?

I’m Fine And Neither Are You is a great, funny, and real read. Once I started it I was hooked! Camille Pagan has created a must read that makes you laugh and makes you think.
