A brilliant novel from the author of Where'd You Go, Bernadette, about a day in the life of Eleanor Flood, forced to abandon her small ambitions and awake to a strange, new future.
Eleanor knows she's a mess. But today, she will tackle the little things. She will shower and get dressed. She will have her poetry and yoga lessons after dropping off her son, Timby. She won't swear. She will initiate sex with her husband, Joe. But before she can put her modest plan into action-life happens. Today, it turns out, is the day Timby has decided to fake sick to weasel his way into his mother's company. It's also the day Joe has chosen to tell his office-but not Eleanor-that he's on vacation. Just when it seems like things can't go more awry, an encounter with a former colleague produces a graphic memoir whose dramatic tale threatens to reveal a buried family secret.
TODAY WILL BE DIFFERENT is a hilarious, heart-filled story about reinvention, sisterhood, and how sometimes it takes facing up to our former selves to truly begin living.

I enjoyed her book "Where'd You Go Bernadette?", but this book did not equal it in style, or enjoyment. It was a rambling narrative that I was ready to quit by page 50. I persisted after there was a plot (if you want to call it a plot) twist. But a short while later it turned into the rambling nonsensical narrative again which I began to skim through just to see if I could get the answers to her dilemmas.
Difficult to read
Good story but very difficult to read. Felt disjointed with excessive chattiness for the sake of chattiness. Overly intellectual. References to things I could not relate to. (To which I could not relate!)
Today Will be Different
I found this book exciting at first, then it became hard to follow. There are several spots of good insight into a woman's mind. But, overall, nay.
