Summary

Three female friends face midlife crises in a no-holds-barred exploration of sex, marriage, and the fragility of life.

Holly: Filled with regret for being a stay-at-home mom, she sheds 60 pounds and loses herself in the world of extramarital sex. Will it bring the fulfillment she is searching for?

Andrea: A single mom and avowed celibate, she watches her friend Holly’s meltdown with a mixture of concern and contempt. Holly is throwing away what Andrea has spent her whole life searching for—a committed relationship with a decent guy. So what if Andrea picks up Holly’s castaway husband?

Marissa: She has more than her fair share of challenges—a gay, rebellious teenage son, a terminally ill daughter, and a husband who buries himself in his work rather than face the facts.

As one woman’s marriage unravels, another’s rekindles. As one woman’s family comes apart at the seams, another’s reconfigures into something bigger and better. In this story of connections and disconnections, one woman’s up is another one’s down, and all of them will learn the meaning of friendship, betrayal, and forgiveness.

Unflinchingly honest, emotionally powerful, surprisingly erotic, Triangles is the ultimate pause-resister. Hopkins’s gorgeous, expertly honed poetic verse perfectly captures the inner lives of her characters. Sometimes it happens like that. Sometimes you just get lost....

Get lost in the world of Triangles, where the lives of three unforgettable women intersect, and where there are no easy answers.

Great Book, terrible narrator

The story was awesome, characters very layered and interesting but the woman who read the Andrea part nearly made me pull the plug on this.

One more success for the amazing Ellen Hopkins

I love this story. It's entertaining and intriguing. It has love, friendship deception and sex. Very great adult novel. I have never been disappointed by Ellen; she continues to deliver book after book.

I didn't mind the narration of the book. I was a little confused because I thought with 3 characters and 3 narrators they would have one for each character...That is not the case. Some of the impressions of the male characters and teenage parts were hard to read and very obnoxious but not bad enough to ruin the story.

If you are familiar with Ellen Hopkins or if you are looking for a REAL to life racey adult novel for women...give this a shot!! :)

predictable

it just seemed like I had read this book before. the plot line was pretty predictable from the outset. the narration was also not my favorite.

Great Read

I have been reading Ellen Hopkins since I was in the 7th grade. Did not expect the steamy parts but it was a great read!

Great Story, felt the characters

I really enjoyed the character Andrea although I didn't care for character Holly at all.
