"They've chosen the one thing that will make our family life impossible. It's genius really, when you think about it. It's the perfect sabotage."
"Francesca Segal is precise and funny, and The Awkward Age is brimming with keen observations of the highest order-the clever, the sore, and the sublime." -Emma Straub, New York Times­-bestselling author of Modern Lovers and The Vacationers

Julia Alden has fallen deeply, unexpectedly in love. American obstetrician James is everything she didn't know she wanted--if only her teenage daughter, Gwen, didn't hate him so much. Uniting two households is never easy, but when Gwen turns for comfort to James's seventeen-year-old son, Nathan, the consequences will test her mother's loyalty and threaten all their fragile new happiness.

This is a moving and powerful novel about the modern family: about starting over; about love, guilt, and generosity; about building something beautiful amid the mess and complexity of what came before. It is a story about standing by the ones we love, even while they make mistakes. We would give anything to make our children happy. But how much should they ask?
