It's safe to say that Wifey is one of the most popular books of our time: Judy Blume managed to sell over 4 million (!) copies of this exceptional novel that's equally funny, moving, touching, thought-provoking and uplifting. The story follows a courageous woman who decides to stop being what every single person in the world expects her to be - a regular wifey - and embarks on an exciting journey towards fulfilling her fantasies and bringing her dreams to life.
Along the way, she discovers what it truly means to be free and turns into a completely different person, someone who can breathe freely and is not afraid to do whatever she wants. Her name is Sandy, and, even though she did everything in her power to be satisfied with the life of a regular housewife, she was bored out of her mind.
The woman felt like her life was slowly, but steadily turning into a swamp that she would never be able to get out from later on. True, Sandy could go to the club more often and find new friends there, just like her man has been telling her to do. Or, she could practice more, play golf and/or do her hair. But that's all just a part of the routine, nothing special there. What Sandy has been craving for is something far more insane and life-changing.
Was it hard to let go of her "normal" life and to go out there into the unknown without a plan? Of course, it was! But we all need to remember that it never seems to be a perfect time to do something big with our lives, which means the right time to act is now. The bottom line is - if you love exceptional novels that inspire us all to be better and are a big fan of classic American humor, Wifey should have a permanent place in your library. This one's a keeper!
