The Wife App by Carolyn Mackler

copy for review; all opinions are my own

The Wife App is Carolyn Mackler’s adult debut and it was a pretty enjoyable contemporary fiction novel.

Three friends are tired of women and moms being tasked with the majority of the work in a family- especially the mental load. So they create an app where Wives (who can be women, men, nonbinary) are paid to take over these type of tasks – like applying to a bunch of preschools for your kid! 🖍

It’s definitely an interesting idea! Sure, mostly women are probably still doing these tasks through the app but they’re the ones ultimately in charge and getting paid for it. 💰 Not a bad gig!

I enjoyed this one, and I thought it was nice getting all three POVs. Each woman is a single mom but in various stages, so it was cool to see how they manage and navigate their lives. And I love some good female friendships in books!
