1. The J.A.P. ChroniclesSynopsisAnyone who's ever wondered what happened to the girls in the exclusive cliques of adolescence will delight in The J.A.P. Chronicles. With the wry wit and keen eye and ear of a latter-day Jane Austen, Isabel Rose (herself a scion of a prominent New York family) provides the ultimate insider's look at the glamorous upper-crust society that even Carrie Bradshaw would give her Jimmy Choos to join.

But Laura is apparently flourishing as a Los Angeles superagent, and Beth has found happiness by throwing over her dull but successful fiance for her wedding photographer. Even Wendy, golden girl turned Short Hills housewife, has managed to skirt around old regrets and long-stifled urgesuntil seeing an old acquaintance stirs them up again.
