Jennifer Weiner writes original short story for Redbook magazine

Jennifer Weiner, New York Times #1 best-selling author of In Her Shoes and Best Friends Forever, has written an original two-part short story that will appear this summer exclusively in Redbook magazine and on

Part I of the story, entitled The Half Life, runs in the magazine’s July issue. Weiner's fans will devour this juicy beach read: the tale of Piper DeWitt, married, working mother of a four-year-old daughter whose life turns chaotic when her husband leaves, just as she is taking off on a two-week business trip to Paris. As fate would have it, her flight is cancelled and Piper embarks instead on an unexpected adventure...

Readers and fans will have to wait until the August issue of Redbook to savor the second part of the story, a fictional tale sprinkled with current cultural and news references.

Readers can visit Red Hot Summer Read for the full story.

Jennifer Weiner’s new novel, Fly Away Home, published by Simon & Schuster, will hit bookstores July 13.
