Description
A brilliant novel from the author of Where'd You Go, Bernadette, about a day in the life of Eleanor Flood, forced to abandon her small ambitions and awake to a strange, new future.Eleanor knows she's a mess. But today, she will tackle the little things. She will shower and get dressed. She will have her poetry and yoga lessons after dropping off her son, Timby. She won't swear. She will initiate sex with her husband, Joe. But before she can put her modest plan into action-life happens. Today, it turns out, is the day Timby has decided to fake sick to weasel his way into his mother's company. It's also the day Joe has chosen to tell his office-but not Eleanor-that he's on vacation. Just when it seems like things can't go more awry, an encounter with a former colleague produces a graphic memoir whose dramatic tale threatens to reveal a buried family secret. TODAY WILL BE DIFFERENT is a hilarious, heart-filled story about reinvention, sisterhood, and how sometimes it takes facing up to our former selves to truly begin living.

Description
Eleanor Flood is a mess. She's erratic, scattered, and constantly getting things wrong (dates, names, times). She resorts to calling everything "amazing" because the right word always seems to be just out of reach. But all that's about to change, because today, she vows, will be different. Today she will be her best self. Eleanor sets the bar at a comfortable level: low. She will put some effort into her appearance. She will play a board game with her eight-year-old son, Timby. She won't swear. She will initiate sex with her hand-surgeon-to-the-stars husband, Joe. But then life happens, and Eleanor's modest plan gets derailed. Today, it turns out, is the day Timby has decided to play sick to weasel his way into his mother's company. It's also the day Eleanor discovers that Joe's been skipping out on work and telling his receptionist--and not his wife--that he's on vacation. When an unexpected encounter with a spurned former colleague produces a relic from the past that threatens to expose a long-buried family secret, Eleanor comes completely undone.
