The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer
This is a really long book. Beginning when Jules is 15 at a summer camp, following her life and the lives of her best friends from camp - Ethan, Ash, and Jonah, the book ends when they are all in their early 50s. Life happens. And love and joy and sorrow and trials and death.
It is an interesting book.
I am not really sure if it was worth taking the time to read it because it seemed really long.
Jules deals a lot with her jealousy of Ethan and Ash's success and wealth. However, they have their own problems. I think by the end she finally learned that she should just be satisfied with what she had instead of wishing she had more.
