Commencement, by J. Courtney Sullivan
I don't think this is a great book, but it has stimulated some pretty interesting conversations in the past few weeks. Four young women, as different as they can be, become fast friends during their four years at Smith College. But can the friendships withstand life after graduation -- the real "commencement." The conversations typically focus on whether one of the various plot lines is plausible. The differences in answers are the interesting parts. Not a great reading either.
