Some brief overview of book

From Lisa Tucker, the critically acclaimed author of Once Upon a Day and The Song Reader, comes an extraordinary novel about the way we live now the choices we make and the decisions we let life make for us. Matthew and Amelia were once in love and planning to raise a family together, but a decade later, they have become professional enemies. To Amelia, who has dedicated her life to medical ethics, Matthews job as a high-powered pharmaceutical executive has turned him into a heartless person who doesnt care about anything but money.

Now theyre kept in balance only by Matthews best and oldest friend, Ben, a rising science superstar and Amelias new boyfriend. That balance begins to crumble one night when, coming home to his upscale Philadelphia loft, Matthew finds himself on a desolate bridge face-to-face with a boy screaming for help. Homeless for most of his life, ten-year-old Danny is as streetwise as he is world-weary, and his desperation to save his three-year-old sister means he will do whatever it takes to get Matthews help.

What follows is an escalating game of one-upmanship between Matthew, Amelia, and Danny, as all three players struggle to defend what is most important to them and are ultimately forced to reconsider what they truly want. Dazzlingly written with a riveting story that will resonate with readers everywhere, Lisa Tuckers The Cure for Modern Life is a smart, humorous, big-hearted novel about what it means in the twenty-first century to be responsible, to care about other people, and to do the right thing.
