Publisher's Summary

In her younger years, Jillian Lauren was a college dropout, a drug addict, and an international concubine in the Prince of Brunei's harem, an experience she immortalized in her best-selling memoir, Some Girls. In her 30s, Jillian's most radical act is learning the steadying power of love when she and her rock star husband adopt an Ethiopian child with special needs. After Jillian loses a close friend to drugs, she herself is saved by her fierce, bold love for her son as she fights to make him - and herself - feel safe and at home in the world.
Exploring complex ideas of identity and reinvention, Everything You Ever Wanted is a must-listen for everyone, especially every mother, who has ever hoped for a second act in life.

Critic Reviews

"Lauren's writing is brave and honest, and she calls out hypocrisy wherever she sees it and shines a light on the challenges faced during the adoption process." ( Kirkus)

Authentic

I set out to find a book on adoption that was authentic. I listened to sample after sample of audible books and this one stopped me short because the voice was so authentic. Hate her or love her, roll your eyes, tear up. Whatever your feelings you will have them for this book because Jillian is incredibly authentic. Excellent.
