Celebrity book clubs have released their picks for May.
Jenna Bush Hager picked All Adults Here, by Emma Straub.
The novel begins with a family matriarch witnessing an accident, causing her to re-examine her parenting as her three adult children — and her granddaughter — all encounter struggles of their own.
"Even though there are these issues that seem heavy, it ends with hope," Hager said in announcing the Read With Jenna selection.
"I think in a time when all we want is hope, it’s a beautiful book to reach for."
The novel follows a teenage girl's escape from an abusive marriage as she becomes the most sought-after henna artist in the city, learning the secrets of the wealthy while constantly concealing her own.
"Reading about Lakshmi’s journey ... captivated me from the first chapter to the final page," Witherspoon said on the Reese's Book Club website.
