Celebrity book clubs have released their picks for April.
The novel explores the aftermath of a violent attack on a teenage girl in Texas in the 1970s and is told through various characters’ perspectives.
"Elizabeth really developed these characters that I felt like I knew," Hager said in announcing the Read With Jenna selection.
"I found myself missing them when the story was over. The women are complicated. They are a lot of things at once."
The activist and speaker’s memoir focuses on how one can find joy and peace by focusing on our inner voice versus external expectations.
"I swear I highlighted something in every chapter. This book really spoke to me in so many ways," Witherspoon said on the Reese's Book Club website.
Oprah Winfrey picked Hidden Valley Road: Inside the Mind of an American Family, by Robert Kolker.
The nonfiction work is the real-life story of a family with twelve children, six of whom were diagnosed with schizophrenia, and how scientists hoped their tragic story could help them better understand this mental illness.
"This is a riveting true story of an American family that reads like a medical detective journey," Winfrey said in announcing the Oprah's Book Club selection.
