Celebrity book clubs have released their picks for January 2021.
The novel takes place in the late 1800s and stars Ada, a young woman who — fearing repercussions for her inability to conceive — runs away from her husband to join a notorious outlaw gang.
"This feminist Western will keep you on the edge of your seat on a high stakes ride through the old West," Witherspoon wrote in announcing her Hello Sunshine book club selection.
The novel follows the journey of Darren, who's plucked from a job as a Starbucks manager by the CEO of a hot new startup company and becomes its only Black salesman — a move that drastically changes his life.
Hager said, in announcing her Read With Jenna pick, that it was "a title I knew our book club readers needed to read as we begin this new year with a fresh start."
The novel is the story of Blythe, a woman who's determined to provide her daughter with the safe, loving upbringing that Blythe herself never had, only to discover just how unusual — and possibly disturbing — her own daughter seems to be.
You can read an excerpt of The Push in GMA's announcement of its choice.
