Reminiscent of Sarah Mlynowski’s Me Vs. Me and the Gwyneth Paltrow movie Sliding Doors, Maybe in Another Life explores the two paths Hannah Martin’s life could take. After returning to her hometown of Los Angeles, Hannah joins a group of friends at a bar. In one life, Hannah goes home with her boyfriend from high school while she goes home with her best friend in another. There are some things that stay the same regardless of that decision, but other aspects of Hannah’s life hinge on the decision she makes that night. Taylor Jenkins Reid tells the parallel stories in alternating chapters that end at just the right moment so that there’s never a point where the reader thinks, “I can stop here for the night.”
