Today Will Be Different
Eleanor Flood is going to clean up her act, only change into yoga clothes for yoga, which today she will actually attend, and be a better version of herself. But then, as it always does, life happens.

Eleanor's husband is missing, and their son, Timby, is wearing eye shadow to school and getting into fashion battles on the playground. (It's true that it's Eleanor's fault: She did put makeup in his Christmas stocking.) Just when it seems like things can't get weirder or more in the way of Eleanor's personal transformation, a graphic memoir called The Flood Sisters surfaces, and the dramatic story it tells reveals long-buried secrets and a sister to whom Eleanor never speaks.
With all the artistic madness, genius plotting, and bold social observation that made Bernadette a hit, TODAY WILL BE DIFFERENT is a hilarious and heart filled day-in-the-life romp filtered through Maria Semple's brilliant eyes.
