The story takes place in Ng’s Shaker Heights hometown in Ohio, following two families whose lives become inextricably intertwined through their children.

Witherspoon’s interest in the book led to it being chosen for her Hello Sunshine Book Club’s September 2017 pick. With Washington also a fan of the book, the pair decided to collaborate. The book will be adapted into a script by Liz Tigelaar and the project housed at ABC Studios. Witherspoon will executive produce under her Hello Sunshine banner and Washington, under her Simpson Street banner.
