Agatha Arch is Afraid of Everything: A Novel

We rated this book:


Agatha Arch never thought her life was perfect, but she’s still taken completely by surprise when she discovers her husband screwing the neighborhood dog walker in their backyard shed. Now she’s suddenly separated and only a part-time mom, left far too much to her own devices. Unable to focus on writing a new book, Agatha instead gets herself a pair of spy pants and an array of potentially useful tools and decides to spy on her husband and his new girlfriend. And also on a suspicious (to Agatha) young woman begging in a busy intersection. While continuing to nettle the other moms in her local Facebook group, annoy her neighbors by refusing to clean up her now-broken-down shed, and confound her therapist with her many anxieties. But maybe along the way, Agatha will also find a way to start picking up the pieces and rebuilding her life.

This delightful novel by Kristin Bair stars a fun protagonist in an unbelievably believable situation. Agatha Arch is Afraid of Everything is quirky and fun, and readers will see aspects of their own personalities reflected in the pages. Agatha is far from perfect, but she’s earnest and righteously angry and it’s impossible not to root for her as she sorts out the current mess of her life. Such a fun story!
