Book twenty-four: The Vacationers by Emma Straub

How I enjoy a dysfunctional family. We are all in one so this book can resonate with everyone.

Franny is the matriarch of a family with a number of things going wrong. Her husband has strayed. Her daughter is actively working to lose her virginity before she leaves for college. Her son's bad financial decisions leaves him with staggering debt. And her best friend is waiting to hear news that could change is life.

The characters struggle to move forward and grow and it is just awesome. So many mistakes, so much hurt, so much forgiving, and so much joy.

A witty and fun read that I recommend highly.

24 down plus 28 to go.
