I hemmed and hawed about reading this book because I had been disappointed in the author's previous title, The Vacationers. I decided to give it a shot after seeing a lot of buzz about it and I'm glad that I did. I really liked this one! I loved all of the characters and spent an entire Sunday afternoon immersed in their lives. A wonderful read about two different generations: one who is coming of age and one who is getting older and looking back at their youth.
