Review: Families & Other Nonreturnable Gifts

Keats Sedlak has always felt inferior amid her brilliant family, and the only sane member. With a steady boyfriend and job, she's constantly being called back home to help the family. Now, her mother is filing for divorce and putting the house up for sale, her brother won't leave his bedroom, her genius sister refuses to come home and help, her father's health is slipping, and... she's starting to question her own life choices throughout it all.

In one night, I read this start to finish. I was that engrossed. More a women's fiction with romantic elements, this books delves into the family dynamic, our innermost fears of mediocrity, and dares us to question what we truly want. With realistic and flawed characters, hilarious secondary characters and scenarios, this is not to be missed.
