The Very Best Kind of Dysfunctional Family

Matt King's wife lies in a coma, and his daughters, Scottie and Alex are suddenly under his full charge.  Thus begins Kaui Hart Hemmings' The Descendants, a really good novel which captures the true messiness of families with unflinching dialogue and total resistance to tying any scene with a neat bow.  It's wonderfully caustic and immensely readable.  Can't wait to read The Possibilities, coming out soon!
