The most hilarious debut you will read this yearMeet The AdultsClaire and Matt are divorced but decide what's best for their daughter Scarlett is to have a 'normal' family Christmas They can't agree on whose idea it was or who said they should bring their new partners But someone did and it's too late to pull the plugClaire brings her My life has been going to hell in a handbasket clogged sewer line and flooded bathroom for starters so I decided it was time for a comedy And I love dysfunctional family stories This isn t really a dysfunctional family It s two exes and their current partners and the daughter they share Matt the ex husband managed to irritate me within pages What ever did Alex see in him Or Clare initially for that matter Or maybe I just like men to have balls Add into the mix the daughter s imaginary rabbit friend who misinterprets what scientists doThere s lots of thinking and second guessing going on here Things we all wonder about get expressed on the pages I found myself nodding a lot Other than her choice of a man I did find myself bonding with Alex As a stepmother without her own kids I remember those initial years of trying to figure out where I fit in Hurse does a great job of expressing Alex Of course it doesn t take long for things to start getting snarky Members of mixed families will relate to how wrong it can go It s not laugh out loud funny dry humor In fact the publisher does a disservice to author and reader by calling the book hilarious Hurse mixes her formats police interviews excerpts of brochures intermingled with regular storytelling I liked the mixture it kept things moving along at a brisk clip I loved the ending seeing how it all comes together I can definitely recommend this book Just know it s chuckles than tears streaming down your face from laughing which is my definition of hilarious My thanks to netgalley and Random House for an advance copy of this book
