The Nest
368 pages; Ecco
Why We Love It: This delicious novel, about four adult siblings fighting over their inheritance, was just published in April and already we want more of the Plumb family. D'Aprix possesses the addictively winning combination of an astute eye for social comedy and a big, compassionate heart.

The Sequel: Melody is perhaps our favorite of the Plum siblings, and her kick-ass teenage twins are right on the cusp of the their lives. We'd love to join them as they are Leaving the Nest.
