The Best of Us by Sarah Pekkanen

bestofThere’s so much about this story that is so obviously the kind of fantasy people like to have.  College friends, now adults, gather together to celebrate the nerdy one’s birthday. But the thing is he so wealthy that it’s an all expenses paid extravaganza for everyone.  I feel like the author wrote every detail she could think of while daydreaming about winning the lottery. Or wondering what it might be like to be Jay-Z level rich.  Which isn’t to say the book is bad because, yeah, it is kind of fun to imagine that. So the friends and spouses come together and of course nobody’s life is quite what it seems on the outside  and during this lavish week together facades slip, secrets come out, and so on. A good vacation book.
