The children of a once-brilliant playwright and a struggling actress, the four Haas siblings grew up in chaos -- raised in an environment composed of neglect and glamour in equal measure. When their father dies, they must depend on their intense but fragile bond to remember what it means to be family despite years of anger and hurt. These brothers and sisters are painfully human, sometimes selfish, and almost always making the wrong decisions, but their endearing struggles provide laughter through tears -- something anyone who's ever had a sibling can relate to.

Had just finished a Robin Antalek novel which I was engaged in, but couldn't get into this one. Kept trying for a while, but finally gave up.

A well written, squirm in your seat novel about a family in disarray that ultimately finds a kind of peace.
