REVIEW Families and Other Nonreturnable Gifts 107 Ngs live on their own planets At least she can count on one person in her life her devoted boyfriend Tom Down to earth and loving he's the one thing that's kept Keats grounded for the last decade But when Keats's mother makes a surprise a. This was the first book I ve ever read by Claire LaZebnik and I really enjoyed it Keats was a really likable person and you really felt for her when she had to deal with her crazy dysfunctional family When I first realized that Tom and Keats had a huge age difference and they had started dating when she was 15 I was a little creeped out but it really worked with the story I really hated Hopkins but I loved Milton so LaZebnik did a great job developing her characters and defining who they are I enjoyed following Keats and watching her discover how she really wants to live her life Her family sounds so crazy that I understood completely how Keats felt towards them Keats really learns to understand the value of family and how you re stuck with what you have so you should make the most of it There were some slow parts to the book but in the end it was a nice story

REVIEW Families and Other Nonreturnable Gifts 107 Despite her name Keats Sedlak is the sanest person in her large nutty family of brilliant eccentrics Her parents both brainy academics are barely capable of looking after themselves let alone anyone else and her two uber intelligent sibli. Keats Sedlak is living a content comfortable life She is living in an apartment with her boyfriend of ten years and has a not so challenging job as an office manager However she is the oddball in her family the normal one to say the least Her brother Milton hasn t left their mother s house for two years Her sister Hopkins is a genius and she is currently saving lives as a neurologist Her father also a genius is a published author and a professor at Harvard Lastly her mother drives her insane for many reasons one of those is for always implying that Keats s boyfriend Tom isn t good enough or smart enough for her In fact her whole family seems to think that about Tom They also don t like her job none of them understand why she is working there and not getting a higher education While her family definitely drives her nuts she is there for them when she is needed like for going through items in the house she grew up in because her mother wants to sell it In spending time with her family she is also spending time with her dad s personal assistant Jacob Keats starts to uestion certain aspects in her life and witnesses all the changes taking place around her She starts to see that change isn t always a bad thingMy thoughtsThis was a very good read but it made me a little depressed at the same time Let me try to explain why without giving too much away Keats s parents who have been separated for years are finally going through a divorce a family member suffers a medical emergency and I think the fact that Keats has to constantly defend her boyfriend and her happiness made it a little sad for me Keats is a great protagonist though Although her family is constantly on her case and uestioning her happiness Keats stands up against it and defends herself She also clearly loves them and lends them a hand or even a stubborn threat to help them out I definitely felt for Keats when she was dealing with her family but it wasn t always depressing When she did interact with them there was usually some humor to be found in the struggle too Here is Keats describing time with her dad When he finally moves on from the topic of Keats s Wasted Life it s to give me a lecture about the heart both as muscle and as a literary trope It s clearly something he s put a lot of thought into but none of his observations seem all that original to me and after a while I can t restrain a yawn which sends him into a long rant about the deterioration of the American attention span which makes me so bored I could scream which I guess proves his point p 137While I wouldn t say that this is the best book I ve ever read it was an enjoyable read with a melancholy sort of feel
