SUMMARY: The Most Fun We Ever Had is the story of the Sorensons—a Chicago-based family with four adult daughters, Wendy, Violet, Liza and Gracie, and their still-madly-in-love parents, Marilyn and David.
The Sorensons always assumed their family’s problems were pretty run-of-the-mill—potential torrid love affairs, life-threatening overdoses and sociopathic children. But when a long-buried secret emerges, the entire family has to question how “normal” they really are.
Diving into the gritty, and often dark, histories of each family member, this book is an unputdownable story of the pain we bring to those who love us the most.
WHY THIS IS A MUST-READ: This book had me gripped from the very first page. I laughed. I cried. I didn’t want it to ever end. This has been one of my favorite books of the year (easily as amazing as Where the Crawdads Sing and Daisy Jones & The Six!).
Claire Lombardo is a master of words, capable of running you through the gamut of emotions in just a single page. I fell in love with this family and their story. This is a must-read!
