The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
This book is about a dysfunctional family of children who grow up in a life of privilege but have no idea about the true concept of money. The Nest refers to a sum of money that is sitting in an account waiting for disbursement to the children of a deceased father.
Ultimately, the children find their way to love and happiness, although some not in the traditional way.
Readers response: some readers thought the character Leo would come around in the end and were disappointed that he did not. There were mixed responses regarding the "likability" of the novel. No one had any favorite characters.
