"Five wildly creative siblings are drawn back into each other’s orbit during a crisis. Along the way, Leon lets each character take turns telling the story and stitches together their collisions via e-mails, texts and telephone conversations, maintaining a healthy balance between tart humor and touching drama. Quirky, funny and eminently readable." —Kirkus
"A pleasingly dysfunctional family grapples with troubling events from their childhood. Each individually complains of a dilemma and begs to be rescued. The characters are always on the verge of a breakdown, but their epiphanies save them. Leon’s novel touches on very real familial issues yet maintains a playful tone." —Publishers Weekly
