The Nest by @Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney

"Don't count your eggs before they hatch"

That's basically what this book is about. The Plumb family is like any other family, haha.

This book is about 4 siblings who are entitled brats. Yep, that's about the gist of it. They are really not a part of each other's lives. Until one night, one of them makes a huge mistake that ends up having dire consequences for all of them.

Their father always used to say, " don't count your eggs before they hatch," and what did they do? Just that! They knew that when the youngest would turn 40, they would have a pretty nice inheritance. Well, when things change and that is not the case, these siblings come together. Their main goal: Repayment.

They all feel like they will be different people, if only, they could get their inheritance. They will pay off their debts and loans and be so much more .. free. The whole time I'm reading this book, I'm thinking how it's their fathers fault. They counted on this money their whole lives and tried to live above their means because they saw a bail out in their future. What a curse.

Parents, don't promise your kids an inheritance. Just have it be a nice surprise. lol

I did like some things about the book, reading about their horrible messes, made me feel better about my life. I didn't like any of the characters really, they were all so unlikable. Overall, this book was just okay. If you want to know what your kids will do when they have a big some of money promised to them later in life and then it's wiped away, read this book.
