When a family has to deal with the subject of money, nothing ever seems to go as planned.

Four siblings in New York City – Melody, Beatrice, Jack and Leo – are close to receiving their joint trust fund left to them by their father, which they call “The Nest.” Leo’s reckless behavior has already endangered the fund and his older siblings try to have an intervention in order to come to agreements with what happens to the money.

All of the characters in this novel are problematic. Even the ones you want to like end up angering you at one point or another. By the end of the book, there isn’t any character you want to root for.

While a dysfunctional family is normally a great starting point, something didn’t click here.

Final say: Fly away from the nest. ★★☆☆☆
