The People We Hate at the Wedding (by Grant Ginder)

I think I got this recommendation from Entertainment Weekly (as I do so many of my book recs) and found it a really enjoyable read. It's a satirical look at a deeply dysfunctional family, kind of a Corrections-lite. I don't mind unlikeable characters (and they are all kind of unlikeable) and the Big Family Secret plot has just the right level of stakes.

I was surprised to see it getting so many mixed reviews on Goodreads, since I totally enjoyed this as a light, entertaining, funny read about these family members who are various levels of horrible -- who I rooted for anyway.
