Meanwhile, Abby and Ken are both harboring secrets of their own, and there is a new person on the periphery of the family—Steph, who doesn’t make her connection known.

We have many political references throughout the book (as this book is based during the 2016 election year), and I felt that they were quite unnecessary.Growing up in Massachusetts, I frequently went to the Cape with my family, enjoyed the marine wildlife, the birds (terns! That others found his ingenuity threatening was not his problem; perhaps they should be the ones consuming mood-regulating drugs. The depictions of sexism and the patriarchy are nuanced, allowing the reader to see how the characters have been shaped by these forces without giving the novel itself a sexist or patriarchal feel. I get that Abby acknowledges that she changed her mind once she got pregnant, but it always gives me a sour taste in my mouth when I read that particular plotline because it comes up so often (and I personally just ran into it in back-to-back books) and the alternatives—person who doesn’t want children doesn’t have them and is happy; person who wants children doesn’t/can’t have them and realizes they’re happy without—are not nearly so prevalent.

Compare and contrast Jenny and Steph’s arcs as they (re-)calibrate their place in this complicated family. I didn’t get much from this story, as I struggled through it and didn’t feel any connection towards the characters.That book evoked the same push and pull feeling of needing to consume quickly while slowing down to stretch out the reading experience. Like her 2019 memoir “ Wild Game,” which examined the role Brodeur played in her mother’s long affair with a family friend, “Little Monsters” is a tale of dysfunction and buried secrets, set in and around moneyed Cape Cod.

The bohemian, single Abby is a “graduate of RISD, 1999” and had been “making art on Cape Cod ever since.

It is hinted at throughout the book and confirmed towards the end very clearly, but there are no long descriptions and the focus is put entirely where it belongs: in the ways the participants were affected after the fact.

Sometimes that's how families are, disjointed, dysfunctional, and working with what they have and keeping it together as best they can. He followed her down the hall to the exam room, still puzzling over why his longtime doctor, at least five years his junior, would have retired.The brilliant Made By Dyslexia are offering free training for schools on how to create an inclusive classroom that supports Dyslexic Thinkers. Interestingly, the novel is set in an immediately recognizable period of history: 2016, right before the presidential election. It’s particularly frustrating how often women who don’t want a traditional family are so often saddled with one. I was very excited to read this book, as I loved the author’s memoir “Wild Game” (which I gave five stars to).
