But the time frame of this engaging, neatly plotted novel distinguishes it, serving as the emotional underpinning of the action.

She is the undercurrent of and catalyst in this cause-and-effect story, whose death at age 30 left Adam a distracted, single father, and Ken and Abby emotionally on their own to cling to each other in a way that might not have been healthy.He raises his two children, his little monsters, (mostly) singlehanded after his much loved first wife dies aged 30. They can be antagonistic presences in each other’s lives, and certainly some of the characters do or have done horrible things… but they’re all human, and the novel gives them that humanity, that freedom to be ugly, without condoning their every move.

Told through multiple POVs, Little Monsters has the right balance of family drama, flawed characters and the coastal, summer setting of Cape Cod. Adam swore under his breath at an old lady driving forty in the fast lane and raised his arm out the window at a lunatic in a convertible cutting in and out of traffic.

She KNOWS this world she's writing - the setting but also the intricate and complicated family dynamics in play here.
