A charmingly hilarious and deeply insightful novel about the importance and impossibility of making peace with our family. Despite her name, Keats Sedlak is the sanest person in her large, nutty family of brilliant eccentrics. Her parents, both brainy academics, are barely capable of looking after themselves, let alone anyone else, and her two uber-intelligent siblings live on their own planets. At least she can count on one person in her life, her devoted boyfriend Tom. Down-to-earth and loving, he's the one thing that's kept Keats grounded for the last decade. But when Keats's mother makes a surprise announcement, the entire family is sent into a tailspin. For the first time, Keats can't pick up the pieces by herself. Now she must reevaluate everything she's ever assumed about herself and her family--and make the biggest decision of her life.

Editorial Reviews

'Just a great book to read. You can't put it down, because you want to see things work out for Keats and her oddball family. GenerationGbooks
Claire LaZebnik has done it again. Families and Other Nonreturnable Gifts is a gem that's equal parts sugar and spice. LaZebnik will capture you with her winning humor, but she'll keep you with her keen insight. Just make sure that you clear your schedule before you pick it up because you won't be able to put it down. Jillian Lauren, New York Times­ bestselling author of Some Girls
