Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Read with Jenna Book Club Pick as Featured on Today • From the author of Daisy Jones & The Six and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo . . .

Four famous siblings throw an epic party to celebrate the end of the summer. But over the course of twenty-four hours, their lives will change forever.


“One of the most anticipated [books] of the year—and rightfully so. . . . It’s a must-read.”—Parade

Malibu: August 1983. It’s the day of Nina Riva’s annual end-of-summer party, and anticipation is at a fever pitch. Everyone wants to be around the famous Rivas: Nina, the talented surfer and supermodel; brothers Jay and Hud, one a championship surfer, the other a renowned photographer; and their adored baby sister, Kit. Together the siblings are a source of fascination in Malibu and the world over—especially as the offspring of the legendary singer Mick Riva.

The only person not looking forward to the party of the year is Nina herself, who never wanted to be the center of attention, and who has also just been very publicly abandoned by her pro tennis player husband. Oh, and maybe Hud—because it is long past time for him to confess something to the brother from whom he’s been inseparable since birth.

Jay, on the other hand, is counting the minutes until nightfall, when the girl he can’t stop thinking about promised she’ll be there.

And Kit has a couple secrets of her own—including a guest she invited without consulting anyone.

By midnight the party will be completely out of control. By morning, the Riva mansion will have gone up in flames. But before that first spark in the early hours before dawn, the alcohol will flow, the music will play, and the loves and secrets that shaped this family’s generations will all come rising to the surface.

Malibu Rising is a story about one unforgettable night in the life of a family: the night they each have to choose what they will keep from the people who made them . . . and what they will leave behind.

Review

  • I got sucked in by the reviews

    By jasnyc65
    Terrible ending.. by the time I finished reading the last page I wished I had watched paint dry instead .
  • Fine

    It was ok. Maybe a beach read. No depth and I could forget about it for weeks then pick it back up and feel like I hadn’t missed anything. The story was interesting and you want to find out who set fire to the house, so you get through it...eventually.

    All families have baggage and this one has its fair share. This is an enjoyable read.
  • Great summer read

    So much intrigue. The backstory is so good and I felt so connected with the four siblings. Captivating leading up to the party and so much more beyond that. Great summer read

  • Good not Great

    By Dale18wed
    Like a reviewer said before, Pt 1 was great. 2… eh. Introduced way too many new characters and it just didn’t flow. She should have kept storyline central to the Riva’s.
  • Part 1 is amazing, part 2 ... not so much.

    By BookwormMeza
    I loved part 1 of this book, Taylor Jenkins Reid captured the struggles and heartache of the main characters, in the first part! Part 2 introduced random characters and completely disconnected the story she was telling. In the end it all wraps up to give the reader a mediocre ending.
