The Nest

The Nest is by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney. The four Plumb children are waiting for their inheritance. Their father put a little money aside that has grown into a significant fortune. The will stated that the inheritance couldn't be had until the youngest child turned forty. So Jack, Bea, and Melody have been living with "The Nest" in view for some time. Leo, the oldest, has plenty of money. Then shortly before the long awaited day, Leo is involved in an accident. He is drunk, high, and in the car with a young woman who is seriously injured. The "Nest" is used to bail him out of his trouble, and now the siblings want the money paid back - something Leo isn't able, or willing, to do. The Nest is a story of family: when to hang on and when to let go, and the importance of friendship, possibility, and coming to terms with our mistakes.
