From the author of Daisy Jones and the Six, Malibu Rising is a delightfully soapy tale of four siblings and a fateful event. It is told over the course of 24 hours, set in 1983, with flashbacks leading the reader through events and introducing characters leading to the party of the year in Malibu.
The pace is quick and it accelerates as time goes on, literally marking the hours at the beginning of chapters. It is delightfully nostalgic, capturing not only the zeitgeist of the early 80's, but from the 50's to that point. The story may wrap up at the end of the 24 hour period, but it is practically begging for a sequel to witness the full rise from the ashes.
