Book: Pineapple Street
Author: Jenny Jackson
This is my 64th read for the year
This is the story of the Stockton family - an extremely rich family that lives in New York. The three children - Darley, the eldest (who gave up her inheritance because she refused to have her new husband sign a prenup when they got married), Cord (who married a middle class girl that is sure she will never fit in or be accepted by this family), and Georgiana (who is the youngest by far and who falls in love with someone she cannot have) and their parents have never wanted for anything. They are old money and their world is one that most people wish they could have. Yet like most families, that money does not solve all their problems.
I don't have much to say about this one. I had seen it reviewed on a facebook book page I follow and thought it would make a good summer read. It was just okay. I hated just about all the characters. Except Malcom who is Darley's husband. The worst was Gerogiana - just a complete rich brat that never really redeemed herself in my opinion, even though the author tried to do so in the end. I just could not care for anyone in these stories - their life so absurd. I finished it, but I would not recommend it.
