Take caution when reading Grown Ups by Marian Keyes, because you will forget about your real life, lose track of time and start to believe that you're part of the glamorous yet troubled Casey family. Following a year in the life of brothers Johnny, Ed and Liam, along with their wives and children, there's never a dull moment in this book.
Family members clash, have their secrets exposed and ponder a very modern question: whether they will ever master "adulting". If you've been missing your family and friends, this is the perfect book to read because it’s bursting with complex relationships, funny moments and so much love. There’s a wonderfully escapist note to this book too, with the Casey family’s fabulous holidays - including a trip to Tuscany. I loved this book so much that I'm considering writing fan fiction based on two of the characters, because I don't want their story to end. - Carla
