Holds Alert Deux: THE VACATIONERS

The VacationersThe Entertainment Weekly blog just added another voice to the chorus of excitement over The Vacationers by Emma Straub, (Penguin/Riverhead) — see our holds alert from two weeks ago (and our prediction that this would be a breakout).

Entertainment Weekly gives a pitch for it being THE 204 Summer Must-Read:

It’s kind of like a Jonathan Tropper novel in that it’s super-readable and funny and a total page-turner, but it also has a lot of smart things to say about relationships and love and big messy families. It’s light but not just empty calories — ideal for the beach!

Several libraries have ordered more copies, but holds continue to outstrip ordering.
