The Most Fun We Ever Had is one of the strongest debut novels I’ve read in the past few years. This multigenerational family saga transported me to my childhood and watching my mother meticulously fold laundry and eating tomatoes from my grandfather’s garden and making out with my high school boyfriend on the couch and college and marriage and nesting and pregnancy and motherhood and saying goodbye to my father at the end of his life.

I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it.

Which made me wonder: which character would you most like Claire Lombardo to feature in a sequel? I’ll go first. Wendy.

Best paired with granola bars with chocolate chips and fresh pineapple in clear plastic vats of juice and non-gluten-free pretzels.
