Summer Cannibals: #bookreview




Have you ever thought that your family was the most dysfunctional family to ever exist?Most of us have probably had that thought once or twice. In reality, our families are not struggling with their relationships quite as much as the family in Summer Cannibals. They are all a hot mess – together and separately.

Why are they such emotional wrecks? I cannot tell you because it would ruin the surprise.Β I will tell you that the father is a narcissist and possibly a sociopath.

Everyone – mother, father plus their three daughters – Georgina, Jax and Pippa- are home for a week in order to help Pippa through a crisis. Ok, the dad is only around because he had a garden tour scheduled, which he refuses to cancel. He’s not really there to help his daughter. Typical narcissist.

It was an interesting story. It’s definitely a reminder that all is not what it seems. Perfect looking families are not perfect by any means. I’m so thankful that my family is not like this family. We may be dysfunctional but we’re not cruel to each other.


If I had to rate it, I would give it 4 out of 5 stars.



Summer Cannibals by Melanie Hobson will be available on Amazon in August or September 2018.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
