The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix & All The Bight Places by Jennifer Niven


The Bight Places
Esse livro foi publicado no Brasil com o titulo Por Lugares Incríveis pela editora Seguinte. 

Dois jovens prestes a escolher a morte despertam um no outro a vontade de viver.

Violet Markey tinha uma vida perfeita, mas todos os seus planos deixam de fazer sentido quando ela e a irmã sofrem um acidente de carro e apenas Violet sobrevive. Sentindo-se culpada pelo que aconteceu, Violet se afasta de todos e tenta descobrir como seguir em frente. Theodore Finch é o esquisito da escola, perseguido pelos valentões e obrigado a lidar com longos períodos de depressão, o pai violento e a apatia do resto da família.
Enquanto Violet conta os dias para o fim das aulas, quando poderá ir embora da cidadezinha onde mora, Finch pesquisa diferentes métodos de suicídio e imagina se conseguiria levar algum deles adiante. Em uma dessas tentativas, ele vai parar no alto da torre da escola e, para sua surpresa, encontra Violet, também prestes a pular. Um ajuda o outro a sair dali, e essa dupla improvável se une para fazer um trabalho de geografia: visitar os lugares incríveis do estado onde moram. Nessas andanças, Finch encontra em Violet alguém com quem finalmente pode ser ele mesmo, e a garota para de contar os dias e passa a vivê-los.

The Nest
A warm, funny and acutely perceptive debut novel about four adult siblings and the fate of the shared inheritance that has shaped their choices and their lives.

Every family has its problems. But even among the most troubled, the Plumb family stands out as spectacularly dysfunctional. Years of simmering tensions finally reach a breaking point on an unseasonably cold afternoon in New York City as Melody, Beatrice, and Jack Plumb gather to confront their charismatic and reckless older brother, Leo, freshly released from rehab. Months earlier, an inebriated Leo got behind the wheel of a car with a nineteen-year-old waitress as his passenger. The ensuing accident has endangered the Plumbs joint trust fund, “The Nest,” which they are months away from finally receiving. Meant by their deceased father to be a modest mid-life supplement, the Plumb siblings have watched The Nest’s value soar along with the stock market and have been counting on the money to solve a number of self-inflicted problems.

Melody, a wife and mother in an upscale suburb, has an unwieldy mortgage and looming college tuition for her twin teenage daughters. Jack, an antiques dealer, has secretly borrowed against the beach cottage he shares with his husband, Walker, to keep his store open. And Bea, a once-promising short-story writer, just can’t seem to finish her overdue novel. Can Leo rescue his siblings and, by extension, the people they love? Or will everyone need to reimagine the future they’ve envisioned? Brought together as never before, Leo, Melody, Jack, and Beatrice must grapple with old resentments, present-day truths, and the significant emotional and financial toll of the accident, as well as finally acknowledge the choices they have made in their own lives.

This is a story about the power of family, the possibilities of friendship, the ways we depend upon one another and the ways we let one another down. In this tender, entertaining, and deftly written debut, Sweeney brings a remarkable cast of characters to life to illuminate what money does to relationships, what happens to our ambitions over the course of time, and the fraught yet unbreakable ties we share with those we love.
