I m between 35 and 4 stars here so I ll round upWhy is it so fascinating to read about people in the midst of crises mostly of their own design Is it like rubbernecking as you pass a gruesome accident

reading about people whose lives are a mess can be fascinating And if you look in the dictionary next to the word mess you might find Elsa the protagonist of Liska Jacobs debut novel Catalina She s

over achieving girlfriend Jane and Tom a wealthy arrogant client of Jared and Robby s who owns the boat they will travel on It s a perfect opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the island along with copious amounts of liuor and pills at least as far as Elsa is concerned and perhaps rekindle some of the fun they used to haveIt s not long before Elsa realizes her friends are having troubles of their own Charly and Jared are struggling with fertility issues and Jared s mercurial moods alternating between attentive and overly flirtatious which puts Charly even on edge Charly longs to rekindle her friendship with Elsa but notices that Elsa doesn t uite seem to care about any of them as much as Charly hopes that s not true Robby despite being happy with Jane misses the Elsa he used to know and wants her back not this sharp edged high strung addict she has becomeFueled by a lack of inhibition and depression over the shambles of her life Elsa blunders from one bad situation into another
