Praise For This Book

If summer could somehow fit into a book, then you'd find it in Malibu Rising. OPRAH DAILY

Malibu Rising is packed with plenty of scintillating scandal, but Reid cultivates real empathy for her characters, who form the tender heart that beats at the novel's core and are its greatest achievement.... a juicy, irresistible book that will sweep readers away. BOOKPAGE

The book everyone's going to have in their carry-on. THE WEEK

Reid has once again crafted a fast-paced, engaging novel that smoothly transports readers between decades and storylines. THE WASHINGTON POST

Reid's latest happens to be one of the most anticipated of the year-and rightfully so. . . . It's a must-read. PARADE

Bewitching. ELLE


Malibu Rising will be the sought-after book of the summer. BOOKLIST (STARRED REVIEW)

Reid's descriptions of Malibu are so evocative that readers will swear they feel the sea breeze on their faces or the grit of the sand between their toes. The Rivas have a believable sibling dynamic, and the family members are complex and delightfully flawed (especially Mick, whose bad decisions reverberate throughout the novel). A compulsively readable story about the bonds between family members and the power of breaking free. KIRKUS REVIEWS
