Jacob Cox is 18 and finds himself running his family's new business, a dilapidated bar in a forgotten seaside town. Jacob longs to escape his family of villains, liars and psychopaths. Could the bar be his last chance to make money and get away from everyone he despises? Is his family really that bad or is he actually worse than all of them put together?

To make the business a success he needs help from his dangerous twin brother Miller, his disastrous best friend Curly and his annoyingly cool younger brother Clint. It's a perilous undertaking with monstrous foes and maybe even love (or just deadly sex).

A screwball comedy about a dysfunctional family who need each other to survive.

This book kept me reading. Very comedic, yet not over-rated. I feel it would appeal to a small window of people, however. My sense of humor is a little different than most people I know and this book was perfect for me.
