Malibu Rising

by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Malibu Rising Synopsis

From the Sunday Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & The Six. 'Immerses us in a glamorous, star-studded world, but is full of raw human emotion. Its characters felt completely real to me - each one is flawed and messy and impossible not to love.' BETH O'LEARY _________________________ A lifetime holding it together. One party will bring it crashing down. Malibu: August, 1983. It's the day of Nina Riva's annual end-of-summer party, and anticipation is at a fever pitch. Everyone wants to be around the famous Rivas: Nina, the talented surfer and supermodel; brothers Jay and Hud, one a championship surfer, the other a renowned photographer; and their adored baby sister, Kit. Together, the siblings are a source of fascination in Malibu and the world over-especially as the offspring of the legendary singer, Mick Riva. By midnight the party will be completely out of control. By morning, the Riva mansion will have gone up in flames. But before that first spark in the early hours before dawn, the alcohol will flow, the music will play, and the loves and secrets that shaped this family's generations will all come bubbling to the surface. Malibu Rising is a story about one unforgettable night in the life of a family: the night they each have to choose what they will keep from the people who made them . . . and what they will leave behind. _________________________ 'The perfect, literal, beach read, with the emotional depth of the ocean. I was such a fan of Daisy Jones and this certainly didn't disappoint.' HOLLY BOURNE 'It's a full on escapist delight.' STYLIST, Best Fiction of 2021 'Thank you Taylor Jenkins Reid for the escapism we all need- a sex-on-the-beach cocktail (quite literally) of a book.' PANDORA SYKES _________________________ Praise for Daisy Jones & The Six 'Utterly believable . . . fantastically enjoyable' THE TIMES 'Pitch perfect' SUNDAY TIMES 'Prepare to be obsessed' STYLIST 'I devoured this in a day, falling head over heels for it' REESE WITHERSPOON 'I LOVE it . . . I can't remember the last time I read a book that was so fun' DOLLY ALDERTON 'I didn't want this book to end' FEARNE COTTON

Malibu Rising Press Reviews

Completely slick and compelling, but also has such warmth and psychological insight. The characters were so real I almost found myself checking out their Wikipedia pages afterwards! It's the perfect, literal, beach read, with the emotional depth of the ocean. I was such a fan of Daisy Jones & The Six and this certainly didn't disappoint. -- Holly Bourne Heart-wrenching and utterly compelling, Malibu Rising is a story about the fierce bonds between four fascinating siblings. The novel immerses us in a glamorous, star-studded world but at its heart it's full of raw human emotion. Its characters felt completely real to me - each one is flawed and messy and impossible not to love. -- Beth O'Leary Thank you Taylor Jenkins Reid for the escapism we all need- a sex-on-the-beach cocktail (quite literally) of a book. * Pandora Sykes * It's a full on escapist delight. * Stylist, Best Fiction of 2021 * Think Selling Sunset with knobs onas Taylor Jenkins Reid again plunges us into the intoxicating, heat-heavy realm of intrigue of Malibu, this time amidst the world of the filthy rich. -- 2021 look ahead * BBC News *
