digger, but Krista totally deserved it, and it was mostly a joke anyway). Effie declines, but then remembers a beloved childhood treasure is still hidden in the house. Her only chance to retrieve it is to break into Greenoaks while everyone is busy celebrating. As Effie sneaks around the house, hiding under tables and peeping through trapdoors, she realizes the secrets Greenoaks holds aren’t just in the dusty passageways and hidden attics she grew up exploring. Watching how her sister, brother, and dad behave when they think no one is looking, Effie overhears conversations, makes discoveries, and begins to see her family in a new light. Then she runs into Joe—the love of her life, who long ago broke her heart, and who’s still as handsome and funny as ever—and even more truths emerge.
But will Effie act on these revelations? Will she stay hidden or step out into the party and take her place with her family? And truthfully, what did she really come back to Greenoaks for? Over the course of one blowout party, Effie realizes that she must be honest with herself and confront her past before she’ll ever be able to face her future.

READ MY BOOK REVIEW
𝗥𝗘𝗩𝗜𝗘𝗪 𝗦𝗡𝗔𝗣𝗦𝗛𝗢𝗧: Sophie Kinsella is hands down one of my favorite authors in the entire world. She writes quirky characters and plots that always make me smile. I loved this book just as much as I’ve loved her others- to pieces!
Sophie Kinsella has taken a simple concept and blown it so far out of proportion in this novel that I couldn’t help by laugh the whole way through. Imagine this: being an adult and finding out that your parents are not only divorcing but selling your beloved childhood home. To make it worse, you have a stepmother from hell, a rift between father and daughter because of said stepmother, and an upcoming party where you’ll have to face both? Sounds like a dilemma, eh? Well, this is the backdrop of Kinsella’s upcoming release, The Party Crasher. This book takes family dysfunction to a whole other level. There are times when you simply want to reach into the book and shake the characters awake because they are being so thick headed, but you also can’t help but laugh and feel pity for them ether. Effie of course is a quintessential Kinsella character and while she’s a bit immature and bubbleheaded she is what makes this book! I loved her dearly no matter how many times she made mistakes along the way. Readers are going to laugh about her antics from page one all the way through to the end.
If you’re a fan of Sophie Kinsella (aka Madeleine Wickham) then you won’t want to miss this hilarious new read! I devoured it from cover to cover and was truly sad when it ended. I just can’t help but fall in love with each and every character Kinsella breathes to life in her books. They are too much! Obviously, I’m gushing because I loved this so much and I hope many readers give this one a chance because it’s far to good to pass up. Highly recommended!
