Three Story House

I loved the concept of this book. Three adult cousins come together to save one of their grandma's old houses from being condemned. Over the course of the year they all confront their various problems. Lizzie, a star soccer player, is benched after she tears her ACL and is desperately trying to go through rehab and be better in time to try and make the Olympic team. She's also struggling with the fact that she is 28 and still has no idea who her real father is. The only reason she agreed to try and save the house was to try and get some leverage on her overly religious mother and stepfather. Isobel, a former child star and struggling actress, is trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life. As the youngest in her family she craves attention, but is it what she really wants? Elyse is falling apart at the seams. Her younger sister is marrying the man she's in love with and she just can't cope. Together these three cousins share up and downs as they come together to save the weird, three story, spite house and they find themselves changing in ways they never could have imagined.

Like I said, cool concept but... I still didn't really love any of the characters. I was more intrigued with the house to be honest. Not a bad read, but not one that will stay with you. Good for the beach though.
