They're a glamorous family, the Caseys.

Johnny Casey, his two brothers Ed and Liam, their beautiful, talented wives and all their kids spend a lot of time together - birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, weekends away. And they're a happy family. Johnny's wife, Jessie - who has the most money - insists on it.

Under the surface, though, conditions are murkier. While some people clash, other people like each other far too much . . .

Everything stays under control until Ed's wife Cara, gets concussion and can't keep her thoughts to herself. One careless remark at Johnny's birthday party, with the entire family present, starts Cara spilling out all their secrets.

In the subsequent unravelling, every one of the adults finds themselves wondering if it's time - finally - to grow up?

Messy, tangled complex humans who reminded me that few of us ever really sort out our lives at all
Jojo Moyes

Magnificently messy lives, brilliantly untangled. Funny, tender and completely absorbing!
Graham Norton

I loved every word of Grown Ups. I will be missing those gorgeous vibrant characters for many weeks to come. There should be a word to describe the sadness and satisfaction you feel when you read the last page of a Marian Keyes novel: the ending is perfect but you still want more, more, more
Liane Moriarty

I LOVED Grown Ups so much. It's SUCH a treat. I felt like I was rolling in PURE JOY throughout. The cleverest cream cake of words
Caitlin Moran

You may have written the best book of your career
Chris Evans, Virgin Radio

Funny and moving, with an acute eye for family foibles
Ian Rankin, bestselling author of the John Rebus thrillers

It is charming, funny and poignant. But also profound, heartbreaking. If you already love Marian, this is her best yet. If you haven't read her, this is the one
Nina Stibbe

Marian Keyes shows superb skill at tackling tough themes in this tale of a clan with secrets. Grown Ups is a warm-hearted, wise and highly entertaining portrayal of how families behave; and of the love and tolerance required to sustain our closest relationships
Hannah Beckerman, Observer

A novel that is warm and witty but never afraid to tackle the big stuff
Elizabeth Day, Mail on Sunday

Keyes at her best: capturing everyday voices with humour and empathy with writing that you'll devour in a weekend. Just pure and simple joy.
Stylist

A brilliant bunch of flawed individuals, all battling to understand themselves and those around them. Definitely worth devouring this year! What a treat
Giovanna Fletcher

Marian's chatty style pulls readers in with warmth, wit and high drama
The Sunday Times Online

Grown Ups is big-hearted and entertaining, dark, funny and hugely empathetic
Daily Express

Her most ambitious work. Delightful, bursting with with and compassion
The Daily Telegraph

This beauty of a book just took the crown as my new favourite Marian Keyes novel (and that is a HIGH bar). It's tender, hilarious, important, with characters who feel as real as your own family by the time you're done. I put it down and felt bereft
Beth O'Leary

A book that will make you laugh out loud, get choked up, and be very annoyed when you get to the end and have to say goodbye to all these characters. Marian's storytelling skills make you care deeply about each and every one of them
The Sun Online

Funny, thought-provoking and will get you right in the feels
Red

THIS BOOK. Reader, I LOVED it. Funny & thoughtful & such brilliantly drawn characters I am genuinely bereft that my time with them is over. And it tackles some REALLY important issues with immense sensitivity & insight
Hannah Beckerman

Rejoice! Marian's back with her best book yet! An absolutely brilliant story with a very powerful emotional punch
Best
