The Vacationers by Emma Straub

Boomer saw that I was reading this book called The Vacationers and he asked, "What's it about?" I said, "A family goes on vacation." And Boomer said, "That sounds nice." But he doesn't know that the family is in quite a fragile place. The parents are contemplating a divorce even though this vacation is supposed to be a celebratory 35th wedding anniversary trip. The brother is in a not-so-great place and the sister is reeling from a friend's betrayal. This is all of the baggage that the family brings with them to the island of Mallorca.

The Vacationers is a pretty light, so-so read. It would be a great beach read.
