'This novel is an immersive story of a family trying their best to stay together in a world continuously pushing them apart. On the surface, the Rivas seem to have it all. What lies beneath the money and fame, however, is a heart wrenching story of loss and trauma. When a fire is started in the wake of their famous annual party, all that remains in the ashes is the secrets they are now forced to face. I devoured this novel.' - Recommended by Gabbie Pop, Dubray Dun Laoghaire
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.
