Very interesting and different! Better for older readers

When The Willoughbys came out on Netflix, my daughter couldn't get enough. When she realized there was a book, I couldn't say no.
Like most books-movies, there are differences and this book is no exception. It is strange, about parents who love eachother so much that they have no love left for thier own kids. As a result, the kids plan and plot to have a better life. It is definitely a satire and better for older readers (9+).
We thought the book was exciting, funny at times, and at other times downright crazy. But overall, we thought it was a great read!
After, I took the opportunity to have my daughter write a little report on the differences between the book and movie, which she actually enjoyed.
