The Family Fang

Author: Kevin Wilson

Genre: Realistic fic

Age: YA, Adult

POV: 3rd person

Summary: Mr. and Mrs. Fang called it art. Their children called it mischief. Performance artists Caleb and Camille Fang dedicated themselves to making great art. But when an artist’s work lies in subverting normality, it can be difficult to raise well-adjusted children. Just ask Buster and Annie Fang. For as long as they can remember, they starred (unwillingly) in their parents’ madcap pieces. But now that they are grown up, the chaos of their childhood has made it difficult to cope with life outside the fishbowl of their parents’ strange world.

Review: This book is weird, and I like every part of it. The humor is on par with each character. At the end of almost every chapter there a flashback in which the writing flows nicely with the story, giving information about one of the Fangs. 

Annie and Buster have a strong sibling relationship and can tell as adults they want nothing to do with their parent’s art. Their parents are not purposely bad parents, they are just really dedicated to their art. Strangely enough I know artist that are like that. I can understand Annie and Buster’s frustration of not being rise like a normal family. 

Throughout the whole book I just kept reading to find out what bizarre situation is going to happen next. This book may not be everyone's cup of tea. If you like reading something that off beaten with some family drama throw in, then check this book out.
