The Vacationers: A Novel - Emma Straub

The Vacationers by Emma Straub
Sylvia a is done with high school and now she wants to do something for the summer and is thinking of going on the family vacation. She can practice her Spanish there.
Book also follows James and their parents in Spain.  Jim has lost his editorial job, something to do with a younger female, his new assistant. They accepted his resignation with the magazine and now he has nothing to do.
Frannie-his wife will give them 2 weeks time in Spain to decide what to do with him...It's their 35th wedding anniversary also...
Frannie's gay friends are also there with them...liked the book for the travel and all the people involved, from different age groups and with different set of problems.
Lots of secrets, Sylvia makes a list of things to do before college...lots of infidelity...
Love the travel descriptions.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
