Galant skewers the shallow, striving, McMansion-dwelling suburbanites in this engaging satire. Heather Peters is staring 35 in the face—though "depending on the light, [she could] still pass for a high school cheerleader"; her husband, Kevin, can barely stand her half the time, and her son, Conner, is a complete misfit—but at least they've just landed their dream home in Galapagos Estates, a new development in New Jersey.
The book is moving up the ranks quickly over on Amazon.com. Rattled was number 3,949 yesterday in Amazon books and today it’s 2,870. For some reason Galant’s publisher did not send us a copy for review, but the New York Times, the Boston Globe, USA TODAY and the magazine More have good things to say in their reviews. From USA TODAY:
Galant crafts a clever plot that builds to a screamingly funny climax. It is so well-constructed that P.G. Wodehouse, the master of madcap humor, might approve.Congratulations Debra!
