For those that loved/really liked Vacationland, I would say savor that and skip this sequel. I got to the beginning of chapter 6 and finally realized I didn't care what happened to any of these characters and closed the book. The characters weren't that interesting. I felt the author was finding ways to write in her political opinions rather than developing the characters and telling a good story. It was a letdown for me. Vacationland was written in vignettes and to write the sequel linear just didn't measure up. I felt the plot was forced and there really wasn't that much to add to these characters' stories.
