From the Sunday Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & The Six.

A lifetime holding it together.
One party will bring it crashing down.
Malibu: August, 1983. It's the day of Nina Riva's annual end-of-summer party, and anticipation is at a fever pitch. Everyone wants to be around the famous Rivas: Nina, the talented surfer and supermodel; brothers Jay and Hud, one a championship surfer, the other a renowned photographer; and their adored baby sister, Kit. Together, the siblings are a source of fascination in Malibu and the world over-especially as the offspring of the legendary singer, Mick Riva.
By midnight the party will be completely out of control.
By morning, the Riva mansion will have gone up in flames.
But before that first spark in the early hours before dawn, the alcohol will flow, the music will play, and the loves and secrets that shaped this family's generations will all come bubbling to the surface.
Malibu Rising is a story about one unforgettable night in the life of a family: the night they each have to choose what they will keep from the people who made them . . . and what they will leave behind.
'Immerses us in a glamorous, star-studded world, but is full of raw human emotion. Its characters felt completely real to me - each one is flawed and messy and impossible not to love.' BETH O'LEARY
'The perfect, literal, beach read, with the emotional depth of the ocean' HOLLY BOURNE
'The escapism we all need- a sex-on-the-beach cocktail (quite literally) of a book' PANDORA SYKES
'When the party starts, it's celebrity mayhem but the heart of the book is family, love and loyalty. I adored everything about this punchy and incisive take on fame and its consequences, from the sympathetic characters to the salty surf atmosphere.' DAILY MAIL
'This summer's must-read novel' SARRA MANNING, RED
'It's a full on escapist delight' STYLIST, Best Fiction of 2021
'Unapologetically escapist beach-read fiction' SUNDAY TIMES
'I did not want this book to end!' PRIMA, Book of the Month
'Pure exhilaration' THE TIMES

Imagine Blue Water High and Selling Sunset had a lovechild' EVENING STANDARD
