Pineapple Street by Jenny Jackson

Staff Pick

This novel was pure enjoyment from the beautiful cover to the last page. Set in Brooklyn Heights, it tells the story of Old Money through the fortunes of the Stockton family, uber-rich for several generations now. As its latest children expand their world views through marriages and friendships, they come to terms with their life-long privileges and learn just how much wealth is necessary for one family.  There's lots to chew on in this gratifying read.
