Katherine Dunne and her children plan to sail on their family boat during their summer vacation. No one is looking forward to this trip, including Katherine. Her daughter is depressed and suicidal, her middle son is a stoner with unused potential, and her youngest son is somewhat uptight. Their family vacation quickly turns into their worst nightmare.

Meanwhile back in Manhattan, Katherine's second husband, Peter who is a lawyer, stays behind to prepare for his upcoming trial. Little does Katherine know, her loving husband is anything but that.

Sail is true to JP's writing style: short chapters, plot twists, and plenty of supporting characters. Overall, I thought reading Sail was like watching a combined episode of Lost and Survivor, with a Law and Order twist for an ending. (3/5)
