Crossroads Road is the first novel by the hilarious Jeff Kay. Jeff is most well known for his creation and nurturing of The West Virginia Surf Report, a blog that has found it's own cult following for it's documentation of life in suburbia. (Disclaimer: The WVSR is not a good source for sermon ideas)
Crossroads Road is the story of a family that is brought together in a quite unique way when the main character's mother-in-law wins a $254,000,000 jackpot. She decides to offer each of her kids $2,000,000 and a new house with one caveat - all of the houses will be built in the same cul de sac in California. Needless to say, hilarity ensues.
Each character is well developed and comes with their own neuroses and problems. Each of us will find someone from our family in there, even ourselves. If you are in need of laughter to the point of tears... this would be the book for you.
