A magnetic novel about strangers and a vacation that goes terribly wrong!

I saw Leave the World Behind by Rumaan Alam trending on Barnes and Noble recently and I decided to look into it. It is a magnetic novel about two different familes that are strangers to each other who are forced together on a long weekend gone terribly wrong. It'll be a great holiday read to share with my reading group.

As stated on the Barnes and Noble website, the summary for Leave the World Behind is:

"Amanda and Clay head out to a remote corner of Long Island expecting a vacation: a quiet reprieve from life in New York City, quality time with their teenage son and daughter, and a taste of the good life in the luxurious home they’ve rented for the week. But a late-night knock on the door breaks the spell. Ruth and G. H. are an older couple—it’s their house, and they’ve arrived in a panic. They bring the news that a sudden blackout has swept the city. But in this rural area—with the TV and internet now down, and no cell phone service—it’s hard to know what to believe.

Should Amanda and Clay trust this couple—and vice versa? What happened back in New York? Is the vacation home, isolated from civilization, a truly safe place for their families? And are they safe from one other?

Suspenseful and provocative, Rumaan Alam’s third novel is keenly attuned to the complexities of parenthood, race, and class. Leave the World Behind explores how our closest bonds are reshaped—and unexpected new ones are forged—in moments of crisis. "
