By Liz and Diana Welch

with Dan and Amanda Welch

“After the suspicious demise of dad and loss of mom to cancer, the orphaned Welch children
were split up; now grown, and in rocking chorus, Diana, Liz, Amanda, and Dan Welch explain

how in the world The Kids Are All Right.” —Vanity Fair

“This touching, funny memoir…is an ode to the strength of sibling bonds” —Cookie Magazine

“This frank, wry, aching memoir…will leave readers musing over memory’s slippery nature; the
imperfect, enduring bonds of family; and the human heart’s remarkable resilience.” —Booklist

“A brutally honest book that captures the journey of four people too young to face the

challenged they nevertheless had to face.” —Kirkus

“I can’t wait for this memoir to hit the shelves this fall! You will yell Bravo! and leap to your feet
with happiness when you finish reading this memoir. . . . Like Jeannette Wall’s The Glass Castle,
Diana, Dan, Liz, and Amanda Welch have written an intense, vibrant glimpse into their lives, an
extraordinary saga you’ll be glad to read and recommend to everyone.”
—Marilyn Smith, manager of buyers, Keplers Books and Music, Palo Alto, CA

“This is the story of a family that circumstances tried to destroy but love and loyalty saved.
It is impressive, affirming, and almost impossible to put down. READ THIS BOOK!!!”
—Jackie Blem, Tattered Cover Book Store, Denver, CO

“This is a tragic and heroic story that precisely maps a decade and reads like a spy thriller. The
Welch kids are legendary!” —Sean Wilsey, author of Oh the Glory of It All

“The Welch family’s multi-vocal story is impossible to put down. I read The Kids Are All Right
with awe at the resilience and hope a family can manage in the aftermath of unthinkable loss.”
—Danielle Trussoni, author of Falling Through the Earth

“Told with humor, compassion, and humility, and teeming with priceless ’80s references, this
story of parentless children learning to parent each other grabbed hold of my heart (and
attention) and refused to let go.” —Heidi Julavits, author of The Uses of Enchantment

The personal memoir category is a competitive one, and the bar has been

set high by books like The Liar’s Club, The Glass Castle, and Oh The Glory of

it All which continue to gain new fans years after publication. There is

something about these family stories that resonates with the reader,

making you feel you are getting a personal glimpse into the authors’ lives

and those of their families.

investment banker father’s mysterious death, which left the family with more than one million
