Daisy Jones & the Six is another great book by Taylor Jenkins Reid. If I were going to nitpick, I would say her style of an 11th hour child-related plot twist only really works the first time (and I read Evelyn Hugo before I got StoryGraph), but that is a minor thing. The ending also feels a little abrupt. But I love the level of detail, and the inclusion of the lyrics from the album in the back. I love the messy tension between Billy and Daisy. I love fictionalized versions of things we tend to use to share the truth, like a documentary or like an academic paper (House of Leaves ftw), and this obviously delivered in that realm. I wish I had listened to it as audiobook, but by the time I realized that was the best format, I wanted to read the book too much to wait for that version.
