Meet John Nichols. He's fifty-something years old, an ex-basketball player, ex-author, ex-philanderer, ex-husband, ex-high school English teacher. And he's the father of three: two overachieving adult daughters and 19-year-old Ethan, who will never be an adult. John's older daughter is getting married, and as the family members travel to the celebration, John is secretly preparing for a life change that will alter his family's hearts forever.

The five Nichols' are held together by love and humor, as well as the spiky parts of sisterly competition and a difficult baby brother. Parents John and Mary have devoted themselves to caregiving, and John especially finds himself caught in the tension between being a parent and being true to himself. So when a new challenge comes their way in the wake of a road trip and wedding plans, the family bonds are stretched and tested. Funny, heartbreaking, and generous, IT'S. NICE. OUTSIDE. asks: What happens when you have to let go of the person who has been holding you up?

One of the best, funniest, endearing books that I have ever read. Read it in one night. Laughed so hard that I cried!

*****A wonderful, warm, funny family-focused book. Sentimental in the best ways-- laughs, tears. Reads with an authenticity that makes the characters come alive
