From Jennifer Mathieu, the author of Moxie and The Truth About Alice, comes a stunning novel about the illusive nature of truth, the danger of keeping secrets, and the fierce and sometimes destructive love that can exist in families.
“Mathieu masterfully explores how families break, how siblings survive, and all of the ways that love can hold us back and let us go.”
—Robin Benway, National Book Award–winning author of Far from the Tree
“A richly layered exploration of the complicated love and lies that attend familial bonds.”
—Jeff Zentner, Morris Award–winning author of The Serpent King
