"Could it really be that Amanda wrote this book when she was only sixteen? In a fugue of distinct voices, Marquit pulls us inside the dangerous fault lines of a family about to earthquake-a neglected wife sinking into madness, a husband adrift on a never-ending business trip, and two teenage daughters desperately trying to escape their lives by forging new ones. A prismatic page-turner about the lies we tell ourselves and each other, and the inventions we cling to--all from a young scribe who's well on her way to brilliance."
- Caroline Leavitt, author of Girls in Trouble
"Marquit skillfully interweaves recurring motifs....Sure to attract a Gen-Y following and further traumatize parents." --Kirkus
