 About the Book 

MAISIE is far from perfect. Quite far. A lapsed Catholic, (much to her mothers chagrin), shes also parading around pretending to be Jewish for the sake of her boyfriend and their seemingly flawless relationship. But all is not as it appears on theMoreMAISIE is far from perfect. Quite far. A lapsed Catholic, (much to her mothers chagrin), shes also parading around pretending to be Jewish for the sake of her boyfriend and their seemingly flawless relationship. But all is not as it appears on the surface. Despite resenting her mother for all her conservative vices, Maisie is equally desperate for her approval. Sure, Maisie is living in sin, she swears like a drunken sailor, and shes weaving a web of lies she has no idea how to get out of- but deep down she strives to be the ideal daughter. Underneath this comical faade is a family tragedy that both Maisie and her mother are struggling to come to terms with in their own, heartfelt way. Will Maisie and her mother be able to hedge their differences and bury the past, or will it continue to haunt them and drive them apart? As Maisies perfect life begins to unravel, she realizes that no family or relationship is perfect, and that maybe, neither is she.
