“Quinn is determined to set things right with all of the women her womanizing father has wronged. Enlisting the help of her stepsister, she sets out to make things right and, along the journey, she mends her broken heart as well. Told with great humor, this is a road trip to remember!”
-- Hallie Wilkins, Anderson's Bookshop, Naperville, IL
Quinn is surrounded by women who have had their hearts broken. Between her mother, her aunt, and her grandmother, Quinn hears nothing but cautionary tales. She tries to be an optimist ? after all, she's the dependable one, the girl who never makes foolish choices. But when she is abruptly and unceremoniously dumped, Quinn starts to think maybe there really are no good men. It doesn't help that she's gingerly handling a renewed relationship with her formerly absent father. He's a little bit of a lot of things: charming, selfish, eccentric, lazy...but he's her dad, and Quinn's just happy to have him around again. Until she realizes how horribly he's treated the many women in his life, how he's stolen more than just their hearts. Determined to, for once, take action in her life, Quinn joins forces with the half sister she's never met and the little sister she?ll do anything to protect. Together, they set out to right her father's wrongs...and in doing so, begin to uncover what they?re really looking for: the truth. Once again, Deb Caletti has created a motley crew of lovably flawed characters who bond over the shared experiences of fear, love, pain, and joy ? in other words, real life. Caletti's gifts for voice and for conjuring multidimensional personalities are at their sharpest.? Publishers Weekly starred review
