“I don't know Nancy Pearl, but I imagine the beloved librarian turned national book commentator would be too modest to recommend her debut for your reading list, so I'll do it for her. Pearl has written an intelligent, character-driven page-turner that asks important questions about honesty and forgiveness and examines how conscious choices and behaviors strengthen us and our relationships. Raised by brilliant but emotionally detached psychologist parents, Lizzie faces ongoing and often humorous internal battles that ultimately lead to a crossroads in her marriage to George. You may examine your own relationships as you read this witty, kindhearted story. Pearl clearly seems to love the characters she has created. You'll fall for them, too.”

Winter 2018 Reading Group Indie Next List

“Petulant, querulous, delusional, and yet somehow lovable: that’s our Lizzie. All her life she’s been treated by her parents—experimental psychologists—primarily as a research subject. She’s haunted by a dreadful adolescent misstep and by the memory of a boyfriend who disappeared. Enter George, the compassionate, affable product of a loving family. A mismatch? Perhaps, if you don’t take into account persistence, goodness, a passion for football, and love. Celebrated librarian and NPR commentator Nancy Pearl’s debut novel is populated not with characters but with living, breathing, three-dimensional people who are about to become your close friends.”
