Who needs the truth? Eight-year-old Ivy has a vivid imagination and
tells lies so that people will like her. With her brother, Brice,
in the hospital, life at home feels unsettled and things become
even more strained after her father loses his job, along with his
sense of purpose. Ivy's parents might divorce and her best friend
hates her but, ever creative, she abandons her escapist fantasies
and determines to uncover the truth. In this sharp and funny
literary debut set in Northern California during the 1980s
recession, Fayette Fox delves deep into the dark heart of an
ordinary American family - and finds out that make-believe isn't
just for kids.
