Her mother was a liar.
Eve is a frustrated sixteen-year-old who uncovers a dark family secret. Muriel is trapped in managed care by the son who stole her fortune.

Together they confront Muriel's wavering cognition, Eve's emotional wounds, and sometimes each other. They're on the road to salvation--unless their families catch them first!
Michael Jai Grant's new novel explores people's inclination to do the wrong things for the right reasons. He writes a provocative and spirited journey that challenges our notions of dementia and elder care, sexuality, the difference between religion and spirituality, and the complex world of Teenagedom. At its core, it delves into themes of friendship, family, liberation, and the circuitous routes we all take to finding our way home.
