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.
Fayette Fox holds an MA in Publishing from the London College of Communication and a BA in Creative Writing from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. A freelance writer and former commissioning editor for Lonely Planet, Fayette has been commissioned by travel websites Openplaces and TripAdvisor.com. This is her first novel.
