Closes best-selling debut, Girls in White Dresses-about three young women dealing with job stress and uncertain love while everyone else is getting married-sounded suspiciously like a made-for-TV movie but was something else entirely. Once again, Close sets out to deal smartly with domestic crisis. Weezy and Will Coffey always tried to be the best of parents, so why is thin-skinned Martha back home in her childhood bedroom after a career crisis, Claire locked in her apartment after ditching her fiance, and college senior Max in real girl trouble? From an author tracking upward.

From the author of the national bestseller "Girls in White Dresses": a gloriously funny new novel of sibling rivalry, thwarted expectations, and that place people return to when things go staggeringly awry: home.
