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 the Bay Area 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. Shortlisted for the 2013 Edinburgh International Book Festival First Book Award and Amazon’s Rising Stars Award, Fox’s debut novel will have the reader laughing out loud at every one of Ivy’s sharp observations.
