A mesmerizing, darkly comic coming-of-age novel immersed in 1980s central Florida. Lies from the past and a dangerous present collide when, after fifteen years in exile, Michelle Miller returns to her tiny hometown of Lorida, Florida. She’s forced to confront the death of her best friend, but what if everything she remembers is a lie?

“Breier writes with fierce energy and a swampy verisimilitude in this twisty story of a woman unraveling a web of cruel lies. Surprising and affecting, it’s a terrifically entertaining exploration of emotional abuse and the cost of leaving your problems behind.” —Jeff Somers, author of The Electric Church

“Equal parts Freaks and Geeks, The Bad Seed and Welcome to the Dollhouse. I declined invitations to go out while I downed it in big gulps because I had to know what happened next.” —Liz Mason, manager of Quimby’s Bookstore (Chicago)

“…sticky, pre-digital, late 20th-century teenage attachments will suck you into a Central Florida liberally seasoned with 80s deep cuts.” —Ayun Halliday, author of No Touch Monkey!

Success! You're on the list.
