Summary
Teenaged Nofar is so average that she's almost invisible. Serving customers ice cream, she is desperate for some kind of escape. One afternoon she tells a terrible lie, and suddenly everyone wants to talk to her: the press, her schoolmates, and even the boy upstairs. He is the only one who knows the truth, and he is demanding a price for his silence. Raymonde, an elderly immigrant whose best friend has just died, keeps her friend alive the only way she knows how: by inhabiting her stories. When Raymonde's lies take on a life of their own, Nofar and Raymonde must face the hidden corners of human nature. -- adapted from jacket
