Summary
The Voss family live in a repurposed church; the once cancer-stricken mother lives in the basement, the father is married to the mother's former nurse, the little half-brother isn't allowed to do or eat anything fun, and the eldest siblings are irritatingly perfect. Merit Voss collects trophies she hasn't earned and secrets her family forces her to keep. She meets Sagan, wit and unapologetic-- and completely unavailable. Merit decides to shatter their happy family illusion, but is forced to deal with the staggering consequences of telling the truth
Summary
A young woman reveals the dark secrets of her outwardly happy family before she leaves them behind, only to be confronted by the consequences of her decision when her escape plan fails
