About this book

Book Summary

Anita and Bunny have been friends since high school, when Anita was a beauty queen runner-up and Bunny a sweet single mother of no more than average prettiness. Fifteen years later, facing a future that seems increasingly difficult, the friends turn to one another and find reserves of love and strength that help heal the wounds they inadvertently inflict upon each other.
'[A] wise, moving novel' - PW
