Sarcastic and bold, Maxine Phillips receives what she thinks is the shock of her life when she learns the father she thought was dead for 18 years is very much alive and living in Oklahoma. But when she travels from her home in South Carolina and finally meets her father, Maxine is in for an even greater shock.

Named an Essence best-seller, Varian Johnson's debut novel explores the nuances of unusual relationships and one girl's struggle to become comfortable in her own skin.

    " First time reading this author. Although this book is geared more towards a YA audience I enjoyed it and totally did not see the end coming. I like that! I'd read more books by this author just to see what she's really all about. "

    " I didn't think her mother should have told her her father was dead. I think the friendship between her father and herself was interesting.I hated that one she knew who loved her and that she found God that her boy friend had to die. "

    " one star might be a little high for this book. I know it written from a 18 year old girl's perspective but it truly sounds as if it were written by a child. The 'plot' is also terrible. "
