What do we really know about our parents or the ways they shape us? For twins Deirdre and Langston, 20, the answer is: not enough. With their father long dead and their mother now in a coma, they discover they don’t even know whom to notify. In fact, they understand almost nothing about their mother. They delve into her life, and as they do, they uncover secrets that revise the past and transform the future.
Set in the present and in the early days of the punk scene, this work of literary fiction combines elements of mystery, psychology, family drama, and rites of passage across two generations, with southern California as a character more than a setting.
