Brett and Layla Foster have been a couple since high school, so Brett’s request for a divorce not only shocks everyone, but strains their family – because the Fosters are the only relatives the orphaned Layla has.

And what happens to an extended family when one of its its bedrocks crumbles? Using alternating narrators, Caprice Crane deftly illustrates a tribe in crisis, handling the hardest problems life dishes out.
