Summary

For two moms: How close is too close?

Playful, compelling, and deeply layered, What You Don’t See raises the stakes in friendship against the bittersweet backdrop of motherhood and the endlessly entertaining activities of well-heeled women’s groups. The story follows Livi, a spirited, outspoken PR executive, pivoting at thirty to full-time wife and mom. That goes better than imagined, that is, until she gets entangled in a romantic relationship with another mom.

But no coming-out party. No new set of indie friends.

At first, Livi’s able to defend the relationship, asserting it can all be perfectly normal in a world of well-meaning adults. But her ability to live transparently in this complex web loosens as her girlfriend resists truth, dragging Livi into a world of deceit and subterfuge.

What You Don’t See—set in an affluent Southern California neighborhood and a local hangout bar on the Mississippi Gulf Coast—is anything but ordinary. There’s a talking, know-it-all cat; a large, menacing cockroach; and a host of colorful characters, stirring it up as Livi wrestles with timeless questions of intimacy, friendship, and the yearning for meaningful relationships.

Think: The Help meets The Hours.
