What follows is an energetic, funny, and endearing tale of a twenty-something woman with an incurable need to keep moving, but without any real sense of direction. As she finds her own way, so too she hopes to help her family put their problems aside.

Early reviewers have already called Grace Mattioli’s wonderful debut “poignantly funny,” and “genuinely moving.”
