Truth is relative. And Shelia’s been playing loose with it for years. She’s been lying to her husband about his attempts to get her pregnant. She’s been lying to her best friend about what really happened in Paris. She’s been avoiding her next door neighbor, Ayaan, ever since moving to Flossmoor, Illinois.

Dee spent most of her life on welfare, watching her often-absent father struggle with addiction and, lately, watching her mother’s battle with cancer. Dee had paid her dues.
