"Maybe" is short for Maybelline Mary Katherine Mary Ann Chesnut. And yeah, saddled with a name like that, you'd be right that her mother is an alcoholic charm-school-owning Beauty Pageant graduate. Maybe's mother's been married six times, but none of the guys were Maybe's father.
And when her Mother chooses her latest fiancee over Maybe, Maybe and her two best friends, Ted and Hollywood, road trip to Los Angeles.
Ted gets a job as a personal assistant to a fading legend of the silver screen.
Hollywood gets a jump on his admission to USC film school with a summer session, working on his documentary.
And Maybe is on a search for her father.
Yes, there IS some GLBTQ content in this book. But... I don't want to spoil it. So, with Lisa's book, I'm inaugurating a new category on this blog: "Surprise Gay Content." Enjoy!
