Abandoned by her mother, Olivia Greene decides to take care of herself--if only she can keep it a secret Life's been strange for Olivia Greene ever since her mother, Luna Lee, went to the store for margarine and never came… back. Afraid of being sent to live with her terrible uncle--or worse, his children--Olivia carries out elaborate schemes to convince the people of Kumquat that Luna Lee still lives at home. Absolutely no one can find out--except, of course, for Olivia's best friend, Rosella. But Olivia's carefully constructed life threatens to fall apart with the arrival of the incredibly hot Raymond Mooney, whose family just moved back to Kumquat under mysterious circumstances. If he can tell Olivia his secrets, can't she tell him hers? Or would that threaten the lies Olivia has so carefully woven to protect herself?
