I really liked this story, which focused on the fallout of one big lie. In the book, a teenaged gymnast in Canada gets pregnant, and she makes a declaration about who the father is. This declaration affects the trajectory of multiple families across a small town. What I loved was watching how all the pieces began to fall into place, as the reader slowly sees how different characters and different events fit together.
