When Scarlet's older sister Juliet returns home from the big city, pregnant and with a new husband (and dog) Scarlet thinks she knows exactly what is going to happen. In fact, Scarlet is an introvert who spends a lot of time figuring out what is going on with everyone, at least in her own head. Caletti perfectly paces this story, until we realize how no one really knows anyone. Some of the bombshells are foreshadowed, others are not - dare I say just like real life. I also loved the other characters in the neighborhood - by the time the book was over I could picture every house, yard, street. But inside her often beautiful writing is a real story with real people.
