Grace Schmeidler is dealing with her recently broken engagement, which is horrible enough, what with her perfect wedding plans gone to waste. If she think nothing could be worse than the embarrassment she feels now, she is wrong. Her best friend, Audrey, shows up to deliver the only news that could have made her desire to be invisible even stronger; her ex-fiancé married someone else using all of Grace’s wedding arrangements. As if this weren’t enough, Grace’s mother calls with equally unsettling news. Work no longer provides Grace with an escape, and she is forced to deal with life’s circumstances from a point of view she is unfamiliar with. This is a narrative about her journey through—not around—a situation she never dreamed she would find herself in.
