Worse, Lucy’s father’s secret is now her own, one that isolates her from her friends, family, and even her boyfriend, Simon, the one person she expected would truly understand. When Lucy escapes to Maine, the home of her mysteriously estranged grandfather, she finally begins to get to the bottom of her family’s secrets and lies. "Just Fly Away" is a debut novel about family secrets, first love, the limits of forgiveness, and finding one's way in the world from an award-winning writer, actor, and director.
