Deep Down True | [Juliette Fay]

Deep Down True

Newly divorced Dana Stellgarten has always been unfailingly nice—even to telemarketers—but now her patience is wearing thin. Money is tight, her kids are reeling from their dad’s departure, and her goth teenage niece has just landed on her doorstep. As she enters the slipstream of postdivorce romance and is befriended by the town queen bee, Dana finds that the tension between being true to yourself and being liked doesn’t end in middle school—and that sometimes it takes a real friend to help you embrace adulthood in all its flawed complexity.

What the Critics Say

“Enormously readable and hugely relatable!” (Kelly Corrigan, New York Times best-selling author of The Middle Place)

“Engrossing, touching, and immensely satisfying. The truth shines on every page. I’d almost be willing to go back to junior high if I could sit at Juliette Fay’s lunch table!” (Beth Harbison, New York Times best-selling author)

“When I wasn’t inside the world of this book—because this is a book that you enter instead of merely read—I longed to be. I love it for its intensely human characters and for the way the author grants them their flaws as generously as she celebrates their daily decencies, their persistent hopefulness, their moments of personal grace.” (Marisa de los Santos, New York Times best-selling author of Love Walked In)

    "Enjoyable story and characters, felt true to life"
    Would you listen to Deep Down True again? Why?

    I would. I read this book at the same time as I was listening to
    Erik Larson's "In the Garden of Beasts" and it was a breath of fresh air.
    The characters are all engaging and portrayed realistically. The story is neither
    sad nor happy, but felt real. Tha narrator was terrific.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked most of the characters in the story.


    What does Robynn Rodriguez bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has a lovely voice with a certain joyous quality. I really enjoyed listening to her.
