Summary, etc.:
After her father's involvement in a public scandal, Daisy must navigate the sale of the family home, her sister's inconvenient crush, and her best friend writing an expose, in a modern retelling of Jane Austen's classic Sense and Sensibility.
When it is revealed that her esteemed father had been involved in a public scandal before his untimely death, Daisy Richardson's family must sell the family home in Georgetown they can no longer afford-- but Daisy's mother is holding on with an iron grip. Her younger sister, Wallis, is ready to move on to bigger and better things but falls fast and hard for the most inconvenient person possible. And Atlas, Daisy's best friend, is writing an exposé on the one subject she is been desperate to avoid: her father. As Daisy works to keep her family intact amid social exile, public shaming, and quickly dwindling savings, another twist in the scandal comes to light. Daisy must confront the consequences of her continued silence and summon the courage to stand up and accept the power of her own voice. -- adapted from back cover
