Victoria (named after the Queen for not so flattering reasons) is described as the “tester cake” baby before the perfection of her younger sister came along. Victoria is the outcast in her family because she does not fit the cookie cutter image of her family's L.A. perfection. Moving to New York to take a teaching position, Victoria finds a group of equally unconventional friends and a life of her own. However, one cannot avoid family forever, and as her sister's wedding draws closer Victoria once again has to face her personal demons. A nice light summer read.
