Back cover copy

Letting go, stepping up and coming out...in the ways that matter most. Olympia's life is hectic and fulfilling - her legal career, her second marriage to a judge, her twin daughters just finishing high school, her son at college and her younger son, still at kindergarten, are all managed with energy and grace. Then one sunny day in May, she opens an invitation for her daughters to attend the most exclusive coming out ball in New York - and chaos erupts all around her. One twin's excitement is balanced by the other's outrage, her previous husband's profound snobbism is in sharp contrast to her current husband Harry's flat refusal to attend. As one twin is busy shopping for the perfect dress and the other siding with Harry's hostility at the very idea of this elitist event, a massive family feud breaks out. Things start to unravel with alarming speed, but can a night of calamity turn into an evening of magic?show more
