This story switches between what happened before and after the barbecue. The reader doesn't know what actually happened for much of the story, but it changed the lives of everyone in the book. You get to see inside most of character's heads before, during and after the event. All the people are connected in different ways. You find out some aren't as perfect as others may think, and some are not as bad as everyone believes. Every person has several dimensions. The title is very appropriate. The truth comes out. Feelings of anger, craziness and guilt are abundant. Some issues need a therapist. Others just need openness. It's really good and showing how we're all messed up in some way and how life can change in a blink. It's a really good read about life and relationships.
