It is 1986. Erica Richards lives in West Meadow, Long Island, with her four young children and successful Wall Street analyst husband. But don't be fooled by her seemingly placid suburban lifestyle. Erica is fierce, curious, uncompromising, and often impulsive. When her teenage nephew Jared rebels against his straight-laced parents he turns to Erica for help, setting in motion a chain of events that will take all of them careening down a dangerous and twisty highway. Buckle your seatbelt, crank up the '80s soundtrack, and learn how stunningly easy it is to keep big secrets in plain sight.
