Dana Stellgarten is slowly recovering from her divorce. She is trying to keep life as normal as possible for her two kids. Then she discovers her daughter is purging, her son is being picked on at school and then her wayward teenage niece shows up and her son's football coach hits on her. She realizes that they aren't handling the divorce as well as she thought. Will she be able to hold her struggling family together?
While a bit predictable in some areas, I liked Dana Stellgarten. She was forced into a rough situation, but handled it with a graciousness that was admirable. Overall it was a decent book, if you can handle the predictability, then you should be fine reading Deep Down True.
