"A hilarious and heartfelt coming-of-age and modern family drama, set in the queer underground of late 90s Portland, that explores the complications of belonging -- to a city, a culture, and a family -- and what happens when those forms can't quite contain who you really are"--,Provided by publisher.
Andrea Morales escaped her Midwestern Catholic childhood -- and the closet -- to create a home and life for herself within the thriving but insular lesbian underground of Portland, Oregon. One drunken night, reeling from a bad breakup and a friend's betrayal, she recklessly crosses enemy lines and hooks up with a man. To her utter shock, Andrea soon discovers she's pregnant, and she decides to have the baby. A decade later, when Lucia starts asking questions about the father she's never known, Andrea is forced to reconcile the past she hoped to leave behind with the life she's worked so hard to build.
