As a housegirl, Belinda knows how to follow the rules. Eleven-year-old Mary is the young housegirl-in-training and the little sister Belinda never had.

But when the cracks in their defenses open up, the secrets they have both been holding tightly threaten to seep out. This debut novel is a moving and unexpectedly funny exploration of friendship and family, shame and forgiveness.
